‘Cirque du Soleil’ Returns to Greece With New Production in September



Cirque du SoleilThe Cirque du Soleil is returning to Greece with a new production in September, following the “Alegria” and “Dralion” performances here, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary from the founding of the famous spectacle.
Called “Quidam,” the Cirque’s new production is coming to Greece in September for 19 performances in Athens and for the first time, in Thessaloniki.

At a press conference held by the Quebec-based company, Canadian Ambassador Robert Peck, who has supported the last three appearances of the Cirque du Soleil in Greece, said that like all of the group’s performances, “Quidam” is full of humor, surprises and unforeseen events. It is however, a commentary on our present society as well. Despite the difficult moments that Greece is facing, it is very important for us to support culture and the arts and we must show that things are continuing to take place in the country even during a crisis. This is the message for performances such as these.”

In Athens, the performances will be taking place at the indoor Olympic Stadium (OAKA) on September 20-28 and in Thessaloniki at the PAOK Sports Arena on September 30-October 5.

Sales start on Thursday, May 15, at the Germanos electronics stores and at the website of Lavris cultural agency, for 28-35 euros. Special prices will be provided for groups also.
