Cirque du Soleil is the contemporary circus company raising the game from Barnum and Bailey’s to an ethereal world of circus arts pushing the bounds of believability. Cirque du Soleil tickets are available around the world as thousands of performers, set designers, and stage hands make these 26 touring and residential productions a sold-out phenomenon.
All this began as little more than an affiliation of street performers trying to make their love their work. Buskers, jugglers, and more, led by Guy Laliberte and Gilles St-Croiux developed a touring troupe. While, the modern publically traded company is able to claim near instant success for every show it envisions, these early days found a group of artisans relying on grant money from Canada to keep the dream afloat. It took nearly a decade, but ultimately the government had given the creative troupe enough breathing room to take the world by storm with the show Nouvelle Experience.
Quick to take advantage of this first financial success, Cirque expanded its catalog of shows. These included internationally acclaimed tours and residential Vegas acts. Incredibly the rapid growth in the 1990s has been sustained through the first decade in the 21st century and into the second. Overall, 90 million people around the world enjoy this unique experience combining circus acts from around the globe with inspired set and costume design and loose themes keeping the shows focused enough to develop concurrent productions.
Now, Cirque tickets preside on every continent but Antarctica. The company is so beloved and renown it has been asked to open major events like Comic Con in San Diego and to produce original work for the high royal courts around the globe. While those shows are quite rare, there are more than enough shows to satiate audiences in every major city in every corner of every country. From show featuring stages built to defy gravity to gigantic aquatic tanks holding millions of gallons of water, this is perhaps the biggest employer of acrobats, gymnasts, aerialists, jugglers, and contortionists in the world. Together with an imaginative crew of show producers, this company will continue to keep the tradition of the circus alive while breaking new ground.
