Events: Cirque du Soleil, Winterfest and More!
posted by: Amber Johnson
Cirque du Soleil presents Quidam on Nov. 7 – 11 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield and on Nov. 14 – 18 at the the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland. Quidam had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. Since that time, the production has toured on five continents and been experienced by millions of people. The international cast featured 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters. Young Zoe is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world – the world of Quidam- where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul. Tickets are available at www.cirquedusoleil.com/quidam or by calling 1-866-461-6556.
