Cirque du Soleil returns to Toronto in April with touring show after more than 2 years
Cirque du Soleil is set to return to Toronto next spring with its first show in over two years.
Montreal circus company claims its critically acclaimed touring show Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities returns to town on April 14 for a limited presentation at Ontario Place.
Cirque du Soleil has been performing in Las Vegas since June, when its resident productions reopened Mystery, O, Love the Beatles and Michael Jackson One.
The company announces the return of Kurios marks the relaunch of its âmarqueeâ tours, continued Alegria in Houston in November, Luzia in London and Kooza in Punta Cana, both from January 2022.
Cirque du Soleil is also returning to Montreal with Kooza in April 2022, and in Trois-RiviÃ¨res, Quebec, with Long live our Divas in July.
The Cirque du Soleil Group canceled its shows last year and laid off nearly 3,500 employees due to the pandemic.
It was sold to a group of its creditors led by Catalyst Capital Group late last year after it was forced to seek protection from its creditors.
The last Cirque du Soleil show in Toronto was Alegria, which ended in December 2019.
Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Group, called Toronto âa special place for usâ.
âMore than ever, we need the shared connection that live entertainment brings,â Lamarre said in a statement Monday.
