Cirque du Soleil Onboard

Customers on the inaugural flight from Montreal to Las Vegas this morning were treated to two complimentary tickets each to Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil at ARIA Resort & Casino, valid for one year. Zarkana is a spirited voyage through an abandoned theater where an extraordinary circus comes back to life. Populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats, Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration. Zarkana is written and directed by François Girard, one of Quebec's most highly regarded creators who has earned an enviable international reputation over the years. A keen music lover, he is particularly known for the hybrid worlds he creates in which music plays a predominant role. His works are recognized for their great musicality, both in terms of sound and image.
