CIRQUE DU SOLEIL COMES TO BROOKLYN FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER
QUIDAM TO PLAY BARCLAYS CENTER FOR SEVEN PERFORMANCES ONLY FROM JULY 24TH TO 28TH, 2013
Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that the critically-acclaimed production Quidam will be presented in Brooklyn from July 24th to 28th, 2013 at Barclays Center for seven performances only. Quidam will mark the very first time Cirque du Soleil has come to Brooklyn.
About the show: Quidam had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. Since then, the production has toured on five continents and been experienced by millions of people. The show performed in New York under the blue & yellow Big Top in Battery Park City in 1998. In December 2010, Quidam embarked on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but now in arenas throughout North America. The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters.
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.
