Cirque Du Soleil® Congratulates The Uae As Quidam™ Breaks Regional Ticket Sales Record
More than 40,000 tickets have already been sold for Cirque du Soleil® production Quidam™ making it the most successful single event ever to be staged in the Middle East, it was announced today
“We are overwhelmed by the response and support that Quidam has received,” said Rob MacKenzie, Tour Director of Quidam and we just want to say congratulations to the people of the UAE – you’ve set yet another milestone”.
Cirque du Soleil’s production of Quidam is the most ambitious live event ever staged in the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) and with a choice of ticket sales outlets including a dedicated booking hotline and transactional website plus a number of retail outlets located throughout Dubai eager fans have responded in force buying close to 100 tickets an hour.
“To say that we’ve surpassed expectations would be an understatement -- clearly consumers in the UAE had already made up their minds that Quidam is a must-see experience, a testament to the vision of Istithmar, management expertise of RetailCorp and the reputation of Cirque du Soleil,” said Marvin Shaire, CEO, RetailCorp.
Under the patronage of HH Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the TECOM (Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone Authority), the Dubai season of Quidam is being produced in partnership with RetailCorp, a subsidiary of Istithmar, and in association with Nakheel and The Palm.
