Although this week, Covid has once again swept through New York City, inspiring all kinds of cancellations, I’m still (cautiously) excited about new live performances. Today, I’d like to talk about the newest Cirque du Soleil show, ‘Twas the Night Before… The show reimagines a Christmas classic, the 1823 poem ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore, in signature eye-popping Cirque style. It’s the troupe’s first holiday show, and I’m excited to see what my favorite performers are up to.
“Join Isabella, a curious girl, jaded by the craze surrounding Christmas, as she is whisked away to an upside-down, inside-out world of the poem where she meets colorful characters of this timeless classic. ‘Twas the Night Before… is a flurry of love, Christmas cheer, rip-roaring fun and hugely lovable characters that will become a new tradition for families to cherish. Discover what happened before Santa dropped in!”
The show is appearing in cities across the U.S. through December 27. And if any of you go see it in person, I’d love to hear what you thought!
You can learn more about the show and hear the full soundtrack on the Cirque du Soleil website.
