A&E Spotlight 

Cirque du Soleil

Come see a circus that rivals Barnum & Bailey's as the greatest show on Earth. Beginning March 13, the world-renowned Cirque du Soleil will raise its trademark blue-and-yellow Grand Chapiteau in Raleigh's Triangle Town Center for its first-ever engagement in Raleigh. Cirque will perform its acclaimed Dralion, "a celebration of life and the four elements that maintain the natural order: air, water, fire and earth." Within the confines of an elaborate, futuristic set, artists perform amazing acrobatic and lyrical stunts to a musical score that fuses sounds from all around the world. Featuring more than 55 artists from 10 countries (including a house troupe of 37 Chinese acrobats) Dralion promises to both astound and entrance audiences. March 13-April 5: Tuesday & Wednesday 8 p.m.; Thursday-Saturday, 4 & 8 p.m.; Sunday 1 & 5 p.m. cirquedusoleil.com or (800) 678-5440. $45-$65, $32.50-$45, children, $58.50-$40.50 students and seniors, weekdays at 4 p.m.
