Details of Cirque Du Soleil and the Ticket Luck value
Cirque Shows Featured in various venues around the world 'Cirque du Soleil' is a modern version of a circus that includes amazing feats of dance, acrobatics, music, and other dazzling activities. It celebrates the raw human power and beauty. Watching this performance amongst the elements like water, fire, and dizzying heights, just absolutely thrills your senses.
It all began in the early 1980s in Quebec, Canada when a group of performers (mostly stilt-walkers) became popular as 'The High Heels Club'. Over time the club started introducing other acts like jugglers and fire-blowers. They and many other such acts used to gather at festivals to entertain the visitors. In 1984 all these groups came together under one big tent to perform and Cirque du Soleil was born. It was mostly the creation of Guy Lalibert and Daniel Gauthier; two entertainer and entrepreneurs in their twenties who despite rejection from banks didn't flinch in their endeavor to perform amazing circus feats.
Even at that time it was a new concept. Featuring outrageous set of clothes, it was a dramatic mix of street entertainment and circus arts presented under magical lighting and aided by original music. Another thing that made it (and still does) different was the lack of any animal in the ring. At first when this circus started touring it was only limited to Canada then in 1987 it crossed over to perform in California. That was an instant hit and after that there was no looking back for the Cirque. With the start of the 90s, Cirque De Soleil was known internationally touring other continents as well.
Today, it is more than a big top event! Cirque du Soleil is one of the most accomplished and the biggest brands in international entertainment. Now there are a number of different Cirque shows charming millions with the spectacular fantasy world and captivating hearts and minds of both young and old.
