Cirque du Soleil Returns to Tysons With ‘VOLTA’ Tonight

The acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil is back in Tysons with “VOLTA” — a sports-themed show that starts tonight (July 25) at the “big top” pavilion.

Unlike traditional Cirque du Soleil shows, “VOLTA” features sports athletes in the cast for the urban sports-inspired show and follows a more streamlined plot, Steven Ross, the show’s senior publicist, told Tysons Reporter.

The contemporary “VOLTA” plot focuses on self-empowerment and transformation while incorporating bicycles and ballerinas, Ross said.

More from Cirque du Soleil about the show:

Waz is a gameshow contestant that has lost touch with himself. He’s ashamed of who he is because of his difference. Follow him as he enters the show in search of fame, thinking that this will bring him love and acceptance from others. What he will find is something else: that fame is not the answer.

If fame doesn’t provide freedom and acceptance, then what does? Will Waz reconnect with his true self — and stand up for all that makes him truly unique? Will he realize that his difference is what makes him extraordinary?

The circus set up tents recently between Tysons Galleria and the Tysons Corner Metro station — the same location the troupe used last year.

The show runs from July 25-Sept 29. Tickets start at $49 and go up to $495 for behind-the-scenes tickets, which include backstage tours.

He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead.
