Cirque du Soleil Return Down Under With 'Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities™'

World-renowned theatre group Cirque du Soleil are returning to Australia from October this year to March next year with their most acclaimed touring show 'Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities™'. Landing first at Sydney's Entertainment Quarter, the production will head to Brisbane's Northshore Hamilton and Melbourne's Flemington Racecourse for incredible and magical nights of storytelling.

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 possibilities are endless. Set in an alternate yet familiar past, in a place where wonders abound for those who trust their imagination, the story revolves around a seeker who discovers that in order to have a glimpse at the marvels lying underneath the surface, we must first learn to close our eyes. In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden world—a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly steps into his makeshift mechanical world. When the outlandish, benevolent characters turn his world upside down with a touch of poetry and humour, his curios bounce to life one by one before his very eyes.

'Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities' had its world premiere in Montréal in April 2014 and since then, critics cross North America have been giving it high marks: "It is not to be missed on any account," said Chris Jones in The Chicago Tribune. "Kurios is the most enthralling, consistently over-the-top magical show Cirque du Soleil has sent our way in a long time," raved Robert Hurwitt in The San Francisco Chronicle. "Kurios is the most joyous piece of theater I’ve seen in years and it will lift your spirits to the stars," said Richard Ouzounian in The Toronto Star. And Misha Berson in The Seattle Times raved, "Kurios thrills in a splendidly captivating new show." The Los Angeles Times made it a Critic's Choice.

Grab your tickets and let Cirque du Soleil's 'Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities™' satisfy your wonders this October through to March next year!
