Orlando, FL, March 17, 2020 – In light of current events, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group announces today the temporary suspension of the start of preview performances of Drawn to Life at Disney Springs which was planned for March 20.  This action follows the postponement of numerous Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group shows worldwide in recent days and takes into consideration the most current recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

From the very beginning of the new coronavirus outbreak, the Group took rigorous measures to protect its work teams and the public. Our priority has always been, and remains, the health and safety of our artists, our partners, our employees and our audiences.  We will continue to monitor and assess the situation to determine when the show previews will start.
