TORUK – The First Flight is a brand new Cirque du Soleil live experience inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR. The story of TORUK takes place thousands of years before the movie AVATAR and before any humans visited Pandora. Lead by an actual Storyteller character, the show will follow three young adults – Ralu, Entu, and Tsyal – and the first flight of the Toruk, the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. TORUK – The First Flight will be performed at CenturyLink Center in Bossier City at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 12-14. For more information or to purchase tickets to the Bossier City performances, click here.
As anyone who saw the Bossier City performance of Cirque du Soleil’s Varekai tour will attest, these shows are breathtakingly beautiful and filled with awe-inspiring performances from the cast. There really isn’t a performing arts experience that compares to the Cirque du Soleil experience.
