"La Verità delights through performances tinged with sheer beauty and offbeat humor. Like a daydream…the acts are mesmerizingly beautiful." —Le Journal de Montréal
Directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, (Rain by Cirque Éloize, Donka, Cirque du Soleil's Corteo), La Verità is a thrilling cirque-style tribute to a backdrop painted by the surrealist artist Salvador Dali. Ideas and images collide in this decadent Vaudeville-inspired spectacle: acrobats play instruments, sing, juggle, contort, and can-can among unfurling flowers, distorting shadows, ladders suspended in empty space, blindfolds, feathers, and sequins. Art lovers will marvel at Dali's gigantic, hand-painted backdrop onstage for the first time since its creation for the Metropolitan Opera in 1944!
