Cirque du Soleil VOLTA,  the first and only time to Los Angeles and Orange County!

LOS ANGELES (MNS) – Cirque du Soleil returns to Los Angeles and Orange County with VOLTA, a captivating voyage of discovery! Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports,

VOLTA explores the themes of celebrating differences and unique qualities in a world where technology often isolates people from one another rather than freeing them.

Written and directed by Bastien Alexandre, with Jean Guibert as the director of creation, VOLTA weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score, composed by Anthony Gonzalez from the international electronic group M83. VOLTA will perform under the Big Top at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles

Jan. 18 – March 8, 2020, and at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa March 18 -April 19, 2020.

The San Francisco Chronicle gave VOLTA its highest rating: ”A supercharged VOLTA soars!” The San Francisco Examiner said, “Truly mindblowing … it’s worth the price of admission.” Chris Jones in the Chicago Tribune wrote, “VOLTA is thrilling because of the acts. Period. They’re all totally fabulous.”

Catey Sullivan in the Chicago Sun Times said, “VOLTA is one of the best Cirque shows in their repertoire. A visually arresting extravaganza … a vivid reminder of the world’s impossible beauty.”

The show

Energetic, urban and contemporary, VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery that showcases never-before-seenunder the Big Top acrobatics in a visually striking world. Driven by a stirring melodic score and inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others.

The name VOLTA refers to a sudden about-face, a change in emotion or idea often used in poetry. It also speaks to the jolt of energy delivered through the show.

BMX & Street Sports

The creators of VOLTA drew inspiration from the spirit of adventure that pervades the world of BMX, street sports and acrobatics. Whether they are on a bike, hopping from rooftop to rooftop, or double dutch rope skipping, urban sports enthusiasts constantly challenge themselves and defy convention.

Sure to be a California crowd pleaser, VOLTA features a full-blown BMX park mounted on stage in front of the audience’s very eyes for the breathtaking BMX finale as riders invade the stage to deliver a jaw-dropping, fast and furious performance of nonstop acrobatics on wheels. The riders go up the jump boxes and perform air tricks before landing and leaping off the ramps again, crisscrossing and spinning their bikes in midair in a spirit of brotherhood.
