Music
Vocalists & Songs

  To select the 20 songs, a committee of 11 Cirque du Soleil directors and creative minds was convened. They each compiled a list of their top songs from Cirque du Soleil's musical catalogue of over 500 songs. From those, with the collaboration of musical director, producer and arranger Francis Collard and musical content associate producer Ian Tremblay, a final list of music was established.
When the idea of a show centered upon Cirque music came to Guy Laliberté, he immediately thought "urban tribal beat". Those three words have inspired each member of the creative team.
  • "Urban" reflects the society in which we live: modern, chaotic and ever evolving.
  • "Tribal" constitutes the idea of coming together, the hope of escaping one's solitary cocoon and living a powerful collective experience.
  • "Beat" is sound and movement, the incessant rhythm that unites space, individual,
    and society.

As musical director, producer and arranger of DELIRIUM, Francis Collard's principle challenge was to bring a fresh perspective to these 21 Cirque du Soleil hits. In his words, he 'sought to explore elements of surprise in Cirque du Soleil music, to highlight the lyrical and melodic intrigue within the music'. The result is a mix of percussive driven pop and electronic music meet melodious ballad and world rhythm sounds. It is precisely this diverse stream of influences that distinguishes the music of DELIRIUM from Cirque du Soleil's double album Solarium/Delirium. Solarium is an ambient remix of relaxing sounds in contrast to Delirium, which is a more percussive and dance oriented CD. The music in the DELIRIUM tour is decisively narrative in nature, with highly dramatic variations that flow in perfect sync with the event's visual elements.
