More than a leopard in a leotard, a dralion is a symbolic melding of East and West. Cirque Du Soleil brings spectacular stunts and a whole lot of Spandex to “Dralion,” a production that combines the troupe’s acrobatic prowess with ancient Chinese circus traditions. Watch 52 world-class acrobats, gymnasts, musicians, singers and clowns flip, spin, bend and leap. “Dralion” opens at the Richmond Coliseum on Wednesday, Aug. 8, at 7:30 p.m. and runs through Aug. 12. $35-$80. cirquedusoleil.com/dralion.
