Starts Wednesday, Jan. 21 in Tulsa/Starts Wednesday, Jan. 28 in OKC
The supreme grace, athleticism and artistry of Cirque du Soleil returns to Tulsa and Oklahoma City in 2015 with an old story in contemporary appeal. Varekai opens at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave., in Tulsa on Wednesday, Jan. 21. Set in a magical forest “at the edge of time,” Varekai explores possibility and the extraordinary as a young man named Icarus flies into a series of adventures translated through playful, acrobatic feats, dance and art. As a tribute to the freewheeling, traditional traveling circus, Varekai is a perfect vehicle for touring – the production continues through Sunday, Jan. 25, for seven performances in Tulsa before it opens at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave., in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Jan. 28. It closes its Oklahoma City run on Sunday, Feb. 1. Tickets to the Tulsa showings are $42-$147 at www.bokcenter.com, while admission to Varekai in Oklahoma City are $35-$100 (fees may apply) at www.chesapeakearena.com.
