Cirque du Soleil Amaluna Boston Tickets

Cirque du Soleil Amaluna Boston Tickets

Cirque du Soleil's Empowering Amaluna

Known primarily for their high-flying, death-defying trapeze artists and mind-boggling contortionists, Cirque du Soleil and its players offer Bostonites a unique new performance with a plot that revolves around romance and the moon. Described as an "estrogen fest" by one reviewer, the show is female friendly, incorporating the feminine symbolism of earth's natural satellite. The result is gorgeous, entrancing and unlike any other touring production on the road. Distinctive even from other Cirque performances, the Cirque du Soleil "Amaluna" production is the perfect celebration of female strength and individuality, but it's not only the ladies who will enjoy the show. Based loosely upon Shakespeare's "The Tempest," the various players -- both male and female -- love, hate, fight, make up and play on a stunning assortment of equipment that's sure to entertain the whole family.


The show begins with two female clowns -- a maid and a ship captain -- who fall in love, begin a family and provide gentle introductory entertainment before the main story begins. Prospera, the queen of the island filled with goddesses, is preparing for her daughter Miranda's coming-of-age celebration, which will allow her to pass on her knowledge of womanhood, balance, rebirth and renewal to her daughter. The raucous ceremony results in a terrific storm that sends a ship full of sailors crashing into the island's beach. True love blossoms when a certain sailor -- Prince Romeo -- meets Miranda, but it's not happily ever after for them yet.

Cirque du Soleil "Amaluna" appeals to a diverse audience not only because it's beautiful and impressive, but also because it celebrates women in such a way that everyone with tickets to the show feels empowered by the end.


The Cirque du Soleil "Amaluna" tour begins its Boston run Thursday, May 29 and continues through Sunday, June 15. Events occur on weekends, after a debut performance Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Cirque du Soleil "Amaluna" Boston tickets can be purchased for all show times, which are: 8 p.m. shows on Friday and Saturday, 5 p.m. evening shows on Sunday, 1:30 p.m. matinée shows on Sunday, and 4:30 p.m. matinée shows on Saturday.


Costume designer for Cirque du Soleil "Amaluna" Meredith Caron had a specific inspiration for her designs, which included elements from multiple time periods and various locations in order to create a contemporary yet anachronistic feel. She worked to blend East and west, past and present for her collection, which numbers 130 costumes with more than 800 individual pieces.


Though occasional changes must be made due to unforeseen events, the original cast includes as many as 50 performers, who hail from 15 different countries. Such a diverse cast works surprisingly well together, especially in a production that calls on inspiration from all corners of the globe. Guy Laliberte, founder and creative guide, was inspired to create a show honoring women. Director Diane Paulus helped him realize his vision with a cast that is 70% female, and one of the most unusual and beautiful Cirque du Soleil experiences yet.

Original Author

Randy Weiner, husband to Diane Paulus, first penned the narrative, which relies on a Shakespearean story, Greek myths and "The Magic Flute," among other influences. Everyone had a hand in the production, from Creative Director Fernand Rainville to Costume Designer Meredith Caron.


Like all Cirque du Soleil performances, "Amaluna" is produced in-house by Cirque du Soleil.
