40 Years Around Our Sun

40 wonderous years of dreaming the impossible.

Cirque du Soleil has captivated audiences around the globe for four decades. What started out as a pipe-dream for Guy Laliberté back in the 1980’s soon became an international phenomenon, bringing circus arts to the masses in a way no one had experienced before.

The road so far has been a medley of acrobatic feats and performances imbued with emotion. A journey that has shaped our vision of entertainment in a unique way. We take this powerful perspective with us everywhere our cast and crew set foot!

As the curtain rises on our 40th year, it's not merely a milestone; it's a testament to the extraordinary journey of imagination and a celebration of the wonders we’ve brought to the stage.

In 2024, Cirque du Soleil promises an encore that takes you Beyond Dreams

We're thrilled to unveil groundbreaking new shows, each brimming with the imagination and artistry that define Cirque du Soleil, starting with an all-new country music-inspired show set to premiere in Nashville. And since music has always been the heartbeat of our performances, you can also expect new albums and singles throughout this year of celebration.

Plus, more than any year ever, we’re reaching Beyond Dreams with captivating fan events, new immersive experiences, celebratory anniversary content, new merchandise and collectibles, and revolutionary new attractions that will send you to worlds unseen.
