To the Tents!
Another summer, another Cirque du Soleil spectacular topping our list of must-see shows.
Amaluna– a name that refers to “mother” and “moon” – will sweep us away to a mysterious island governed by goddesses and ruled by cycles of the moon. And did we mention that 70 percent of the cast and 100 percent of the band is made up of women? #girlpower
Because sitting in the chapiteau is a quintessentially Montreal moment we savor every chance we get, we’re grabbing tickets (from $43.50), stat.
The show runs until July 15 before heading to the Port of Quebec, Toronto and Vancouver. —Christine Laroche
