Giveaway: Opening Night Tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s TORUK The First Flight (Edmonton)

Cirque du Soleil TORUK

Mike and I have been to a few Cirque du Soleil shows over the years and we always come away from them feeling just in awe. 

The artistry, the incredible stunts, the beautiful and elaborate sets, costumes, make up, music, storytelling – there hasn’t been a Cirque show we’ve gone to that didn’t amaze us. 

That’s why I’m so excited to see the upcoming Cirque du Soleil’s TORUK: The First Flight in the new Rogers Place this December!

TORUK comes to Edmonton Dec. 22-26, 2016 (yay, Christmastime!) 

This touring Cirque show is inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar, and brings you into the world of Pandora. The experience is described as a “living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistance with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things.” TORUK is set thousands of years before the events of the Avatar movie (before any humans set foot on Pandora). 

Mike and I will be going for opening night but I’m also giving away a pair of tickets so you can experience the show on opening night too. It’s like an early Christmas gift!

Both of us have been fascinated by the Cirque du Soleil for a long time now and this seems like an opportunity as good as any. It’s winter time and what better way than the Cirque to be inside (Rogers Place) and watch a spectacle. So stoked the troupe is in Edmonton :-)

  • My favourite appetizer at the new @thebutternuttree is their Grilled Bannock topped with wild mushrooms, berries, pumpkin seeds and "winged kelp." πŸ€— It was delicious! The Broccoli with crispy pork belly and leek ash coated duck egg (check my IG Story for #yolkporn!) was also excellent. Beautiful plates and beautiful views at this restaurant too (high ceiling windows all over). We had a lovely dinner last night at the #yegmedia event in a private room with #yegfood friends! Pricing wise- appetizers at #TheButternutTree are $13-$19, entrees are $28-$44, so it would make for a bit pricier a night out but you'll find a lot of unique ingredients here. You can tell lots of care is going into these dishes. Congrats on your opening Chef Downey & team! And thanks @bonafidemediapr for inviting us to check it out. #MeetatTBT ☺️

  • My favourite person to get my #yegseglegs with! πŸ‘«@mikethyking & I killed it (if I do say so myself 😌) on @rivervalleyadventureyeg's segways yesterday while filming for @travelalberta's "Edmonton on Wheels" promo video! πŸ’• I actually wish I could segway as a primary means of transportation, it's so fun/easy (and you can end up going so fast it's thrilling! πŸ’¨)

  • Sunday Funday! πŸ’• Today we went on the 15-passenger @urbanpedaltours bike through @oldstrathcona with @travelalberta! We stopped at @elcortezyeg (for chips, salsa & guac 😍), @maltandmortar, and @situationbeer before renting segways & bikes from @rivervalleyadventureyeg! It was a pretty wicked day exploring Edmonton on wheels. I can't wait to see the video (not airing until next spring lol). I LOVE segways!! #yegseglegs πŸ€— See more from the day in my Insta Stories!
