Cirque du Soleil’s VOLTA is an exciting voyage into both a visually striking world and a captivating dance between light and sound. Energetic, urban and contemporary, VOLTA is inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to
make it possible. The creators of VOLTA drew inspiration from the spirit of adventure that pervades the world of BMX, street sports and acrobatics. The highly disciplined performers in the show are awe-inspiring, whether they are on a bike, hopping from rooftop to rooftop, or double dutch rope skipping.
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. The stunning costumes of VOLTA have been designed by Zaldy Goco, famous for his work with Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and for TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
