About the Show
Zarkana is an acrobatic spectacle that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical virtuosity rubs shoulders with the bizarre. Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a slightly twisted fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to festivity and love regained. The diverse cast transports the audience into a fantastical and suspenseful world, blurring the boundaries between the real and imaginary.
Tickets range from $59 to $125 with a limited number of prime and premium tickets available. To purchase tickets, please visit cirquedusoleil.com/zarkana or ticketmaster.com or call 1-866-858-0008.
