Death-defying acrobatics, provocative dance, and subtle physical humor will tickle your senses in Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion—a combination of dragon and lion inspired by Eastern philosophy and the spiritual quest for balance between man and nature. The show anthropomorphizes the four elements that govern the natural order of life: air, water, fire, and earth, blending color and culture in a high-flying spectacle designed to evoke “oohs” and “aahs” from audience members of all ages.

Through 10/26. $42-142, times vary. John Paul Jones Arena, 295 Massie Rd. 243-4960.
