Looking ahead to the holiday season? Cirque du Soleil announced in mid-July that the company is debuting an all-new theatrical performance called ‘Twas the Night Before.

This newly announced show is the 49th original production from Cirque du Soleil and is loosely based on the famous Christmas poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” by Clement Clarke Moore.

The show has been described as a “new spin on the beloved Christmas classic as only Cirque du Soleil can imagine.” The performance hopes to cement itself as a must-see occasion for the whole family, and will touch on themes of sharing, friendship and the holiday season.

Yasmine Khal, executive producer for Cirque, described the show as a unique take on a Christmas classic: “a show created to entertain the whole family, as well as a great opportunity for parents to introduce the world of Cirque du Soleil to their children for the first time.”
