Win a Pair of Tickets to Cirque du Soleil's 'Dralion'!

Want to win two tickets valued at $170 to "Dralion"? Just leave a comment.

Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that Dralion will be performing in San Diego from Nov. 15-18 at Valley View Casino Center. Fusing the 3,000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion (pronounced “Dra-lee-on”) draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show’s name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

In Dralion, the four elements that govern the natural order take on a human form. Thus embodied, each element is represented by its own evocative colour: air is blue; water is green; fire is red; earth is ochre. In the world of Dralion, cultures blend, Man and Nature are one, and balance is achieved.

Patch readers have a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 7:30 p.m. show on Thursday, Nov. 15. All you need to do is leave a comment telling us why you want the tickets. A winner will be selected at random. All comments must be in by 6 p.m. PST on Thursday, Nov. 8. The winner will be announced 8 a.m. PST on Friday, Nov. 9.

Must be a legal resident of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia who are 18 and older. Winner will be selected in a random drawing. The winner will receive two tickets to see Cirque du Soleil's Dralion on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. PST. Approximate retail value of tickets: $170.

My husband and I would love to go! We've been working so hard in the last few days and we deserve a night out. We have never seen any Cirque du Soleil performances, so this would be our first. Have I mentioned how much I like your publication? (LOL)

I would greatly appreciate the tickets to Dralion since my funds are very limited as many other people. My godchild would love to go and see the acrobatics since she is a gymnast. This would give her a renewed interest in athletics!

Many Many years ago, Cirque du Soleil's was in the sand in Santa Monica, CA. just set up next to the Santa Monica very long Pier (in the sand). It was fabulous and the "show". I lived in Santa Monica at the time and had a hard, HARD to get to tickets. I have 3 children at the time and they cryed and cryed. They are in their 40's now. Now I have grandchildren (twins) and 6 years old. Thet would LOVE this show.

The name Dralion derives from the Dragon and the Lion. I was born in the year of the Dragon, and I'm a Leo. So this is the perfect show for me!

After having bad luck all year, a co worker said, 'Well at least bad luck is better than having no luck at all!' ???? . I hope I'm lucky enough to win the Dralion tickets, it will be a spectacular evening to round up 2012!

I cannot afford it! Right after graduating from CSU San Marcos, I became heavily involved with AmeriCorps "getting things done" at schools and other non-profit organizations. I live day by day on a stipend and work over 55 hours a week, as hard as the rest of the contestants. We all deserve it but there is only one winner right? I guess I am also testing my luck Please randomly pick me! :) garcia.margarita88@gmail.com
