Disney has shared a new behind-the-scenes look at creating the new Cirque du Soleil show that will debut at Disney Springs in 2020.

Previews for the yet-to-be named show will begin on March 20 2020, and will then officially open April 17 2020. Tickets are on sale now at the official site with pricing beginning at $62 and up to $152 depending on seating.

This original show will be created by Cirque du Soleil and will pay homage to Disney’s rich history of animation, with a vivid story told in a way that only Cirque du Soleil can deliver

I remember seeing it as a kid... The auditorium was pretty large and packed. Then I saw it a couple of years ago... They divided the auditorium in half with a black curtain, cutting out half of the seats... And even THEN, they still had LOTS of empty seats (on two separate showings I saw). I think it was either it's time to retire, or for them to develop a new BMG show.

I only saw BMG once at Universal around 2010? It was good, but not a repeatable show (for me) like Cirque is.

I’ve only seen them in Chicago... how did they sell at universal?

It’s official BMG is out at UOR.

An early concept had a moderate Cirque presence on the South campus. I’m under the impression that Disney fought for them to stay exclusive he they caught wind, drawn to life happened, the Universal project died.

the.dreamfinder27 days ago Wasn’t there talk at one point of a new Cirque show at UNI?

Hey @Benjamin_Nicholas since you appear to be the most "in" regarding Cirque - any movement in Orlando as far as acrobats, practice, etc?

Planned Berlin resident show “NYSA” cancelled.

Got my Cirque ticket refund over the weekend. *sigh*

Just got an email about my February tickets. What I'm understanding is I won't get a refund until up to 30 days after my show date (2/10)? That's interesting...

OK. Did know when it was placed there. I just saw it there.

Those videos are from December of 2019 or early 2020....before COVID.

If rehearsals aren't going on; how is there a video on the Cirque website showing rehearsals?

halltdJan 05, 2021

No one (Disney or Cirque) ever announced a revised opening night since the original in March 2020 (technically April for the official opening) didn't happen. 2/10 was simply the last day not cancelled in advance. It was never an "opening night".
