When Cirque du Soleil rolls into Tysons this fall, American audiences will get their first opportunity to watch its brand-new show.
The Canadian circus launched the environment-themed production “Echo” on Thursday (April 27) with a world premiere in Montreal.
The show’s U.S. premiere will be at Lerner Town Square (8025 Galleria Drive) near Tysons Galleria — a first for the D.C. area, even though Cirque du Soleil has regularly visited Tysons in recent years.
“The Washington, D.C. region has always been a welcoming and successful tour stop for Cirque du Soleil and we are so happy to start the U.S. leg of the tour in the nation’s capital,” said Mike Newquist, president of the touring shows division of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. “After last summer’s amazing success with Kurios’ run in the nation’s capital, we are looking forward to launching this new creation and giving D.C. fans the first look at ECHO in the U.S.”
The Tysons leg of the tour will begin on Sept. 7 and run through Oct. 22. Ticket sales are now underway, starting at $64, though some package deals for groups and families are available.
According to a press release, “Echo” is directed by Mukhtar Omar Sharif Mukhtar, a performer and choreographer for Cirque du Soleil, and features “never-before-seen acrobatic feats, powerhouse live vocals and an awe-inducing two-story interactive cube.”
Fueled by the power of change, the hope of the youth, and the value of empathy, ECHO follows an inquisitive young woman named FUTURE as she wanders into a fantasy world that explores humans’ sacred bond with animals and nature. When FUTURE and her best friend the DOG encounter a mysterious CUBE, they quickly learn how their actions have the power to shape this world, and if we come together, we can rebuild our planet to create the world we all want to live in.
After Tysons, the show will move to Atlanta in November. No other U.S. stops have been announced yet, but the tour is expected to add more cities.
