VALLEJO — The original Cirque Dreams aquatic production has returned to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for a performance daily through Aug, 17.

“Cirque Dreams Splashtastic ” features aerialists, acrobats and artists of Cirque Dreams complemented by the leaps and bows of the park’s bottlenose dolphins.

This show centers on physical prowess, as the performers bring together a series of high-flying stunts and aerial acts above water. In the water, dolphins emulate some of the artistry in their own way, as marine mammal trainers guide them through a series of behaviors.

This season, director Neil Goldberg has choreographed new acts and incorporated new original music into the production while keeping the lighthearted feel from the first show.

The show was created and produced by Goldberg, an acclaimed Broadway director and Cirque Dreams founder. He’s working with a mostly all-new cast and ensemble that include jugglers, aerialists, acrobats and strength performers.

“Our goal was to complement the personalities of the dolphins and performers through playfulness, extraordinary feats, synchronicity and unparalleled showmanship,” said Goldberg, in a press release. “ ‘Cirque Dreams Splashtastic’ is one of those unique and memorable entertainment attractions rarely experienced.”

Park president Don McCoy agreed.

“The Cirque Dreams show was rated as the best show last season among our Six Flags parks across the country,” McCoy said in a press release. “We’re so excited to bring back this electrifying and visually stunning show, one that is truly exemplary in every way.”

The show is included with park admission.

Now in its 21st year, Cirque Dreams shows have toured the world, appeared on Broadway, cruise lines, casinos, major events and theme parks including Six Flags Fiesta Texas with “Cirque Dreams Coobrila.”

    I saw this show a few days ago, and it was worth the admission to the park! It was amazing! I was on the edge of my seat completely engaged the entire time!
