Cirque du Soleil are bringing Varekai to Nottingham and Sheffield Arenas next year

Cirque du Soleil has announced the first-ever UK arena tour of its signature production, Varekai.

The critically-acclaimed show, updated and featuring new acts yet to be seen in the UK, will visit the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham from March 8 to 12 next year.

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world – a world where something else is possible – a world called Varekai. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary.

Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to more than 160 million spectators in 400 cities in more than 60 countries on all continents.

Tickets are £51.40 and £61.60 on 0843 3733000, or at www.motorpointarenanottingham.com/online/cirquedusoleil

or in person from the arena box office.
