The highlight of the evening came during the intense and romantic “Pas de deux,” a dreamlike aerial dance where a couple intertwine and soar above using long bands of blue cloth as they execute numerous acts of flexibility and strength.

“Dralion's” use of the four elements that rule the natural order was represented by performers dressed in various colors, including air (blue), water (green), fire (red) and the earth (ochre). Throughout the night, these different elements in human form performed together, eventually achieving a form of harmony between nature and humankind.

Cirque du Soleil shows rarely disappoint due to the high quality of performers, showmanship and the multidisciplinary blend of the arts used in great storytelling. “Dralion” follows in this tradition and ensures a compelling show worthy of the “Circus of the Sun.”
