Fodor's Montreal & Quebec City 2014
Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil Review
This amazing circus is one of Montréal's great success stories. The company—founded in 1984 by a pair of street performers—has completely changed people's idea of what a circus can do.
Its shows, now an international phenomenon, use no animals. Instead, colorful acrobatics flirt with the absurd through the use of music, humor, dance, and glorious (and often risqué) costumes.
The Cirque has companies in Las Vegas and one each in Orlando, Los Angeles—but none in Montréal. However, every couple of years one of its international touring companies returns to where it all began, the Old Port, and sets up the familiar blue-and-yellow tent for a summer of sold-out shows.
