Peggy @ 99.1 presents Cirque du Soleil: Kurios under the iconic blue-and-yellow Big Top Friday, June 2 until Sunday, July 9th, 2017 at the corner of Sterling Lyon Parkway and Kenaston Blvd!
Written and directed by Michel Laprise, 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.
“I am very excited to welcome Cirque du Soleil’s KURIOS to Winnipeg,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “It further demonstrates how Winnipeg is increasingly becoming a world-class tourist destination. Thank you to Cirque du Soleil and True North for bringing this incredible touring show to Winnipeg!”
As a partner of the touring show, True North Sports + Entertainment is proud to be a part of the Big Top experience.
"True North is extremely excited to assist Cirque du Soleil’s efforts to bring a Big Top presentation of its world renowned shows to Winnipeg. We always strive for the highest quality sports and entertainment programming, and Cirque du Soleil is indeed the highest and best in the world for incredible, eye-popping presentations that engage, thrill, entertain and inspire audiences of all ages," said Kevin Donnelly, Senior Vice President, Venues + Entertainment, True North Sports + Entertainment. "Once again, we are extremely confident that Manitobans will support this offering and beyond that—it allows us to play host to so many incoming visitors who travel to see Cirque du Soleil in their incredible tent presentations."
Winnipeg’s lead economic development agency looks forward to the impact this show will have on the city.
“Cirque du Soleil’s latest offering promises to up the economic ante in consequential ways for our city and province, and I’m confident the response from Winnipeg’s robust arts and culture crowd will vindicate Cirque’s decision to leverage its record of successful investments here by staging such an awesome spectacle typically reserved for larger cities,” said Dayna Spiring, president and CEO of Economic Development Winnipeg Inc. “Winnipeggers are passionate purveyors of entertainment, and we appreciate the value unique events like this add to our quality of life. When next June comes around, I know I’ll be joining tens of thousands of fellow thrill-seekers whose curiosity will be both piqued and sated by KURIOS.”
