Dralion by Cirque du Soleil

Author: Shaney Crawford, Issue: September 2006, Topic: Events

Cirque du Soleil (means "circus of the sun" in French) is an acrobatic performance team like no other. They have a number of shows with different themes (Delerium, Love, Dralion, La Nouba, etc.), so even if you have seen the Cirque perform before, you will probably enjoy seeing them again. The original team was from Quebec, Canada, but now they have several teams performing all over the world.

The Tokyo team performs at "Shin Big Top" in Harajuku. Their latest show is called "Dralion" and tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 26). The show runs from February 7, 2007 to May 6, 2007. The ticket site is all in Japanese, so you may need help to make the reservations if you can't read kanji.


I highly recommend going to a Cirque du Soleil performance at least once in your life. The tickets are quite expensive, but they are definitely worth it.


  • Good seats (SS): 11,5000 yen
  • Not so good seats (S): 9000 yen
  • Really not so good seats (A): 5500 yen


  • Good seats (SS): 7500 yen
  • Not so good seats (S): 5500 yen
  • Really not so good seats (A): 3500 yen

There are lots of SS seats, fewer S seats, and only a very small number of A seats.

I think the good seats will sell out quickly, so if you are interested in seeing this show, please try to buy the tickets as early as possible.
