Roll up, roll up…

The legendary circus show, Cirque du Soleil will be performing in Abu Dhabi this week, with their new production, Bazzar from March 6 to 16, 2019.

It will be the first time the troupe will be making their debut, not just in Abu Dhabi, but in the Middle East as well.

Described as a ‘breath-taking, colourful homage to Cirque du Soleil legacy’, Bazzar will feature an array of death-defying acrobats, awe-inspiring dancers and talented musicians ready to wow the audience.

The show will take place in the purpose-built Big Top on Yas Island, which stands at an impressive 19 meters high and is 41 meters wide, with seating for up to 1,500 spectators.

During the show, expect to be spellbound by 30 performers, who will put on a show of fire breathing, stilt walking, contortion, trapeze as well as dancers and musicians who will perform live.
