Volta is the title of Cirque du Soleil's big top show which is themed around extreme sports; the show story-line is about a popular game show host named Waz, who has been blinded by fortune and fame, but starts a personal quest to find again his true self by going through his memories, after discovering a group of free spirits who encourage him during this process.[3][4][5][6]

Volta is Cirque du Soleil’s 41st production since 1984, and its 18th show presented under the Big Top. Its creative team comprises 16 creators under the artistic guidance of Jean Guibert (Director of Creation) and Bastien Alexandre (Writer and Director).[7]

Death of Yann Arnaud

On March 17, 2018, aerialist Yann Arnaud died of the injuries endured when he fell 20 feet during an aerial straps performance in Tampa Bay, Florida. As a result, Cirque du Soleil cancelled the two remaining performances in Tampa Bay[12] and postponed their opening in New Jersey[13]


Volta began its Grand Chapiteau tour in North America in its newly designed white and grey Big Top[14][15] designed to help reduce environmental impact by reducing heat penetration into the tent.
