About six years ago, a lucky call to the radio station started what I think will be a life long love affair. Yes, that was the day my sister won tickets to see Cirque du Soleil show. Fast forward to now and I still think the Cirque du Soleil shows are the most creative and entertaining shows ever. So I didn’t hesitate for a second when I was invited to attend a performance of Amaluna.
Overview of Amaluna
Amaluna is the fourth Cirque du Soleil show I have attended and I must say it is just as inspiriting and amazing as the first. From the beginning of the show until the end, there is none stop creativity that evokes every sense and pulls you into a whimsical story of growth, love, life, and jealousy. Amaluna was especially touching to me, as it is a love story focusing on the coming-of-age ceremony of a young girl, Miranda. Miranda lives on an enchanted island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. In the wake of a storm, Miranda finds a love interest with a ship-wrecked prince, Romeo, who has landed on the island. However, with all great love stories, Miranda and Romeo relationship will be tested.

My Challenge To You
I was a little iffy when I went to my first Cirque Du Soleil show. It was a different type of circus than I was used to but I went any way and loved it. My challenge to you is to do or go some where new. Hint: If you’re in Atlanta catch a Cirque Du Soleil show.
