Cirque du Soleil- Wintuk Tickets
Cirque du Soleil's Wintuk is a young boy's adventure into an imaginary world to bring the elusive snow back to his city. It is a ninety minute show seasonally played at New York's WaMu Theater at the Madison Square Garden entertainment complex. Created by the Canadian circus wonderment Cirque du Soleil four years ago, it enters its last season of entertainment in November.
In this tale of winter adventure, the young boy, Jamie, finds himself eagerly awaiting the arrival of snow in his city. The cold has set in but there is no sign of snow. So he takes it upon himself to bring the snow back to where it belongs. During his quest he meets a variety of characters like acrobats, dancers, talking lampposts and giant dogs. He teams up with a female Shaman with magical powers, the girl he falls madly in love with and a shy young man named Wimpy who is trying to find his courage. They come to a place which an imaginary arctic world without sunlight called Wintuk. Jamie and his friends encounter giant ice creatures known as the People of the North. When the sunlight finally reappears in Wintuk, Jamie and his friends are sent back to their home on a huge flying crane. This initiates a snow storm causing snow to start falling once again in Jamie's city.
It consists of eleven acts which are a striking and vivid mix of circus skills and street entertainment, signature of the Cirque du Soleil brand. This is a Canadian company founded by Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier, two former street performers, in 1984. Its name is French for 'Circus of the Sun'. It embodies the contemporary circus with its dramatic, character-oriented approach and the fact that no real performing animals are used. Each of its shows is an amalgamation of circus techniques from various parts of the world, has its own storyline, music and central theme. With its unique style, the company gained a lot of success in the 90s and went global with shows in almost all the continents.
This unique style is evident in Wintuk which has a cast of 50 performers. Written and directed by Richard Blackburn, the show first premiered in New York in November, 2007. Being a Cirque du Soleil's production it was understood that the show would pull audience to the theatres. However, the adventurous tale has not been able to enthrall the audiences as the company's other productions like Cirque du Soleil Fire Within (in 2003) and three Primetime Emmy Awards winner Dralion (in 2001) have done. Despite this, it has its individual moments of beauty and skill which include the rag-doll act of contortionist Audrone Pavloviciene, the beautiful hoop routine of Elena Lev, and the synchronized aerialism of Kylee Maupoux and Anke van Engelshoven; not so athletic, but equally entertaining, are the show's giant ice-cube-monster puppets. Its great set designs, lighting and music are a plus. There have been mixed reviews on the standard of acting in the show. This is because the cast usually keeps changing from season to season.
However, the latest response of the audience is yet to be determined as the season begins in over two weeks' time. Nevertheless, the playing of Wintuk in winter coincides with the holiday season just beginning. As it is aimed directly at children and families, the story and its theme clearly relate to the winter season and children's eagerness to see the snow fall. On top of that, it is being put up by Cirque du Soleil in their usual flare of whimsy and element of surprise. Though the show is going to have its last season this winter, Cirque du Soleil's Wintuk tickets are going to bring the audience quite an entertainment in the cold weather.
