Cirque du Soleil will launch public ticket sales this Friday (Nov. 4) for a performance run next Oct. 4 through 14, 2012 at Blaisdell Arena.
Nothing like thinking ahead!
The show is “Quidam,” a production the prolific Cirque du Soleil organization first launched in its iconic Big Top in Montreal, its headquarters, in April 1966. It has been a company staple in tours to five continents in the past decade.
It will be the third Cirque vehicle to roll into the Blaisdell.
This one features the usual fare: world-class acrobats, dances, singers and musicians, decked out in colorful and imaginative costumes staged in Cirque’s sphere where the outside-the-box thinking fuses with incredible and indelible artistry.
“Quidam” boasts a cast of 52 and focuses on young Zoe, who is bored, and ignored by her distant parents. To fill her life with warmth and inspiration, she glides into the imaginary world of Quidam where whimsical and extraordinary characters encourage her to free her soul.
Will you be there for the enchantment?
