The Show
Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon.

Amaluna is a fusion of the words ama, which refers to “mother” in many languages, and luna, which means “moon,” a symbol of femininity that evokes both the mother-daughter relationship and the idea of goddess and protector of the planet. Amaluna is also the name of the mysterious island where the story unfolds.

Sponsors and Partners
Amaluna acknowledges Infiniti, CGI, Xerox, Rogers and Ernst & Young as the official sponsors.
