A rumor we reported earlier this week has been confirmed. Cirque Du Soleil’s La Nouba will close this December.
Disney Parks Blog confirmed the news saying, “With over 8,500 performances to date, La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil has been a Disney Springs staple for nearly twenty years. Since its inception in late 1998, the show has welcomed many new acts; the most recent additions include a duo of comedic clowns followed by a troupe of world-famous break dancers and a real-life couple skilled in the rarely-seen art of aerial bamboo. La Nouba has been seen by over 10 million guests and will continue to dazzle audiences with its breathtaking blend of daring acrobatics and dazzling choreography through 2017, with a final performance scheduled to take place on December 31, 2017.”
Thankfully, that leaves 10 more months to experience this one-of-a-kind production. As for a replacement, I speculated on the podcast my suspicion that Cirque Du Soleil will design another show to fill the space, and the end of the official press release confirms as much. “Wondering what’s next? Given Disney’s strong relationship with Cirque du Soleil over the years, we may soon have news to share about exciting new entertainment coming to Disney Springs…”
For now, we will buy our tickets for this April…and wait for more news.
