Dralion™ (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) is a signature Cirque du Soleil® production acclaimed by more than seven million people worldwide since it premiered in 1999 in Montreal, Canada.
After many years performing under the big top, Dralion will now be presented in arenas around the world, with the same quality performance.
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature.
The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
Dralion is the unusual place where these two cultures meet.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form.
Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre.
In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
