Cirque du Soleil TORUK – The First Flight in Cleveland

The new Cirque du Soleil touring show inspired by the record-breaking movie, AVATAR is in Cleveland, Ohio this weekend as part of a global world tour. TORUK – The First Flight will transport you to the world of Pandora with a visually stunning live set with eye-popping alien landscapes.  The word TORUK refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky.

In this production, you’ll be able to experience a storytelling odyssey with a live narrator of a show filled with stunning visuals, stirring choreography, and dazzling acrobatics mixed with modern dance. The story of AVATAR was made for such a Cirque du Soleil performance with a great storyline with plenty of action and changing alien landscape settings.

More on the story of TORUK – The First Flight:

Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora.

When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omaticaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands.

Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to experience a Cirque du Soleil show in Cleveland in 2012, it was the best show we’ve ever experienced anywhere in Ohio or on our travels! Our children were younger then, so we didn’t bring them. It was perfect for date night! This year, we will be bringing our 10 and 12 year old children with us and know that they will equally be delighted by the brilliant performance, setting, and overall experience. I can’t wait for them to experience Cirque du Soleil for the first time. I’ll be sure to share our family night experience with you after the show!
