Overview

Cirque du Soleil: Dralion

According to the Cirque du Soleil calendar, 1999 is the year of the DRALION, a fusion of Cirque's avant-garde showmanship and the ancient Chinese acrobatic tradition. This colorful production celebrates the four natural elements -- air, fire, water, and earth -- each sporting its own color scheme. This sweeping soundtrack easily stimulates the imagination to conjure visions of flying acrobatics, swirling fabric, mysterious clowns, contortionists, breathtaking juggling, and spectacular lighting. Though Chinese performers are featured, the music is flavored with the intriguing sonic riches of Bali, the Middle East, Spain, Ireland, and Africa. Composer Violaine Corradi's music is suffused with electronic sounds, but the album also features live vocalists (singing mostly in Italian) as well as guitars, banjo, oud, accordion, horns, string orchestra, and Chinese instruments. If you've already seen the show, DRALION will help you relive the experience. If you haven't, the music will still transport you to a wondrous new world.
