The acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil is scheduled to return to Tysons with the show “Volta” — an extreme sports-themed program with bicycle, unicycle, and rope skipping tricks.
The circus is planned to open up inside a “big top” pavilion near the Tysons Galleria mall, the same location the troupe used when they visited Tysons last year.
The show is scheduled to run from July 26 through Sept. 8. Tickets range from $49 on the far exterior of the semi-circular arena to $250 “VIP” tickets close to the stage. Behind-the-scenes tickets with backstage tours are available for $495.
Prices on the tickets are subject to change as the event draws closer.
The circular arena is designed to visible from every angle for the audience. The ticketing information warns that poles holding up the tent could block some portions of the stage, but the main action will be visible from all seats.
Merchandise, like souvenir programs, apparel and accessories will also be available for purchase at the show.
The show’s description includes a warning that the flashing lights may cause difficulties for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
