Cirque du Soleil show in Long Beach

LONG BEACH - Cirque du Soleil's newest arena show, "Quidam," will perform at the Long Beach Convention Center for eight performances, April 20-24."Quidam" had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in 1996. Since that time, the show has toured on five continents and been viewed by more than 10 million people. "Quidam," with a cast featuring 52 acrobats, musicians, singers and characters, began a tour of North American arenas last December. The production tells the story of a young girl named Zoe, whose parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world - the world of Quidam - where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul. Tickets to see "Quidam" are $45 to $95 for adults; $32 to $77 for children 12 and younger; and $36 to $81 for military, seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling (800) 745-3000.
