Cirque du Soleil presents TORUK- The First Flight inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR
Kansas City, MO (April 29, 2015) – The new Cirque du Soleil touring show inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flight, will be presented at Sprint Center on April 1-3, 2016, as part of a global tour in arenas around the world starting November 2015.
TORUK – The First Flight, inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, a live experience by Cirque du Soleil®, envisions a world beyond imagination set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film. The word Toruk, in the Na’vi language, refers to the great leonopteryx, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Central in Na’vi lore and culture, this fascinating creature is crucial to the Na’vi clans’ sense of destiny and interconnectedness – and is about to be ridden for the very first time by a Na’vi.
Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, May 8 at 10a.m. at www.SprintCenter.com, Sprint Center Box Office or charge-by-phone at 888.929.7849. A presale exclusively for Cirque Club members begins on April 30 and a venue presale will take place beginning May 4.
