Roll up, roll up to Cirque du Soleil's big top, with the acclaimed circus company heading back to Sydney with its newest show. Called KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities, this acrobatic extravaganza steps inside a fantasy world in the latter half of the 19th century. If you think that normal Cirque du Soleil performances test your perception of reality, then you won't be disappointed — not quite believing your eyes, using your imagination and peering beyond the expected is part of the story.

Specifically, KURIOS delves into the tale of the Seeker, who happens to be in possession of a larger-than-life curio cabinet, and also happens to think a hidden world is lurking inside. After world premiering in Montreal back in 2014, the production has been touring the globe since, and now it's setting up shop at Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter from Wednesday, October 2.

The show marks Cirque du Soleil's 35th since it was formed in 1984, and features 47 artists from 17 countries. Basically, prepare to stare and drop your jaw as gymnasts, acrobats, contortionists, puppeteers, yo-yo wizards, clowns, actors and musicians do their thing. Performances will take place on Tuesdays–Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 4pm and 8pm, and Sundays at 1pm and 5pm.


UPDATE: NOVEMBER 1, 2019 — KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities has been moving heaps of tickets, and the season has been extended until December 29. After that, the show will move onto Brisbane. Tickets would make great Christmas presents, we might add.
