Cirque du Soleil has today confirmed the suspension to the start of preview performances of its new Disney Springs show - Drawn to Life.


The show as originally planned to begin on March 20. See the full release from Cirque du Soleil below:

In light of current events, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group announces today the temporary suspension of the start of preview performances of Drawn to Life at Disney Springs which was planned for March 20. This action follows the postponement of numerous Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group shows worldwide in recent days and takes into consideration the most current recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the escalation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

From the very beginning of the new coronavirus outbreak, the Group took rigorous measures to protect its work teams and the public. Our priority has always been, and remains, the health and safety of our artists, our partners, our employees and our audiences. We will continue to monitor and assess the situation to determine when the show previews will start.

Customers who purchased tickets for an impacted performance will be contacted by their point of sale.

Will definitely be getting tickets when we go to WDW over Thanksgiving this year! I remember seeing the advertisements for 'La Nouba' back in the 90s and desperately wanting to go, but had never gotten the chance. Glad Cirque shows are returning to DS!

National Film Board documentary when Cirque was itty bitty back in the late 80s on their first North American tour. https://www.nfb.ca/film/cirque_american_odyssey/

Any idea if they're fully staffed yet for box office and the cirque store? I've been stalking Cirque jobs page for weeks.

The projection mapping in this show will really blow people away. I'm happy to see folks so enthused about this new production :)
