POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCES

Quidam continues to capture the hearts of North American spectators, adding two new cities, Denver and Houston, to the tour. On the other side of the Atlantic: After five years of touring, the curtain falls on Saltimbanco at London's Royal Albert Hall, marking the end of a two-year European tour (February 1, 1997). Fresh from its Asian tour, Alegría takes on Europe. And Cirque du Soleil joins forces with Pomp Duck and Circumstance, an original dinner-theatre show. Due to expansion Cirque opens up four regional headquarters: the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe (Amsterdam), and Las Vegas.

Cirque sets new benchmarks with the birth of a multimedia division - Cirque du Soleil Images (replacing Télémajik) - and the announcement of two monumental projects: a feature-length film (Alegría) and a large-format (IMAX) film, which will feature performances by various Cirque du Soleil artists in natural and historic sites around the world.
