Cirque du Soleil is returning to the Washington DC area with VOLTA, a show that that's fueled by the culture of street sports and inspired by the spirit of adventure. This visually striking show weaves acrobatics and a stirring melodic score to celebrate the unique qualities we each have.

VOLTA follows the story of Waz, a game show contestant, as he enters the show in search of fame thinking it will bring him love and acceptance from others. But he finds that fame is perhaps not the answer.

Discover if Waz reconnects with his true self as he and the other characters endure fast and furious performances of jaw-dropping BMX; stunning acrobatics on a giant, pivoting ladder; hip-hop dancers tumbling and skipping rope; and daring acrobatics on unicycles.

VOLTA is about finding yourself, unveiling your personal powers, and transformation. It's about being true to yourself, fulfilling your true potential, and recognizing your own power to make it possible. VOLTA is Cirque du Soleil's 41st original production since 1984, and its 18th show presented under the Big Top.

Cirque du Soleil began as a group of 20 street performers in 1984 and has since brought wonder and delight to more than 180 million spectators in more than 400 cities in over 60 countries on six continents! Their mission is to invoke the imagination, provoke the senses, and evoke the emotions of people around the world.
