Experience the Magic of Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai!

Disclosure: I was provided for tickets to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Wednesday night my family and I had the awesome privilege to attend Cirque Du Soleil’s Varekai in Tampa at Amalie Arena. We had never been to a Cirque Du Soleil show before so we did not know what to expect. We were blown away by the performance and it was beyond amazing! We all sat on the edge of our seats the entire evening!

Tampa area readers, Varekai is at Amalie Arena for the next several days so you still have time to get tickets and experience this magic for yourself! You will not be disappointed! The performers are amazing and it takes such dedication and hard work to put on such a remarkable show!

What is the remarkable show Varekai all about? Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world – a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

The story of Varekai begins as Icarus, a solitary young man, falls from the sky and lands in a lush, wonderous world called Varekai. 

Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest – a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures – Icarus takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. At the edge of time, in a place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind. 

The word Varekai (pronounced ver•ay•’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers.  Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai
