The Cirque du Soleil will arrive to Barcelona this December with the show Dralion. It will be play from 18th to 29th December in the Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona.
The show, which has already been played in cities around the world, is a merger of 3,000 years of traditional Chinese acrobatic arts with a very own multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil.
The name of the show, Dralion, is mixing the names of two animals, the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West. Both animals are very significant in China.
In the show you will see how the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. In this way each element is represented by a color: air is blue, water is green, fire is red and earth is ocher. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
Dralion was created in 1999. The whole show is accompanied by live music. The music was composed by the Canadian composer Violaine Corradi for the Cirque Du Soleil. The lyrics are in a language invented that only Dralion known.
The music of Dralion is a fusion of sounds from East and West through the use of acoustic and electronic instruments. Appearing rhythmic and lyrical arrangements between the influences of sound you can find the Hindu melodies to sounds from Andalusia, Africa, Central Europe, and Eastern. The instruments used are: drums, violin, woodwinds, keyboards, guitars and percussion.
