Quidam in Washington — Coming soon


Cirque du Soleil’s touring show Michael Jackson: The Immortal has just added 17 additional dates ** to its 2011-2012 tour schedule.

Tickets for the current dates & newly added dates are on sale now.

The new dates will bring the hugely successful show to Boise, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Washington DC, and many other metropolitan areas, giving even even more audiences the chance to catch Cirque du Soleil’s latest spectacle in the flesh. Unlike your average Cirque spectacle, this is an arena-only show, and it’s the perfect chance to celebrate both the music of the late Michael Jackson, and the visual expertise of the Cirque du Soleil.

“From the moonwalk to the iconic choreography we’ve seen in ‘Thriller’ and ‘Beat It’ and ‘Bad’ — all his mini-movies and music videos — mix that with the world of Cirque… You shake it and can literally turn it on its head. Imagine taking the moonwalk to new levels, to new heights. Being able to do the moonwalk literally as if you’re on the moon, all the way around the arena.” – Jamie King of the Los Angeles Times.

The extra dates now bring the total number of North American tour stops to 47, and new tickets have also been released for many of the already-announced dates. Be sure to check the Cirque du Soleil website for full ticket details, and for the special club-member pre-sale.

Cirque du Soleil’s buzzy, anticipated show, Iris—which is about filmmaking, and was created specifically for the Kodak Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center—had its official premiere on Sunday, Sept 25th with two shows, one each at 5 and 9 p.m. After the shows’ confetti-filled, acrobatic finale, guests streamed out of the theater for an after-party on a closed-down Hollywood Boulevard, overseen by Cirque’s Montreal-based operations manager for special events, Marie Josée Adam, with production by Entertainment Lighting Services led by Robert Chambers Pullman. There, they found the long, sprawling space completely blanketed in red carpet and transformed for the evening into a look inspired by a huge editing table.

The thick crowd of about 5,000 walked the carpet to a central bar meant to appear as if it were wrapped in film. Giant partitions meant to look like lengths of film divided the space into various zones, including a V.I.P. lounge, a red darkroom-inspired space, a dessert lounge, and—at the far end—a Ferris wheel that offered a rare viewpoint over the action. The entire event space measured about 35,000 square feet. MORE >>

Cirque du Soleil® invites you to IRIS, a Journey Through the World of Cinema™.

World premiere at the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood & Highland Center

This large-scale production – created exclusively for its permanent home at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles – offers a new take on the art of cinema as only Cirque du Soleil could imagine it.

IRIS is an inventive spectacle that combines acrobatics, dance, projections and live music. The show takes the audience on a mesmerizing journey that blurs boundaries between live performance and moving images.

IRIS plunges spectators into the heart of the movie-making process, from illustration to animation, black and white to colour, into a world of shadows and light. The story unfolds as two young heroes venture through a universe that brings to life a succession of cinematic genres.

Join acclaimed choreographer/director Philippe Decouflé and Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman on this fantastic voyage breathtakingly unfurled with 72 performers.

Tickets to IRIS are available now.
Use promotion code CTG

Iris runs through December 31st.
