Cirque du Soleil coming to Costa Rica

February 6, 2013

World-renowned entertainers Cirque du Soleil announced on their website an upcoming visit to Costa Rica, likely following a performance in Colombia on March 21.

No official date here has been announced for their show “Varekai,” but the circus group will perform in Lima, Peru, in coming days.

Founded in Quebec, Canada, as a blend of circus art and street entertainment, Cirque du Soleil has become one of the world’s most popular touring shows. It was created by two former street artists in 1984 and currently employs 5,000 people in 10 different traveling shows.

Varekai is a story about a fantasy world located in a forest atop a volcano. A boy falls from the sky and discovers a mysterious and magical world where “anything is possible.”

According to the online daily crhoy.com, the show will be promoted and sponsored by Credomatic and OCESA.

The Tico Times will keep you posted as more news becomes available.
