Having opened at London’s Royal Albert Hall in January 2016, Amaluna was welcomed with praise as audiences were left mesmerised by the stunning production. Amaluna is a tale of castaway romance and the obstacles that true love presents, described by The Times as “thrillingly executed” the London Evening Standard as “a dazzling display of acrobatic excellence”. Amaluna is filled with jaw-dropping performances and Cirque du Soleil’s signature mind-blowing acts, which are sure to stun audiences when the show comes to Manchester and makes its London return.
Amaluna’s talented cast is predominately female with an all-female band and includes three British performers. Marissa King can be seen performing on the uneven bars, Rachael Wood is the guitarist and David Rimmer from Southport, is an acrobat in the teeterboard act. The show is written and directed by Tony Award-winning director, Diane Paulus and is Cirque du Soleil’s 33rd production.
Cirque du Soleil brings Amaluna to intu Trafford Centre, Manchester under the iconic Big Top for five weeks, followed by a second run at one of London’s finest performing arts venues, the Royal Albert Hall. Two truly spectacular ways to witness the show, Cirque du Soleil continues to cement itself as one of the world’s greatest entertainment companies as Amaluna takes the UK by storm.
