THE STUDIO: A NEW HOME

By 1996, Cirque du Soleil has three concurrent shows running: Saltimbanco, Mystère and Alegría. In April, Cirque launches its fourth - Quidam - in Montreal. But Quidam’s launch ushers in a new sound – long-time composer René Dupéré leaves Cirque to pursue personal challenges and protégé Benoit Jutras steps in. He’ll remain with Cirque du Soleil through the end of Dragone’s era, establishing his indelible sound across the Cirque Cosmos. After finishing its hometown run, Quidam heads off on a three-year North American tour.

Meanwhile, Saltimbanco continues its European tour, with stops in London, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Antwerp, Zurich and Frankfurt, while Alegría sets out to tour Asia for a few months. Audiences flock to the Grand Chapiteaus in ever-greater numbers. As its repertoire grows, Cirque du Soleil decides that its artists must have a single home in which to gather, create, rehearse, and dream; therefore, "The Studio", Cirque's new International Headquarters in Montreal, is born. Construction of the Headquarters represented an investment of approximately 40 million dollars.
