Cirque Du Soleil - Season Announced for NYC winter show

If you're a member of the Cirque Club (it's free sign up on the website) Pre-sales ticket are on sale for the new Cirque Du Soleil show A Winter Tale in New York. This show will be previewing November 1-4, 2007 and will open November 6, 2007 and run for 10 weeks - until January 6, 2008

"A young boy lives in a city where the arrival of winter has brought long shadows and intense cold – but no snow!

He interacts with an extraordinary cast of high-energy urban street characters, including skaters, dancers and talking marionettes. But when the snow doesn't arrive, he embarks on a quest with companions to find the snow and bring it back where it belongs.

The adventurers journey to an imaginary Arctic – a world without sunlight – where they encounter the rich culture of the People of the North and extraordinary giant characters made of ice. When at last the sun returns, they fly home on the wings of a giant crane and unleash an epic snowstorm.

The show is playful and full of the exuberance of youth. Above all, it's funny. A cast of 50 artists blend thrilling circus arts, breathtaking theatrical effects, and memorable songs, weaving them into a seasonal, meaningful story that resonates with the whole family."
