Yesterday on the Pepsi Center grounds, Cirque Du Soleil raised its blue and yellow Big Top tent in advance of its latest show, Amaluna, which debuts on July 18.
The Big Top is nineteen meters high and has a diameter of 51 meters. It will be secured to the ground with 550 pegs. Once it is completely set up on the inside and outside -- a process that takes eight days -- the tent will be able to seat more than 2,600 people complete with a plush VIP section and air conditioning.
