Written and directed by Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo creator Daniele Finzi Pasca, La Verità is a theatrical homage to the life and work of surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. Ideas and images collide in a decadent Vaudeville channeling of Dalí’s vision, as acrobats play instruments, sing, juggle, contort, clown, and can-can amongst unfurling flowers, distorting shadows, ladders suspended in empty space, impossible balances, dismantled corpses, blindfolds, feathers and sequins. For the first time since its 1944 appearance at New York’s Metropolitan Opera, a gigantic original hand-painted backdrop by Dalí is featured on stage.
Starting at $10
