"We are excited to bring the distinct magic of Cirque Dreams to our Northern California," said Don McCoy park president. "This beautifully executed show truly elevates the entertainment value for our guests who can expect an electrifying experience."
This dynamic visual spectacle showcases astounding physical prowess as the performers bring together a series of high-flying stunts and daring aerial acts above water. In the water, dolphins will emulate some of the artistry in their own way, as marine mammal trainers guide them through a series of show-stopping behaviors.
The show is created, produced and directed by acclaimed Broadway Director and Cirque Dreams founder Neil Goldberg and was designed to celebrate "aquatical" strength of both the popular marine mammals and the hand-picked international cast, who hail from nine countries.
"Our goal was to complement the personalities of the dolphins and performers through playfulness, extraordinary feats, synchronicity and unparalleled showmanship," said Goldberg. "Cirque Dreams Splashtastic will be one of those unique and memorable entertainment attractions rarely experienced."
The partnership with theatrical visionary Goldberg and his acclaimed Cirque Dreams entertainment brand represented an opportunity to bring a Broadway-caliber production to the park for the enjoyment of audiences of all ages.
Cirque Dreams Splashtastic – the Most Amazing Show Above H2O, the all-new show that will amaze in the air, over water and throughout the Dolphin Harbor Theater, is included with park admission and will run two shows daily until August 11, 2013.
