Roll up, roll up, we have got some exciting circus news to bring to you.
Cirque du Soleil, the master of breath-taking, gravity-defying showcases, is coming to Abu Dhabi for the first time next year as part of the Mother of the Nation Festival.
The world-renowned theatrical smash is bringing its unique style to the capital with the spectacular production BAZZAR, set to be held on Yas Island in March.
We can expect a troupe of acrobats, dancers and musicians to bring incredible circus arts, mind-blowing stunts and a truly unforgettable show when the show reaches our shores.
It marks the first time the Canadian-based promoters have brought their famed spectacle to Abu Dhabi since it was formed in 1984.
Sia.S.Far, managing director of event management firm Alchemy Project, said: "We are tremendously proud to bring BAZZAR, the latest Cirque du Soleil production, to Abu Dhabi audiences.
"BAZZAR is the biggest touring show in Alchemy Project’s history through six countries, three continents, over 210 touring days with the biggest and most reputable entertainment company in the world, Cirque Du Soleil."
BAZZAR is Cirque du Soleil’s 43rd original production since forming all those years ago and it is busy touring the world before reaching the UAE.
Performers will use props such as ropes, the trapeze, fire and the Indian Pole to dazzle audiences with incredible stunts.
In true circus style, it will be held under a big top in an as-yet undisclosed location on Yas Island from March 6 to 16.
Tickets start from Dhs195 and go on sale on Wednesday, December 19, exclusively via www.tixbox.com, with early bird discount of 40 per cent available for the first 30 days.
