The Bryce Jordan Center announced the presentation of six performances of Cirque du Soleil’s “Dralion” from Oct. 6 to 12. After 15 years performing around the world, “Dralion” will make its finale curtain call in January.

Fusing the 3,000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, “Dralion” draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its neverending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

Advance tickets for “Dralion” are available online to Cirque Club members through July 17. Cirque Club membership is free and benefits includes access to advance tickets, special offers and exclusive behind the scenes information. To join, go to www.cirqueclub.com.
