Cirque du Soleil VOLTA

Thursday, March 29 - Sunday, April 22, 

Various times


Cirque du Soleil introduces its newest Big Top production VOLTA, performing at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment. With its space-age future pop sound, VOLTA tells a spellbinding story about the freedom to choose and the thrill of blazing your own trail. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of action sports, the show weaves the adrenaline rush of acrobatics into a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score. VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and the power of the group to make that possible. It celebrates freedom as a movement.
