“To see the long-awaited return of a Big Top show in Montreal receive such overwhelming enthusiasm and excitement is something we've all been waiting for. We're honored to be able to finally perform here, at home, and continue delivering the world-class theatrical experience for which we're known, said Stéphane Lefebvre, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. It's always a special moment for us to present a show at home and to meet our fans and welcome new spectators. After two years of pause, this grand return will certainly be very emotional for the entire Cirque family.”


Cirque du Soleil also celebrates its triumphant return on stage in Canada, where everything started 38 years ago, as KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities today becomes the first Big top to be raised on Canadian soil since the relaunch of our shows. With more than 112,000 tickets sold in Canada and, due to an enthusiastic demand, Cirque du Soleil is also pleased to announce date extensions for its two other shows touring in the country - Alegria in Vancouver (March 25 to June 5, 2022) and KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities in Toronto (April 14 to July 17, 2022). Cirque fans from near and far are invited to spark their imagination and ignite their emotions under the Big Top, as Cirque du Soleil is officially back on stage in Canada.

Additional announcements are expected, as the company is preparing for the venue of an arena show that will visit 4 Canadian provinces, and another Canadian Big Top market is to be announced in April.
