Dodger Stadium has seen its share of acrobatic feats, but they are usually performed by baseball players. That will change when Cirque du Soleil sets up its big top in Chavez Ravine this winter to present its latest extravaganza – KURIOS.
The show comes packed with the usual Cirque circus tricks and acrobatic feats, but it also has a story that will spark your curiosity. A 19th century inventor known as “the Seeker” has created a large machine with magical powers that draw the audience into a whimsical world. The stage design has a cool steampunk quality which, combined with the troupe’s nimble choreography, primes the audience to gasp with amazement and revel in a sense of wonder.
The critically acclaimed Kurios gears up for Los Angeles events after its stay at the OC Fairgrounds, where OC Weekly’s Scott Feinblatt proclaimed it, “the best vehicle yet seen in a Cirque du Soleil show.” So if you haven’t seen it yet, now is your chance, Los Angeles.
Performances are at 8 p.m. Tues.-Fri., 4:30 and 8 p.m. Sat. and 1 and 5 p.m. Sun. (with some exceptions) Dec. 10 through Feb. 7 (no shows Dec. 25 or Jan. 1). Tickets are $50-$165. Learn more at www.cirquedusoleil.com/kurios.
