Cirque du Soleil's glitzy Avatar-inspired production is invading the Mall of Asia Arena from now until July 2. There's no Jake Sully, no Neytiri, but Eywa, the mother goddess in the form of an ethereal-looking tree, makes an appearance, and so does the legendary Toruk, an aerial dragonesque creature famously tamed by the protagonist in the film.

Once again at risk, Eywa's life (and consequently, the life of all the Na'vi) falls into the hands of a trio of troublemakers who must get five emblems from the five Na'vi tribes. The emblems will help them tame the Toruk, which, in turn, will renew life into Eywa. With the dazzling lights and a backbend around every corner competing for your attention, the over-two-hour story can be hard to follow, but it's worth a watch if you like breathtaking sets.
