    Theater: Radio City Music Hall / 1260 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY, 10020

    Synopsis: 

    Cirque du Soleil's new acrobatic spectacle, Zarkana is written and directed by acclaimed film and theatre director François Girard.

    Zarkana is a fantastically bizarre world where we follow the adventures of Zark, a magician who has lost his love and, with her, his powers. As he cries and begs for her return he is plunged into a world inhabited by surreal creatures.

    The diverse cast of 71 international artists transports the audience into a fantastical and suspenseful world, blurring the boundaries between the real and imaginary.

    The name Zarkana is a fusion of the words "bizarre" and "arcana" (arcana means "mystery" or "secret"). The twisted fictional world of Zarkana is an elusive destination that is fantastic yet bizarre. The name refers to the irresistibly odd and delightfully strange aura of this place and its inhabitants.

    Radio City Is Transformed Into a Cirque Tent

    Charles Isherwood

    June 29, 2011: The hearty-voiced fellow in the cherry-red top hat and matching silk cape obviously has a lot on his mind. Sweeping across the football-field stage of Radio City Music Hall as the ring master of “Zarkana,” the latest Cirque du Soleil spectacular, he sings incessantly of an absent love, as if she could only be conjured by bombastic synthesizer-rich balladeering, a whole iPod playlist of Celine Dion songs delivered one after another.
