Cirque du Solei Coming to Cleveland

On April 4, 2012 through April 7, 2012 Cirque du Solei with its production Dralion will be in Cleveland at the Wolstein Center. Discount tickets are available when you mention “OCA Cleveland” when speaking with sales associate Allyson Boal at 216.687.5579. The prices are:

Dralion is Cirque du Solei’s newest production. Itis the fusion of ancient Chinese circus traditions and the avant-garde style of Cirque du Soleil. The name Dralion (pronounced “Drah-lee-on”) is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East, and the lion, representing the West. Dralion derives much of its inspiration from Eastern philosophy with its perpetual quest for harmony between humankind and nature.
