bye-bye, dubai: cirque du soleil® must close on sunday february 18
Organisers of Quidam ™ by Cirque du Soleil’s® have announced that the final Dubai show will be on Sunday February 18 and tickets for the last ten performances are now on sale.
Marvin Shaire – CEO of RetailCorp who have been responsible for organizing the Dubai tour, today said that “the final show must be Sunday February 18 at 8pm and Quidam must leave Dubai to open in Seoul, Korea in early March. Mr Shaire went on to say that “this final extension is a gesture of appreciation and gratitude to Dubai for the overwhelming support and response to the show.”
To show their gratitude RetailCorp and Cirque du Soleil have released a Family and Friends Package that will give customers even more enjoyment – if that’s possible. For every A Reserve ticket purchased at full price, RetailCorp will give you the next ticket at half price. This means for a family of four – if you by 3 A reserve tickets you’ll effectively get the 4th ticket free.
The Dubai tour of Quidam has already been seen by more than 85,000 people and has broken all records for live events in the Middle East. The final 10 shows should see attendances reach the 100,000 mark before the show leave Dubai on February 18.
“Cirque’s journey in the Middle East is coming to an end and we urge anyone who hasn’t yet seen the show to join us in this last week before we close on February 18. Our website www.showbizme.com and call center 04 366 22 77 are geared up for the final ticket rush,” said Rob MacKenzie, Tour Director of Quidam.
After the show closes on the 18th, the more than 750 tonnes of equipment used to stage Quidam, including the Grand Chapiteau, staging, sound systems, and costumes, will then be immediately shipped in 55 containers to the show’s next engagement in Seoul, Korea.
