Upcoming: Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy

cirque dreams

It’s no secret that the Roarbots are fans of acrobatics and the whole “artistic circus” genre. (See our tour of Cirque du Soleil’s International Headquarters here.)

Cirque Dreams is in this same category and has been around since 1993, entertaining audiences around the world in theatres, casinos, theme parks, and at sea on cruise lines. They have a number of different performances touring at any one time.

Their newest show is called Jungle Fantasy and is currently touring the United States. Created and directed by theatrical and circus impresario Neil Goldberg, Jungle Fantasy is an exotic encounter inspired by nature’s unpredictable creations that are brought to life by an international cast of soaring aerialists, spine-bending contortionists, acrobats, jugglers and musicians.

Cirque Dreams

The journey comes to life in a fantastical jungle setting filled with flowers, magical trees, and a variety of special effects. From the Butterfly Ballet and Flipping Monkeys to Hopping Frogs and Stretching Lizards, this explosion of imagination and theatrics looks like it will exhilarate and entertain audiences of all ages.

Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy will be at the Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA (just outside Washington, DC) on Friday, September 5 at 8 pm and on Saturday, September 6 at 7:30 pm. Tickets range from $25-$50 and are available for purchase online at wolftrap.org, in person at the Wolf Trap Box Office, or by phone at 1.877.WOLFTRAP (877.965.3872).
