Cirque du Soleil is proud to announce its new Big Top show: ECHO, directed by Mukhtar Omar Sharif Mukhtar, based on the original concept of Es Devlin. Development of this new show is currently underway and will be premiering for the first time in Montreal at the end of April. Cirque du Soleil will return to Atlanta as the third leg of the ECHO world tour on November 5, 2023, under the Big Top at Atlantic Station. Tickets are now on sale exclusively to Cirque Club members and to the public on February 6, 2023.
Cirque du Soleil’s 20th Big Top show will bring bold new visuals and a different aesthetic approach. High-level acrobatics will be woven within a striking and disruptive visual universe.
“We are thrilled to announce ECHO, a new Big Top show that will be returning to Atlanta on November 5. Atlanta has always been a welcoming city to Cirque with over 170,000 Atlantans coming out to see Kurios-Cabinet of Curiosities,” said Mike Newquist, President of Touring Shows Division of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. “We’re excited to treat Atlanta and their loyal Cirque fanbase with something totally new.”
Cirque du Soleil brings new and surprising twists to its big top magic with a story about evolution and the symbiotic unions that our future depends on. Poetry, stagecraft, daring acrobatics, and technologies come together in a spectacle exploring the precious balance between humans, animals, and the world we share.
As they navigate the phases of evolution, our main female protagonist Future and our characters learn that their actions have the power to shape the world. Inspired to collaborate, they come together to rebuild our planet piece by piece, creating the world we all want to live in. Fueled by the power of invention, the hope of the youth, and the importance of empathy, ECHO invites the audience to participate in a universe of color, wonder, and infinite possibilities.
ECHO will be presented under the Big Top at Atlantic Station starting on November 5, 2023. Cirque Club members can purchase tickets for these performances online starting today at www.cirquedusoleil.com/ECHO
