Cirque Du Soleil brings its Chinese acrobatic arts show back to Green Country with Dralion, just in time for the holidays.
The shows run Dec. 12-16 at the BOK Center. Tickets are $37, $57, $77, $97 and $147, plus fees, and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, available at tulsaworld.com/bok, Arby's Box Office at the BOK Center, all Tickets.com outlets or by calling 866-7-BOKCTR.
Dralion (pronounced "Dra-LEE-on") is the fusion of 3,000-year-old Chinese circus tradition with the avant-garde approach of Cirque du Soleil, according to the show's official website, tulsaworld.com/dralion
The show's name is derived from its two emblematic creatures - the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West. The creature must combine four elements as one - fire (red), earth (ochre), water (green) and air (blue) - to take on a human form.
The show features the company's world-famous acrobats, along with clown characters and singers, gymnasts and musicians.
Performance times are 7:30 p.m. Dec. 12-14; 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 15; and 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Dec. 16.
