(Oaks, PA, July 13th, 2018) – Cirque du Soleil Premiered VOLTA last night, its first ever Big Top show visiting Oaks, PA. The circus production company also took the occasion of the special event to announce that VOLTA would be presented for an extended stay next to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center until August 19th. With this new creation, the world’s entertainment leader is once again pushing the boundaries of circus arts by integrating several street sports disciplines as well as electronic music created by international composer and musical director Anthony Gonzalez, from renowned group M83.

Among the various guests present at the sold-out event were Debbi Calton, radio host at WMGK-FM and Cappucchino, on-air host at WUSL-FM Power 99.



Tickets are available by visiting cirquedusoleil.com/volta or calling 1-877-9CIRQUE (1-877-924-7783). Tickets are available starting at $49. All parking for the event is free.



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. Using the rise of the celebrity culture and reality TV as a subtext, VOLTA teaches us that the path to fame is not necessarily the path to freedom.



The stunning costumes of VOLTA have been designed by Zaldy Goco, famous for his work with Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefany and for TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
