After more than 8,500 performances, La Nouba
by Cirque du Soleil will close its curtains for good by the end of the year. The Disney Springs staple has been entertaining guests for nearly 20 years. It was the first Cirque du Soleil show to take permanent residency in a city other than Las Vegas.
Since its opening on December 23, 1998, the acrobatic show has welcomed many new acts; the most recent being a pair of comedic clowns, world-famous break dancers and a real life couple skilled in the art of aerial bamboo. La Nouba has been seen by over 10 million guests and will continue to do so until its final performance on December 31, 2017.
“We are incredibly proud of the success that La Nouba has had for nearly two decades,” said Jerry Nadal, Senior Vice President of the Resident Shows Division for Cirque du Soleil in a statement. “We want to thank Walt Disney World Resort for a wonderful relationship over the years. We look forward to announcing what’s next for Cirque du Soleil.”
No word yet on what will replace La Nouba, but due to Disney Springs’ strong relationship with Cirque du Soleil there might be something else already in the works. Stay tuned for more details.
