There was a serious injury during the Aerial Straps act in Tampa and the show was canceled.

It is with immense sadness that I share the aerial artist, Yann Arnaud, has died as a result of his injuries.

This is devastating, what a loss of light in the world and on the stage. M thoughts are with his family, the show, and the company.

A very sad day for the Cirque family and the circus community as a whole. His last instagram post is heartbreaking.

@Semisubtle I fucking know. Immediately after I heard the news I checked Instagram and saw his post. It was one of the most surreal, heartbreaking things I've ever read. Nothing but love to the entire Cirque family right now.

It's really awful. It was maybe only their 2nd or 3rd time doing the straps act live...

NJ premiere postponed for now: http://www.nj.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2018/03/cirque_du_soleil_postp...

I have tickets for the 14th which is one of the affected dates, but I haven't been contacted about rescheduling/refunding just yet. I'm relieved the Volta family will have additional time to mourn and recuperate.

The trampo wall is double sided and is pulled out to center stage and rotates so you can see the performers jumping through from one side ot another.

Cyr wheel seems so repetitive to me. Usually, in most shows, they end up putting Cyr as a rotation act until they find a solution to that moment of the show. However, as happened in Amaluna, Cyr Wheel was meant to be just a rotation act and ended up getting fixed.

When the concept came back in the beginning, I believed that they would already put the Cyr Wheel on the show, but expected something in this context with leds, coming in according to the proposal of the show. Like that > https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hb8ipPl7iLs

If you’re wondering what has changed in Volta, here’s a video of the first half. In my opinion, the new storyline confuses me even more & there are parts of the show that are lacking something. I really hope they figure out a way to put all the pieces together. Also the song “Lone Soul” has been cut.

So it looks like Cyr Wheel and Diabolo are not full acts but just mini auditions in Quid Pro Quo game show. Not as bad as I thought. The trampo wall act looks amazing so that's definately one element of the show that's way stronger since parkour was removed.

Thank you Allxvita for share with you this link. Well, the storyline change a little (look back to the original proposal and now)...

The diabolo and cyr looks interesting for the quid pro quo, but I want to see more for have a opinion for that, but as expector, looks more interesting that before...

I agree with you Colton! The trampo wall come as fresh air to volta. Since the premiere, I miss acts more stronger for the show (just look the first reviews...)

Well, but let's continue to see the next steps and what will coming soon at VOLTA...
