After completing its first summer in New York City and wowing over 500,000 guests, Zarkana™ by Cirque du Soleil® is returning to Radio City Music Hall for the Summer of 2012!
This epic spectacle plunges audiences into a fantastically twisted world where international artists perform highly-acrobatic feats, heightened by original live music. Be there as Zarkana transforms the grandest stage in the world into a world of unreality as only Cirque du Soleil could imagine.
Zarkana is an acrobatic rock opera that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical virtuosity rubs shoulders with the strange.
The story follows Zark, a magician who has lost his powers - and the love of his life - in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. He runs into the Mutants, four sirens as sinister as they are fabulous, who are determined to divert him from his quest.
Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a slightly twisted musical and acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to festivity and love regained.
