Cirque du Soleil Returns to Tysons II, September 6th

There's no shortage of things to do in the nation's capital, but if I had only one show to see (and one show only) it would be Cirque du Soleil. Lucky for me (and you) it returns next week after a year-long absence. Cirque du Soleil ECHO opens Wednesday night, September 6th under the Big Tent at Tysons II, and runs through October 22nd.

ECHO has a runtime of just over two hours, including a 25-minute intermission. Click here to purchase tickets, and here to get the VIP Experience.

From our friends at Cirque du Soleil...

What is Cirque du Soleil ECHO about?
With a tale about evolution as well as the symbiotic relationships that our lives depend on, Cirque du Soleil adds fresh and unexpected turns to its Big Top magic. A spectacular performance combining poetry, stagecraft, daring acrobatics, and technology explores the delicate balance between people, animals, and the world we all share. Our main female heroine Future and our characters discover that their choices have the potential to influence the world as they progress through the stages of evolution. They are motivated to work together to piece the planet we all wish to live on. Cirque du Soleil ECHO allows the audience to join in a world of color, inspired by the youth's optimism, the inventive power, and the value of empathy.
