La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil closed its curtains for good on December 31 at Disney Springs, but the Orlando theme park is promising a return to Cirque du Soleil very soon.
Cirque du Soleil and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts recently announced the renewal of their long-lasting relationship with the creation of a brand-new show at Disney Springs. The two companies came together to bring audiences La Nouba in 1998. Now, twenty years later, they are continuing to entertain by combining Cirque du Soleil’s circus-like acts and Disney’s magic.
“This long-standing relationship is built on mutual esteem and the success achieved by our two creative businesses throughout the past two decades with La Nouba,” said Tiffany Rende, Senior Vice President, Corporate Alliances and Operating Participants, The Walt Disney Corporation in a statement. “We look forward to our continued collaboration with Cirque du Soleil in developing this new show that will honor Disney animation’s rich history.”
The new show will give nods to the history of Disney in Cirque’s unique way. “We are incredibly inspired by Disney’s immense creative universe. We are convinced that bringing Disney’s magic to life on stage will touch audiences and bring them back to their childhood,” said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group in a statement.
Stay tuned for more details including the name and opening date on the brand-new Disney-based Cirque du Soleil show.
