After a long wait, Verakai and I have finally met, LOL! The show was as expected, breathtaking and world-class. Every penny spent is worthy of the grand performance I have witnessed that showcased the extraordinary skills and talents of the performers, the colorful and captivating costumes worn, the awesome sound system and the huge tent that was built for the event.
Icarus is the main character of Varekai, who falls to the ground, breaking his legs as he does. He is suddenly in a strange, new world full of creatures he has never seen before. "Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered." Assisted by the strange and quirky La Vigie, he works on regaining his strength and finding his way, his desire being to fly again. While on the ground, he meets The Betrothed, an underground, insect-like creature who he falls in love with. The two have barely met when she is kidnapped. Having already lost his love, Icarus must also find a way to see her again and conquer the obstacles in his path, continuing his quest through Varekai. (Source)

The only photo I have as a souvenir because I was reprimanded by an usherette after taking it. I was very tempted to use my cell phone's camera but was also anxious that the staff might kick me out of the tent this time.
