Thousands came out for the Premier of Toruk The First Flight by Cirque Du Soleil at Bridgestone Arena.

The show was based on the movie Avatar, but was set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film.

Rehearsals were held Wednesday afternoon before the premier that night.

The show has added the unique style on the story with cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and music - what Cirque Du Soleil is known for.

Performers said it's like no other show. As of Wednesday, tickets were still available for the shows this weekend.
