Q. WHO RELEASED/RELEASES THE CATALOG?

   In the 1980's, Cirque du Soleil's television productions were
   overseen by Telemagik, an in-house production company, and
   released independently. Telemagik filmed and/or released the
   documentaries: "Quel Cirque", "Saltimbanco's Diary", "Illusion
   of Truth: Alegria," "Full Circle," and "Baroque Odyssey," as
   well as the shows: "Le Magie Continue," "Le Cirque Reinvente,"
   "Nouvelle Experience," and "Saltimbanco."

   With the filming of Cirque du Soleil: Quidam in Amsterdam a
   new partnership with Sony Home Entertainment was born (first
   through the Columbia/Tri-Star label, which re-released all
   of the Cirque's catalog to DVD, but more recently with the
   general "Sony Home Entertainment" brand.

   Each new release since Quidam's filming is done through
   Cirque du Soleil's new in-house production company: Cirque
   du Soleil Images (or CDSi for short). They have gone on to
   produce the filming of Cirque du Soleil visual interests since
   1999.

Q. WHY IS LE MAGIE CONTINUE LISTED AT 90MIN/50MIN?

   In 1988, Cirque du Soleil made "Le Magie Continue" available
   for purchase on VHS in its full 90-minute run-time. This VHS was
   available for $29.95. Unfortunately, and it is unclear why,
   Cirque du Soleil considered it necessary to cut-down the show
   for it's DVD release. It is also not clear if a full version of
   this show will ever be released to DVD, but considering its age
   and the missing footage being only a curiosity to fans, the full
   recorded version of "Le Magie Continue" will probably never 
   see the light of day again.
