Loosely inspired by William Shakespeare's "The Tempest," "Amaluna"'s epic love story takes place on a mysterious, lush island ruled by goddesses, and offers another installment of Cirque's famous and beloved "nouveau cirque" style, with a strong central storyline told by amazing acrobatic performers, set to continuous live music. "Amaluna" runs Nov. 3, 2019 - Jan. 12, 2020 under the Big Top at Oracle Park's Lot A.
