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 :-)

@ginagariano & I had a tasty #budaejjigae & spicy seafood #jjambbong at @leehousefamily today. Totally satisfied my craving for spam, spice and soup. Though, could've had 3x more spam 🀀❀️ lol

  • These truffle grana padano fries with garlic aioli were like the cherry on top of an amazing menu tasting at @cactusclubcafe tonight! 😍 Our group tried port wine salmon, braised chicken tacos, a tabbouleh avocado bowl, short ribs & oxtail ravioli πŸ™πŸ» and we learned about the #CactusClub's impressive test kitchen and process for rolling out new dishes to its 30 locations across the country. Basically - it's not easy, they roll out slowly, and they don't rush anything. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Gotta love the consistency here.
