Cirque du Soleil will return to Adelaide next year with its most acclaimed touring show, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™ opening 29 May 2020 under their Signature Big Top at the Adelaide Showground.
Written and directed by Michel Laprise, KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible. In this realm set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, reality is quite relative indeed as our perception of it is utterly transformed.
Tickets are available for purchase to the general public beginning Monday 15 July at 10am by visiting cirquedusoleil.com/kurios or by calling 1800 036 685.
Rachel Lancaster, Artistic Director of KURIOS said “Cirque du Soleil has a very strong relationship with our fans in Adelaide. It’s been four years since our last visit and we are excited to share KURIOS, our newest show in our brand new Big Top. Adelaide is always one of the highlights of our Australian tour.”
Since its debut, critics across North America and Japan have been raving about KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities. In an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, a scientist (“The Seeker”) is convinced that there exists a hidden world – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. Out of his curio cabinet steps a collection of otherworldly characters made up of world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, handpuppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians. Together they turn the Seeker’s steampunk world upside-down as they are guided by an energetic gypsy jazz, electro swing soundtrack.
“KURIOS is the most enthralling, consistently over-the-top magical show
Cirque du Soleil has sent our way in a long time.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“Astonishing. KURIOS inspires wonder, awe, excitement and suspense.”
The Los Angeles Times made it a Critic’s Choice
