Cirque du Soleil's new production, Iris, is the latest in their nearly three decades of world-class shows. The Montreal-based circus troupe has become a synonym for opulent, acrobatic, animal-friendly fun and wonderment since their humble beginnings in 1984, and delighted patrons return year after year, knowing that while each show may be a totally different flight of fancy, each is sure to contain luxurious costumes, daring feats of physical skill, and breathtaking performances--and, of course, cutting-edge sound and music.
The group's latest show, Iris, is a tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema, featuring not only a sumptuous homage to the history of American film but also a totally original score composed especially for the production by the inimitable Danny Elfman. As someone who composed the "Nightmare Before Christmas," "Beetlejuice," "The Simpsons," "Edward Scissorhands," and "Batman" themes, Elfman knows more than a little about creating an amazing score. This latest production from Cirque du Soleil has, unsurprisingly, been receiving rave reviews. Get your tickets today, and experience the magic for yourself!
