Cirque du Soleil – Toruk the First Flight takes off in September

The First Flight by Cirque du Soleil, inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie Avatar, is coming to the BMO Harris Bradley Center for six shows Sept. 22-25.

Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.

Tickets are on sale now, including family four packs.
