Dahl's story is a children's literature favorite, and this 90-minute adaptation brings a careful balance of spooky charm and kid-friendly humor.

Cirque du Soleil - Varekai Opens Jul 22  
Patriot Center Cirque du Soleil - Varekai
 
Cirque du Soleil's Varekai whisks you away to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A solitary young man parachutes into a magic forest, where he meets fantastic creatures and embarks on an adventure full of extraordinary and whimsical experiences. In the Romany language -- the language of the Gypsies -- "varekai" means "wherever," and this fantastic journey pays tribute to the wandering spirits who began the circus tradition, roaming entertainers whose travels might take them anywhere. As the show's hero explores the forest, you'll travel with him to witness high-flying aerial acts, astounding acrobatics, hilarious clowns and the Icarian games: an ancient circus art that presents a thrilling display of human juggling as the performers catapult through the air and make unbelievable landings on their partners. This fantastical adventure spectacle takes place at the Patriot Center.
