Cirque: Amaluna in #Toronto

There are two big-top tents in the Portlands along Cherry Street right now - Cavalia's Odysseo and the new Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna. Horses are playing in the white tent near Lake Shore Boulevard and the Cirque tent is blue and yellow located across from the T&T Supermarket.
When the Odysseo's tent first showed up I thought it was a Cirque production, it turns out it was started by one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil - it is coming to a close on September 9, 2012. Cirque has had a few tents set up in the area over the years and their new show starts September 6, 2012.
"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 honours 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."
