About the show
Dralion is a Cirque du Soleil classic and an internationally acclaimed production that has entertained more than 11 million people worldwide since its world premiere in Montreal in 1999. In May 2009, Dralion embarked on a new journey, performing the same mesmerizing production, but now in arenas around the world, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town.
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
