Cirque du Soleil Presents QUIDAM at Royal Albert Hall, Beg. Tonight
Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that their award-winning production Quidam will be presented in London from tonight 4 January 2014 at Royal Albert Hall for a limited engagement. Tickets for the general public are released for sale today and are available at www.cirquedusoleil.com/quidam or by calling 0845 401 5045.
Quidam received its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. Since then, the production has toured on five continents and played to over 10 million patrons worldwide. During the run of Quidam at the Royal Albert Hall, Cirque du Soleil will welcome its 3 millionth London patron. In December 2010 Quidam embarked on a new journey, performing the same production in arenas throughout the world.
Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world-the world of Quidam-where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.
The director of Quidam is Franco Dragone, the artistic guide is Gilles Ste-Croix, set designs are by Michel Crête, costume designs are by Dominique Lemieux and François Barbeau, musical direction and composition is by Benoit Jutras, with choreography by Debra Brown, lighting by Luc Lafortune and sound by Franc??ois Bergeron.
Quidam features an international cast of 45 world-class acrobats from 19 countries across the globe, including the award winning acts Banquine, in which fifteen artists perform sequences of acrobatics and human pyramids in synchronized movements and Aerial Contortion in Silk combining intensity, power and grace suspended high above the stage. Other acts include Aerial Hoops, Rope Skipping, Diablo and Juggling.
