A scene from "Amaluna," a new Cirque du Soleil show that opened earlier this year in Montreal and comes to a tent at Mall of America for a limited engagement starting September 26.
Directed by Tony-nominated Diane Paulus, a new Cirque show called "Amaluna" hits the tent near Mall of America on September 26. It's being called "a limited engagement," but no closing date has been announced. Tickets go on sale Friday (June 7) at cirquedusoleil.com/amaluna.
"Amaluna" tells of a women-dominated island invaded by a bunch of guys. Love story. Conflict. Gymnastics. Aerialism. Music is performed by an all-women band.
Paulus, pictured, is artistic director of American Repertory Theater at Harvard. She was nominated for a Tony as director of the revival of "Hair."
