About TORUK – The First Flight: TORUK – The First Flight is a live, immersive, multimedia spectacle that brings to the stage the breathtaking world of Cameron’s AVATAR like you have never seen it before.  Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and creates the bond between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination. Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora. TORUK – The First Flight will perform five shows at Allentown’s PPL Center from December 4-6.  For more information, visit
