Cirque du Soleil has arrived in Rome. Waiting to be able to attend the “Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities” – the first post-pandemic show of the amazing Canadian company – last Saturday March 11th, the tent was officially raised at the Tor di Quinto that will host the show starting next March 21st.
A team of more than 120 workers helped raise the Grand Chapiteau of yellow and blue canvas for the first time in Italy which, in concert with the four main trees, reaches more than 25 meters in height and will dominate the capital’s skyline until April 29.
Around the pavilion, which can accommodate about 2,500 people, more than 100 pillars have been erected, which are necessary to complete this extraordinary village covering an area of 48,000 square meters within six days.
“KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities”, is one of the most impressive shows of the famous Canadian company, produced by the two Italian partners Show Bees and Vivo Concerti, as it will present a journey of pure imagination that will cross the past, present and future. It features 49 artists from 17 different countries, some of whom have toured with Cirque du Soleil for over 15 years. Over 8,000 costumes and 426 props were created for this production, which is the 35th since 1984.
The Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group show will move, after the dates in Rome at the Tor di Quinto, to Milan at Piazzale Cuoco from Wednesday 10 May 2023 to Sunday 25 June.
