A new Cirque du Soleil show, inspired by James Cameron’s movie Avatar, is coming to Dubai in January for a two-week run. 

Toruk – The First Flight, set in the fictional world of Pandora, is described as a “riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score”. 

The immersive experience, which will be narrated by one of the chatracters, depicts a tale set thousands of years before the events of the Avatar film, with a natural catastrophe threatening to destroy many sacred elements of the Na’vi’s world.

The show will be presented at Dubai World Trade Centre from Thursday January 4 to Wednesday January 17.

Tickets will be available on pre-sale for pre-registered customers and Cirque Club members on Tuesday October 17 at 11am – general sale will start on Friday October 20 at 11am. Prices start from AED295, and range up to AED2,495. Tickets are available from www.tixbox.com.
