Why Cirque du Soleil continues to amaze

The Cirque du Soleil began in 1984, and in that time they have become the world’s biggest theatre producer. There isn’t a territory on our planet they haven’t displayed their abundant skills and creativity. From humble beginnings in Canada to performing at the 2007 SuperBowl to becoming multiple award winners, Cirque du Soleil is a show that you can’t help to adore.

With over 5000 employees, the Cirque du Soleil are a global phenomenon constantly evolving and entertaining. Corporate investors know when they see a good thing. Thus, earlier in 2015, TPG Capital, Fosun Capital Group and Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec purchased 90% of Cirque du Soleil. Such was the importance of acquisition, the sale has to receive regulatory approval from the Government of Canada – this was completed only a matter of weeks ago, on 30 June 2015. Understandably, they one of Canada’s most famous exports.

They are currently on one of their famous world-tours and will reach London in January 2016. This won’t be in a damp tent on Wimbledon Common, but at the Royal Albert Hall. Plenty of space there for high dives, trickery and spectacular scenes!

They first played the Hall in January 1996 with Saltimbanco. At that time Cirque was an unknown phenomenon to the UK public and ticket sales were slow to start with. It was not until performers appeared on the Royal Variety Show in November 1995 that Cirque caught the attention of people and tickets started flying off the shelves. The Royal Albert Hall has been their London home since then.

At their London dates in 2016, they will be demonstrating their new portfolio of skills and dexterity. The show – Amaluna – is the story of a young girl coming of age, falling in love and overcoming many challenges and obstacles.

Through spectacular performances, a story is told by these highly skilled performers – seeing really is believing.
