Cirque du Soleil Will Bring Hit Broadway Show PARAMOUR to Hamburg Germany

Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group and Stage Entertainment announced today that the Broadway Show Cirque du Soleil PARAMOUR will relocate to Hamburg, Germany's musical metropolis. The hit musical will have its European premiere at the Stage Theater Neue Flora in April 2019.

After having completed a successful year on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre, PARAMOUR closed on April 16, 2017 in order for the theater to undergo some refurbishment. Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group had discussions with several theatre owners in New York and abroad, interested in welcoming this production, and decided to work with Stage Entertainment for a unique production in Germany.

"Following our Broadway debut, we are excited to present PARAMOUR in a European theatre and are thrilled to realise this project with Stage Entertainment, the largest musical producer in Europe. We are still dedicated to New York with the Blue Man Group, the touring show VOLTA celebrating its opening weekend in Uniondale and the permanent attraction NFL Experience Times Square," explained Jerry Nadal, Senior Vice-President Resident Shows.

"Bringing the musical PARAMOUR to the German stage with Cirque du Soleil is one of the most fascinating and challenging theatre projects we ever had," said Uschi Neuss, Managing Director of Stage Entertainment Germany. "The Stage Theater Neue Flora with its spacious space seems like it was made especially for this breath-taking production."

PARAMOUR is blending the best of Broadway with Cirque du Soleil's signature style, to provide a new experience for both traditional musical theatre goers and Cirque du Soleil's fans. The show has many of the elements beloved on Broadway: a book-driven love story narrative, live musicians, and professional actors in lead roles; but with the Cirque du Soleil aesthetic integrated throughout the show: visionary production design on a grand scale, world class entertainment, and acrobatic feats that defy the imagination.

PARAMOUR is a rapturous and passionate new experience that unites the signature spectacle of Cirque du Soleil with the storytelling magic that defines musical theatre. Set in the glamorous world of Golden Age Hollywood, this groundbreaking event spins the tale of a beautiful young poet forced to choose between love and art. Featuring a cast that blends the best in circus arts and musical theatre, PARAMOUR transports the audience to a world of sublime beauty and emotion as it walks the exhilarating tightrope of the heart.
