The famous Canadian circus company Cirque du Soleil is scheduled to visit the Middle East this month with its critically acclaimed show 'Dralion.'

The show is described as "a harmonious blend of Eastern and Western acrobatic prowess" fusing Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, with a name that mingles the Eastern dragon and the Western lion.

The show's multi-talented performers present a variety of high-calibre acts including teeterboard, ballet on lights, hoop diving, bamboo poles, juggling, single hand balancing, double trapeze, and skipping ropes.

The show will visit Dubai in UAE, then move to Lebanon, with those dates still to be scheduled.
