Disclosure: My family and I were invited to enjoy this show Cirque Du Soleil Toruk – The First Flight, free of charge, in exchange for our honest and unbiased review!
Remember James Cameron’s AVATAR? Well, this brand-spanking new Cirque show (World Premier was just before Christmas) is set 2,000 years BEFORE that movie.
With the award-winning director’s guidance, TORUK, is a magical world full of (yes, blue people) puppetry, technology and plenty of acrobatics.
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.
I’m excited to catch this show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City!
