Taking its inspiration and setting from all-time cinematic box office record holder Avatar, TORUK – The First Flight transports you to James Cameron’s spectacular alien world of Pandora in a visually stunning live display.
A triumphant cinematic score backs puppetry, stunning stagecraft and cutting-edge visuals, as Cirque du Soleil applies its renowned signature style to this lushly realised imaginary world, uniting two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination.
Populated by unforgettable characters and narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” the show takes the form of a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film.
