Welcome to Astana

The premiere of the Cirque du Soleil show took place at EXPO

19 June

Residents and guests of the capital of Kazakhstan were shown a performance by Cirque du Soleil prepared especially for the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017. Over 150 people worked on the production, "Khabar 24" TV channel reported.

"Cirque du Soleil is famous for its principled refusal to use animals in performances. This time again the whole show was created exclusively on human energy - according the theme of the EXPO exhibition. The idea of "green" energy was supplemented by electric-motocycles. In general, one surprise was followed by another", - executive director of Cirque du Soleil Daniel Forte said.

The circus troupe had been preparing the unusual program for 9 months. The circus performers will perform for the Kazakhstani spectators throughout the summer.

"The show can only be seen in Astana. We've been preparing for 9 months. This is an exclusive show, we can already say that this is the most impressive show we've ever created. I know many tourists and circus lovers come to Kazakhstan to see our show", - Cirque du Soleil CEO Bernard Poirier said.

The vivid performance was dedicated to Kazakhstan. The performance used costumes with national ornaments, musical accompaniment to the sounds of dombra and kobyz, as well as the image of the hovering golden eagle throughout the show.

"I just love Kazakhstan, we studied your culture for a long time and it carried us away. We used a lot of gold color as a symbol of Altyn Adam. We read books, watched films so that Kazakh coloring could be felt throughout the show. As a result the combination turned out to be amazing", - Daniel Forte said.

Let us remind that tickets for the show of the Canadian Cirque du Soleil do not give the right to enter to the exhibition site. You can get to the show only after purchasing a ticket for the exhibition itself.
