ZAGREB, November 5, 2018 – Canada’s Cirque du Soleil and the film “Avatar” have joined forces for a multisensory spectacle called “Toruk – The First Flight”, which will be performed in Zagreb on December 7-9.

“Toruk – The First Flight”, which premiered in 2015, has been seen by almost 1.5 million people and performed over 350 times in some 50 cities around the world. It was inspired by James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster “Avatar”.

“Installations such as the impressive 13-metre-high Dream Catcher, a 20-square metre kite, Toruk, with a 12-metre wing span, a six-legged mythical creature, numerous costumes, puppets, visual effects and amazing animation will certainly leave Croatian audiences breathless too,” according to an announcement of the two-hour performance.

The story takes the audience back 3,000 years before the events depicted in “Avatar”, bringing to life on stage the mythical world of Pandora and the Na’vi people.

According to the show’s description on the Cirque du Soleil’s website, “in a stunning light inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar, Cirque du Soleil transports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting.”

Cirque du Soleil productions have been seen by more than 180 million people in over 420 cities on all six continents. The company has sold more than 10 million tickets and employs nearly 4,000 people, including 1,300 performers from 50 countries.
