Raise your hand if you’ve ever been to Las Vegas. Keep them raised if you’ve been to Vegas AND been lucky enough to catch a show from Cirque du Soleil. Color me jealous! While I’ve been to Sin City a handful of times, sadly a live Cirque show is still on my bucket list. But not for long! The Farewell Tour of the long-running Cirque du Soleil, Dralion will be flying into the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in November! Forgive the excessive exclamations, but I am excited!
Let’s get right to the details. There are six shows, running from November 5-9.

Here’s how Cirque describes the show:
Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.
In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.
The Coliseum is located at 4000 Parnell Avenue in Fort Wayne. Don’t forget parking! $5 for the main lot and $8 for the preferred lot.
See you at the show!
