Let the Fantasy begin!


A group of ordinary people, known as the "Sociaux", wearing monochromatic raincoats and red noses unexpectedly emerge from the mist. They find themselves under a circus tent reigned over by a Ringmaster decked out in a sharp blue redingote and top hat. One by one, they take off their slickers and metamorphose into circus artists!

Following on the heels of their Grand Tour success (1984 and 1985 tours), Cirque du Soleil revamped their young show into Le Magie Continue. With a new title and attitude Cirque set off once again on a tour of their native homelands. This seasonal tour visited a handful of Canadian cities - eight in all. Cirque also had the distinction of being part of the festivities surrounding Expo'86 in Vancouver, representing their Canadian heritage and homeland. The magic and fantasy continued to follow them wherever they went propelling Cirque du Soleil to new heights in attendance and success.

That success also allowed them to take risks - for the first time in Cirque history they extended an invitation to the Chinese government to have a team of its most talented acrobats take part. That invitation grew into the Spining Meteor performance and a life-long partnership with the Chinese arts. Thankfully, La Magie Continue can be seen by fans and spectators alike through home video versions (DVD/VHS). And it is through these media that many fans have been able to see the show for the first time. Now, augment the DVD/VHS release by exploring this section of our web site. Let the Fantasy Continue!
