Many years ago Dave surprised me for my birthday with tickets to Cirque du Soleil when they were here in Cleveland. It was our first and only Cirque show, but I’ve been hooked ever since.

I love the amazing acrobatics and costumes and I’m always blown away whenever I think about that show or catch it on television. That’s why I’m really excited to be sent tickets to review Cirque du Soleil Dralion and to offer the ticket giveaway below. The honest opinions are our own and I am thrilled that this show is coming to Cleveland! The show will be at the Wolstein Center from Wednesday, April 4th – Sunday, April 8th.

Dralion’s name is derived from the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the west. The inspiration for the show is the quest for harmony between humans and nature.
