LONE TREE, CO – Aureum is an adventure tale told through heart-stopping aerial routines and amazing acrobatics. A time traveler meets the beautiful defender of nature’s power only to find that power threatened by dark forces. Audiences are thrilled by the original music, choreography, and some never-seen-before aerial performances, making for an unforgettable experience for the whole family! Aureum: An Acrobatic Adventure Tale visits the Lone Tree Arts Center Friday, February 21 at 8pm.

The benevolent White Queen of Aureum and her warrior guardian welcome twins into the world. Knowing that the White Queen’s bloodline is the only way to gain control of Aureum, the Red Empress hatches an evil plan to kidnap one of the twins, setting our tale in motion. With a cast internationally recognized as performers at the top of their field, Aureum is a high-flying, compelling acrobatic story.
