Surging ticket sales have led Cirque du Soleil to schedule an additional two weeks for its Dralion show in Brisbane.
Dralion will premiere on November 27 under the trademark blue and yellow Big Top and continue through to January 4, including performances on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
“The sales for Dralion tickets in Brisbane have already exceeded our expectations, telling us that once again Queenslanders will step up to the mark and embrace the Cirque du Soleil experience,” said Cirque du Soleil vice-president of marketing for Asia Pacific, Milan Rokic.
Created and directed by Guy Caron, Dralion has been touring the world since April 1999 and is currently wowing audiences in Sydney, and will be moving to Canberra in mid-October. It is a fusion of ancient Chinese circus traditions and the avant-garde approach of Cirque du Soleil.
Tickets for Dralion can be purchased online at www.cirquedusoleil.com or by phone on 1300 130 300. Tickets range from $55 to $119 for adults and $35 to $95 for children.
