July 26, 2019 - September 9, 2019 at Tysons II

Published on March 14, 2019

Cirque du Soleil returns to the Washington, DC Area with VOLTA, a captivating voyage of discovery! Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA explores the themes of celebrating differences and unique qualities in a world where technology often isolates people from one another rather than freeing them. Written and directed by Bastien Alexandre, with Jean Guibert as the director of creation, VOLTA weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score, composed by Anthony Gonzalez from the international electronic group M83. VOLTA will perform under the Big Top at Tysons II in Tysons, Virginia July 26, 2019—September 9, 2019.

Tickets (starting at $49) for the general public will be available for purchase beginning March 1, 2019 by visiting or calling 1-877-9CIRQUE (1-877-924-7783). To better suit the needs of families, VOLTA’s show schedule has been tailored with weekly showtimes beginning at 7:30PM and weekend matinees as early as 12:30PM. Discover our Hennessy Black VIP Experience package which includes a cocktail reception with open bar and hors d’oeuvres inspired by the show, access to the best seats for greater comfort, complimentary parking and more!

Energetic, urban and contemporary, VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery that showcases never-before-seen under the Big Top acrobatics in a visually striking world. Driven by a stirring melodic score and inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others.

The name VOLTA refers to a sudden about-face, a change in emotion or idea often used in poetry. It also speaks to the jolt of energy delivered through the show.
