3 May

Akhmetzhan Yesimov, chairman of the board of Astana Expo-2017 JSC, at a government meeting devoted to cultural and entertainment program of EXPO 2017 explained why it was decided to invite the legendary Canadian Cirque du Soleil to the world specialized exhibition, Tengrinews.kz reported.

"I know that there was a talk in the government about the fact that this is a big sum, twice as much as Lara Fabian but we must bear in mind that Lara Fabian gives one concert and Cirque du Soleil will be here for 93 days and will give 71 performances", - Yesimov stressed.

He specified that, in his opinion, the performances of the famous circus should pay back the costs of their organization.

"As I said, tickets for this show will cost from four to six thousand tenge and in general the circus will pay back almost all the costs that we spend", - explained the head of the exhibition organizer.

Let us remind that the famous Cirque du Soleil will present an exclusive show in the framework of the world specialized exhibition Astana EXPO 2017. The Canadian circus will perform for three months almost every day. The premiere is scheduled for June 16, and tickets are already on sale.

In addition to the Canadian circus, the Kazakh State Circus troupe from Almaty and the famous Russian circus of Yuri Nikulin will present their program in Astana.
