Despite EU Sanctions, Cirque Du Soleil Performs in Moscow Print E-mail

President Barack Obama's Red Lines have gotten so ludicrous that even Canucks are calling his bluffs. The Quebec-based Cirque Du Soleil defied EU sanctions against Russia by performing in a sold out tour in Moscow.

According to the Moscow Times, "Cirque Du Soleil is famous for its stunning performances, inspiring its audiences with a magical feeling that anything is possible. Dralion, their latest program to tour in Moscow, is no exception. Dralion is the Cirque du Soleil's 12th touring production. It started as a tour show under the grand chapiteau in 1999, but in 2010 it was converted to be suitable for arenas and began a tour of Eastern Europe in 2014. This region is somewhat appropriate for the themes of the show, as Dralion attempts to combine traditions and symbols of ancient cultures of the East and West, as the title of the show suggests, combining an Eastern dragon with a Western lion."

Cirque Du Soleil sought to show their support for East Meets West in a dazzling performance of acrobatics

As reported by the Moscow Times, "Dralion was performed at Luzhniki Stadium from March 6 to 16. while their current run of performances has already ended, the excellent response from Muscovites suggests a repeat tour may be in the works."

The show was so successful that Cirque Du Soleil hopes to return to Russia in the near future.
