Le Cirque Volé’s flying spectacle to entertain at Fly Palmy Arena

Two of The Dust Palace’s world-class aerial acrobats set to perform in Palmerston North

An evening of pure revelry, featuring fearless aerial acrobats, aerial dance, spectacular circus skills and side-splitting comedy by world-class athletes and performers is set to enthral thousands when Le Cirque Volé fills the Fly Palmy Arena on 28 July.

The stunning and sophisticated cirque/musical experience is to be accompanied by international award-winning concert pianist Flavio Villani. The event has been described as a beautiful and classy spectacle.

John Lynch PNCC Venues and Events Manager is excited to host the unique event in the city. “Le Cirque Volé is an excellent event for Palmerston North, as it’s a world-class spectacle that caters to all ages. This production is being created specifically for our venue and our regional audience.”

The Dust Palace, producers of Le Cirque Volé, have toured throughout the world including Canada and Australia. Their 90 minute performance is expected to challenge and engage diverse audiences as well as providing mind-blowing entertainment. There will also be an opportunity for corporate hospitality packages.

“We expect that the calibre of this production will attract an audience from throughout the wider region,” says Mr Lynch. “This will be a spectacular night of entertainment that will create long-lasting memories and as a venue we are delighted to be able to host such a unique event.”

Fly Palmy Arena’s new retractable seating will be installed in time to increase the capacity of Fly Palmy Arena to over 3,000 seats.

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)
