It’s Cirque time in Baltimore!!

Ten years after Cirque du Soleil Varekai debuted in Baltimore under the Big Top, it’s back from Wednesday, July 8 to Sunday, July 12 at the Royal Farms Arena.  

On Tuesday July 7, 2015 Cirque du Soleil invaded Downtown Baltimore for some fun around town photo ops.
SobeSavvy.Com was there to experience the excitement with the characters and snap some photographs at the sneak peek events!

WHERE: Maryland Science Center &
Phillips Seafood Restaurant (Baltimore)

WHAT:  Special blogger and media meet & greet at the Maryland Science Center with the publicist and two characters (including Skywatcher, the mad scientist and ingenious inventor) from the show! Afterwards, Cirque du Soleil Varekai gets a Taste of Baltimore Phillips Seafood Restaurant.

It was a great opportunity to learn more about the show and get some personal time as well as awesome photos with the characters!!  

Public guests received ticket discounts and a chance to win a family four pack of tickets for the Wednesday showing.

Exciting news…Cirque du Soleil returns to the Baltimore, MD area with “Varekai.”

A dormant volcano, a mystical forest and an ancient prophecy… the adventure of Icarus begins when Varekai, Cirque du Soleil’s latest arena touring production, descends from the sky and into the Royal Farms Arena with PERFORMANCES FROM JULY 08 TO JULY 12, 2015 ! Ticket prices range from $35 – $145 (subject to change). Tickets for Varekai are available now online to Cirque Club members and the general public ! Cirque Club membership is free and benefits includes access to advance tickets, special offers and exclusive behind the scenes information. To join, go to www.cirqueclub.com. To purchase tickets, go to www.cirquedusoleil.com/varekai or call 1-800-745-3000.

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world – a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.The story of Varekai begins as Icarus, a solitary young man, falls from the sky and lands in a lush, wonderous world called Varekai. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest – a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures – Icarus takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. At the edge of time, in a place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.

The word Varekai (pronounced ver•ay•’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

Alluring, Adventurous, Amorous, Amazing! #Amaluna @Cirque #CirqueduSoleil @SunLifeStadium #Miami thru Jan 25th ~ Recap by #SobeSavvy .com

Cirque du Soleil has brought Amaluna, their 33rd production to the magic city this month. It is an ode to the feminine. All female band and clearly over 60 % of the almost 50 member cast are women. Set under the big top near Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Amaluna was just as visually satisfying as their permanent shows in Vegas. There are some concessions they had to make due to this being a temporary touring version. With that being said my fellow ticket holders delighted in the shows mesmerizing acrobatics that Cirque du Soleil has become known for worldwide.

Amaluna is a beautiful visual orgy of all shades of blue. Without giving away too much of the plot, Amaluna is a story that has a princess and a queen. Moon cycles and water play an important part of the tale. The production has an energy and power that is definitely Frozen-esque. Aerialist abound everywhere. They drop out of seemingly nowhere to perform amazing spins twists and contortions. The music and images merge perfectly to give you a unforgettable experience. Everyone left the big tent with stars in their eyes and smiles on their faces.
