Hear the ECHO resound

There’s nothing quite like seeing a Cirque du Soleil show in its hometown, under the big top in the picturesque Old Port of Montréal. The buzz in the air is simply magical! We’ll all get to experience that again starting on April 20, 2023, when the Cirque unveils its new show ECHO in a world premiere.

Directed by Mukhtar Omar Sharif Mukhtar, ECHO is Cirque du Soleil’s 20th big top show. Three years in the making and written by renowned storyteller Es Devlin, it’s a tale of evolution as seen through the eyes of a female protagonist named Future. As Future and her friends navigate the phases of evolution, they test the precious balance between humans, animals and the world we share and learn how their actions have the power to shape the world. Inspired to collaborate, they come together to rebuild our planet piece by piece. ECHO invites the audience to participate in a universe of colour, wonder and endless possibilities.

ECHO will push the values of connection, inspiration and the power of intention,” says director Mukhtar. “We have the ability to create and manifest the world we want to live in, if we all put our collective minds together and encourage a movement that is pushed by the youth of today.”

Get your tickets now to witness this high colour spectacle full of hope, twists, magic, poetry and daring acrobatics made all the more amazing with an innovative use of technology. And get ready for a memorable big-top experience in spring.
