Cirque du Soleil, meaning “Circus of the Sun”, was started by a group of street performers in Quebec in 1984. Guy Laliberte, the founder, received $1 million from the Quebec government to stage a street show for Canada’s 450th anniversary celebration. The show was a hit, and according to Forbes, made a profit of $40,000.
Cirque then took its show around various cities in Canada, before going to the US. It went on to develop several themed shows such as Quidam, Mystere, Alegria, Saltimbanco, “O” and Dralion.
The company currently runs permanent shows in Las Vegas, Orlando, Florida, Tokyo, and Macau, China, and takes its travelling shows to around 250 cities a year.
