Trois-Rivières, April 2, 2015 - Cirque du Soleil will set up shop in Trois-Rivières this summer to present the first show of the Tribute Series: LE MONDE EST FOU. Inspired by the music of iconic Québec band Beau Dommage, the show was specially designed for the new Amphithéâtre Cogeco and promises to be a visually stunning show with great music.
Lead by Creative Director Daniel Fortin, the 75-minute show will bring together 25 artists. Directed by Jean-Guy Legault with contributions by Musical Director Jean-Phi Gonçalves and Set Designer Geneviève Lizotte.
