On Monday, Oct. 28, a team of more than 60 men and women worked for several hours to pound pegs, unfurl the canvas, and, finally, hoist more than 100 supporting poles to raise the iconic Big Top at Oracle Park in preparation for the Cirque du Soleil San Francisco engagement of AMALUNA, performing. Performances will take place under the Big Top at Oracle Park in San Francisco from Sunday, Nov. 3 through Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020.
Due to audience demand, Cirque du Soleil has also announced the extension of the Sacramento engagement of AMALUNA. Performances are now scheduled under the Big Top at Sutter Health Park (formerly Raley Field) from Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020 through Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020. Tickets (starting at $54) for newly announced performances will be available starting on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 10 a.m. by visiting cirquedusoleil.com/amaluna or calling 1-877-9CIRQUE (1-877-924-7783).
AMALUNA invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honors femininity, renewal, rebirth, and balance – which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next. In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith, and harmony.
