“Be mesmerized by this extraordinary avant-garde spectacle as it makes the impossible, possible!”

On December 23, 1998, La Théâtre, the custom-built theater for Cirque du Soleil opened in west side of Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney area. This theater was built to showcase the La Nouba show, which is still being performed to this day. The outside of the theater was built to resemble a white circus tent; the inside of the theater has a mechanical stage with several movable parts, including platforms and movable glass cages. The show La Nouba (translated means “the party”) has more than 65 performers from 15 countries creating a dreamlike atmosphere for the audience.
