Cirque du Soleil returns to the Royal Albert Hall with Totem.
Totem takes you on a stunning journey into the Evolution of Mankind – from our original amphibian state to our ultimate quest for flight.

Featuring Cirque du Soleil’s mind-blowing signature acts, and returning to London after record-breaking previous seasons, Totem is an unforgettable spectacle for all ages.
