Cirque du Soleil: Volta (Tue. Sep. 19, 2017)

Cirque du Soleil hosted it’s Official Premiere Event and festivities in Toronto for New Big Top Show VOLTA!

Celebrity guests captured on the red carpet included: Superstar singer Karl Wolf, Host Melissa Grelo from CTV’s The Social, Tyler Stewart drummer for the Barenaked Ladies, Tyler Holmes and Shawn Lemon of the CFL Argonauts team, Chef and TV personality Shahir Massoud, all-female indie rock band The Beaches, Hip Hop Artist Nixxon, Chef and Restauranteur Michael Bonacini, Folk artist Jimmy Rankin with his wife and 2 adorable children, Canadian country music singer-songwriter Madeline Merlo, Real Housewives of Toronto Ann Kaplin Mulholland, Canadian DJ and producer Jason Parsons, Actors and Comedians Mark Little and Dr. Suresh John, Jon Harvey from rock band Monster Truck, Matt Dusk jazz musician/vocalist and many more!

VOLTA tells a spellbinding story transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and the power of the group to make that possible, celebrating freedom as a movement, the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score.

WAZ, a popular gameshow host, has lost touch with his inner self in the pursuit of fame. But as doubt sets in, WAZ is enlightened by childhood memories as he encounters FREE SPIRITS who open doors to his inner soul he has long kept shut. On his high-voltage search for meaning, will WAZ find the courage to relinquish his fame, reconnect with his true self, and shine bright?

Five riders invade the stage to deliver a jaw-dropping, fast and furious performance of nonstop acrobatics on wheels.
