Have I got a great giveaway for my fellow Edmontonians!

The new Cirque du Soleil TORUK – The First Flight, is going to be presented at Rogers Place from December 22-26, and I have TWO TICKETS TO GIVEAWAY FOR OPENING NIGHT!

TORUK- The First Flight is inspired by the James Cameron’s movie, Avatar. It transports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting that only Cirque Du Soleil can do. Take a look!


Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” TORUK – The First Flight is a story that takes place thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora. I’m so excited to see this show, as I haven’t seen a live Cirque du Soleil performance in over 10 years.

The other cool thing about TORUK-The First Flight, is that Cirque du Soleil will be launching a first-of-its-kind app for TORUK – The First Flight! The app will enhance the overall show experience and enable audience members to be a part of the action before, during and after the performance.  Talk about being innovative!  The app can be downloaded from HERE.

Follow TORUK  Facebook and on Twitter with #TORUK #Avatar

Ok, so who wants to win tickets to see the show on Thursday, Dec.22  at 7:30 pm? Just enter using the easy Rafflecopter Widget below. Remember, you have to live in and around #YEG to enter! The giveaway ends Dec.18th, so that I have enough time to pick and email the winner.
