Under The Grand Chapiteau

This summer, Cirque du Soleil returns to Brisbane with their most acclaimed touring show KURIOS – Cabinet of Curiosities™ under their Signature Big Top in Hamilton. Tickets are now on sale for the strictly limited season in January 2020.

Written and directed by Michel Laprise and set in the latter half of the nineteenth century, KURIOS is a tale in which time comes to a complete stop, transporting the audience inside a fantasy world where everything is possible.

A "Seeker" and his larger-than-life curio cabinet is convinced that a hidden world exists – a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. And, in a grand spectacle of Steampunk-inspired adventures, a collection of otherworldly characters suddenly step into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humour, his curios jump to life one by one, before his very eyes.

This must-see, family spectacular features an extraordinary cast of 47 artists from 17 different countries, including world-class gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, hand-puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians.

Tickets are selling fast! The Brisbane season runs from Friday 10 to 26 January 2019. Performances will be held Tuesdays to Fridays 8pm, Saturdays 4:30pm & 8:00pm and Sundays 1:30pm & 5:00pm.

Secure your tickets today at cirquedusoleil.com/kurios. Tickets are priced from $80 and early bookings are advised.
