For the first time ever, Cirque du Soleil has landed in Anchorage. Its east-meets-west-themed show “Dralion” is in town this week, with a cast of over 50 artists -- acrobats, musicians, clowns, dancers, singers, aerialists and more.Artistic Director Sean McKeown said "Dralion" began its run in 1999, and this week will mark its final curtain call. "The show lasted 15 years, that’s a very long time. We’ve been everywhere we can go, basically, so we reached a point where it just came time to close."
