Cirque du Soleil is coming to Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City for seven performances.

From Aug. 29 through Sept. 2, fans of the acrobatic arts can see Dralion, a theme that features the bond between humans and nature. The word Dralion is made up of two emblematic creatures in the show: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the west.

With a focus on bringing powerful colors to the forefront, the show is sure to deliver improbable acrobatic stunts and tricks that must be seen in person to believe.

Tickets for the shows are available online now for Cirque Club members through May 17. Go to for more information.

Starting Friday, May 18, tickets go on sale to the general public at or for $35, $75, $95 and $145.
