If you’re looking for something fun and unique to do in Chicago this summer, I’ve get the perfect solution for you. You can never go wrong with a Cirque du Soleil show. This summer, Cirque is bringing their newest production, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities, to the Windy City and it promises to be epic!
Written and directed by Michel Laprise, the new touring production will premiere under the iconic blue-and-yellow Big Top at the United Center parking lot, located at 1901 W. Madison Street, beginning August 6, 2015.
KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities premiered to the world in Montréal in April 2014 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 35th production. Since its debut, the critics have been raving: “KURIOS is Cirque du Soleil’s strongest act in years…one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen on a stage” (Toronto Star) and “KURIOS is the best Cirque du Soleil show in a long time.” (San Francisco Chronicle).
KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible. In this realm set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, reality is quite relative indeed as our perception of it is utterly transformed. The name of the show refers to the humble and strange characters that inhabit the Seeker’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
Tickets will be available for purchase beginning TODAY, April 17, 2015 by visiting Cirque du Soleil or calling 1-877-9 CIRQUE (1-877-924-7783). Tickets range from $35 – $145.
