Amaluna is almost here!
Premieres December 11 at Sun Life Stadium
New Show Dates Added, Limited Tickets Available From As Low As $35

Amaluna by Cirque du Soleil will open to a packed house in Miami on Thursday December 11 at Sun Life Stadium. The cast and crew of Amaluna are finishing up shows in Atlanta, GA this week and are preparing to travel to Miami with their 2,000 tonnes of equipment, in the convoy of 65 trucks.

To celebrate the Premiere in Miami and due to an overwhelming demand, additional show dates have been added with some tickets starting as low as $35. Tickets can be purchased by visiting… or by calling 1-877-9 CIRQUE. Amaluna’s show dates have now been extended to run in Miami until January 25 2015.

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 honors 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.

Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon”; a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where this magical story unfolds.

Some 30 years ago, Cirque du Soleil was but a dream. It was the dream of a small community of travelling performers who would do anything to share their love of the stage, of circus and of the world. The family has grown since then and now includes thousands of dreamers–creators, artists, technicians and workers who toil in the shadows. The dream has become a symbol of Québec pride, an international entertainment company that has brought 35 large-scale shows to life–20 of which are still in operation. The company, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in June 2014, has brought wonder and delight to close to 150 million spectators in more than 300 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has close to 4,000 employees, including 1,300 performing artists from close to 50 different countries.

Amaluna is proud to be presented by Visa Signature, the official presenting sponsor of Cirque du Soleil, in association with Citi Cards. We also gratefully acknowledge our official sponsors for Amaluna, DHL and Xerox.

An art installation slash public display of happiness, The Happy Wall is a giant chalkboard creation where you’re invited to answer the question, “What makes YOU happy?”

The Happy Wall encourages ALL people — visitors and locals of all ages, interests and backgrounds — to pick up a piece of chalk and jump headfirst into a happiness movement! Draw, write, doodle — express your happiness however you wish.

During the wall’s appearance in Cocowalk, there’ll be a whole host of programming revolving around it including live music, art, giveaways and more!

The Happy Wall is presented by Happify, an amazing website and app that empowers people to shift their mindsets and achieve higher levels of happiness and emotional well-being through fun, science-based activities and games. As Happify says, “Science has shown that happiness is winnable.”

Additional upbeat, positive brand sponsors include Tervis, KIND Snacks, Brent Berman & Associates — Your Health & Happiness Headquarters and the Institute for Inspired Organizational Cultures. The wall was designed and built by the talented PV Engineering Team out of Osprey, Florida.

Even those who can’t visit The Happy Wall in person are encouraged to participate by telling the world what makes them happy via social media. People are asked to post to Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook using the hashtags #whatmakesmehappy and #TheHappyWall, and The Happy Wall team will be re-posting and sharing joy from around the world.

Never underestimate the power of Happy.
