Cirque Du Soleil has come a long way since its simple beginnings in 1984 with 20 street performers from Quebec, Canada. Now it has grown to an expansive circus with over 1,300 performers and shows all over the world.

Cirque Du Soleil has always amazed its audience with its acrobats, clever themes, props, live orchestra and costumes. With 19 shows currently running, there is something for everyone.

Looking for something dark and mysterious? Zarkana is a rock opera that tells the story of a Magician that loses his power and how he regains it again.

Explore the tropical rainforest with the show Varekai that showcases acrobats dressed as powerful birds and follows a human, Icarus who discovers a world of animals.

For adult audiences, there is Zumanity that illustrates burlesque style acrobatics in a cabaret setting.

Cirque Du Soleil has even created shows after music icons such as The Beatles and Michael Jackson-both of which top our list. The Beatles Love show takes fans back through the history of their music and journeys through the colorful twists and turns of songs like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and Strawberry Fields Forever. Michael Jackson One and Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour are a must see for MJ fans. Both of these shows bring the hits back like “Beat it” and “Black or White”.
