World Premiere of Cirque du Soleil ECHO
Presented until August 20th, under the iconic Big Top on the Jacques-Cartier pier, in the Old Port of Montreal
This new show is Cirque du Soleil's 20th creation under the Big Top. ECHO is distinguished by its bold visuals and contemporary aesthetic that highlight spectacular acts performed by artists at the top of their game.
As determined as ever to dazzle us, Cirque du Soleil once again manages to surprise us with a show that combines poetry, performing arts and high-flying acrobatics, exploring the precious balance between humans, animals and the world they share.
Future, the protagonist, invites us into a fantasy world where she meets animal and human characters. Driven by the spirit of collaboration, they join forces to rebuild their planet little by little and create a better world.
ECHO is a show that plunges the audience into a universe of a thousand and one colors, wonders and possibilities on the themes of inventiveness, hope of youth and the importance of empathy.
Environmental initiative in St-Michel
Cirque du Soleil wants to make a positive contribution to the ever-changing world by implementing projects that have a direct impact on the environment and the communities where its shows are performed. For the premiere of ECHO, the leader in live entertainment is proposing a tree-planting initiative in collaboration with a Montreal-based urban forestry company. More than 40 trees will be planted on May 30 in the Saint-Michel district, where the company's head office is located. This measure aims to improve the quality of life of the residents and help the community better manage heat waves and pollution from nearby industrial activities. In addition, all guests of the world premiere received a plantable card allowing them to join the movement for change.
Cirque du Soleil's new show is presented under the Big Top in the Old Port of Montreal until August 20, 2023. Tickets online www.cirquedusoleil.com/echo.
ECHO is presented by Sun Life, principal partner of the Canadian tour. Cirque du Soleil also wishes to thank its official partners Air Canada and Mastercard.
