Not many modern-day world-class performances could be a better choice for a New Year’s Eve celebration than ZAIA. And when the circus is no other, but Cirque du Soleil, rest assured you are on for absolutely unforgettable night of magic, laugh and positive emotions.
The Canadian Cirque du Soleil was performing recently in Las Vegas, which is a bit far destination for Dubai’s and in general Middle Eastern party goers. However, a nearby permanent residence for the world’s most famous circus is open all-year long in Macau, near Hong Kong, at the Italian style inspired Venetian resort, also home to Asia’s biggest casino.
The current spectacular ZAIA™ production, featuring rich variety of performances by artists from all over the world is staged there every evening. Visitors can purchase tickets online in advance and collect it at the entrance upon arrival. Be sure to choose “A” sector sittings, which are not so impossibly expensive, but provide great view of the stage. Children are treated to a half price, although not really many bellow ten are seen around.
Macau is well known as the gambling hotspot of Asia. More than 30 casinos provide entertainment of all kinds to gamblers and visitors. Incredible performances by world-class singers and dancers entertain curious non-gambling visitors nonstop 24/7. Still, the city’s environment is very safe and well guarded. Youngsters bellow 18 are not allowed anywhere near the casinos. A great child-friendly hotel is the Rocks, which is conveniently located near Macau’s ferry terminal.
Around Hong Kong fast ferries and turbo jets are the most popular and cost efficient transport. Trip from Hong Kong to Macau lasts about an hour and costs nearly US $20. If you do not wish to stay in Macao, Cirque du Soleil offers a package deal with transportation cost back and fort from Hong Kong included.
The plot follows a dream of a young girl, who journeys into space on a strange, yet familiar voyage of self-discovery. As she travels, she encounters the beauty of humanity and eventually brings it back with her to share with the inhabitants of earth.
ZAIA presents the young girl’s perception of the stars and planets, space and infinity, all populated by a fantastic, literally out-of-this-world creatures. The title, ZAIA, comes from a Greek name meaning “life” and is also reminiscent of “Gaia”, the living, self-aware, spirit of earth.
ZAIA is a show that highlights dance, movement and aerial acrobatics, soaring to the farthest reaches of space and human beauty. It offers a truly memorable experience, not only suitable for celebrations and holidays, but for a life inspiration.
