CIRQUE DU SOLEIL SHOWS
Cirque du Soleil is one of the newest and most adventurous types of theater worldwide. In these shows, the drama and production of theater meets the spectacle-based events of circus. A team of thousands of employees work together to orchestrate costume design, choreography, acrobatics, music, and other elements that make these gravity-defying shows possible, resulting in one of the newest and most adventurous types of theater worldwide. How can you safely turn a bed into a functional trampoline? How can you make costumes that can fend off fire and water? How can you magically morph acrobatic gear into story-conforming costumes? The components of a Cirque du Soleil show will change what you think is possible of humans and of stage performers.
The drama and production of theater met the spectacle-based events of circus in Canada in the 1980s. A troupe of street performers took to a small town in Quebec. When this group founded by Gilles Ste-Croix came to the street, they brought juggling, dancing, fire breathing, stilting, and a hodgepodge of other acts, allowing people who passed by to sample a variety of circus-theater talents. By 1987, the troupe were able to take their show on the road, touring the United States. In revolutionary and crowd-pleasing developments, they used what worked in street performances—the theater aspects—to elevate the experience for viewers. Audiences had a 360-degree view of performers, just like on the streets. Audiences viewed the intricate set designs not afforded to regular circus shows. Audiences' engagement was the core philosophy of the troupe’s artistic choices.
Selling out show after show, Cirque du Soleil went abroad in 1990; since then, they’ve developed more shows, reaching more audiences, while keeping those core audience-focused principles at the forefront. Over the years, some shows have become permanent fixtures of Cirque du Soleil, starting with the pioneering Mystere (1993), housed in Las Vegas to this day. Other shows come and go, such as Saltimbanco (1992-2012). Notable shows sometimes return, such as Alegria, which first premiered in 1994 and returned in 2019, introducing 14 million people to Cirque du Soleil in its first run alone. Because Cirque du Soleil is even more highly specialized and niche than many other types of theater, do not risk a show selling out. It might never return.
To experience some of theater’s most coveted shows, pick up some tickets, and be sure to bring some friends or family to marvel at the production together. It is where performers glide on ice. It is where extreme acrobatics tell a story. It is where neat tricks and illusions create in-person effects that seem impossible beyond animation or imagination. It is guaranteed to be like nothing you have ever seen before.
