Six Characters in Search of an Author adapted by Steve Moulds from the play by Luigi Pirandello, directed by Wayne E. Robinson Jr.

The play that brought Pirandello world-wide fame. This new look heightens the comic contrast between melodrama and contemporary skepticism while asking the audience to consider just what we believe is real.

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 cirquedusoleil.com/amalu… 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.

Fresh from its Off-Broadway run, Miracle on South Division Street is the story of the Nowak family living amidst the urban rubble of Buffalo, NY’s East Side. Clara the family matriarch happily runs her soup kitchen and tends to the family heirloom, a twenty-foot shrine of the Blessed Mother, which adjoins the house. This beacon commemorated the day in 1942 that the Virgin Mary appeared to her father at his home-based barbershop. During the course of this very funny and original play, the entire family’s faith is shaken to the core as the family legend seems to be unraveling. The evening’s results are heartfelt and hilarious.

Performances are Wednesday – Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m.
A special weekday matinee is scheduled on Wednesday, December 10 at 2 p.m.
