Published to celebrate twenty years of the international phenomenon that is Cirque du Soleil, this is the first retrospective of the circus and theatre experience that has beguiled and bewitched audiences worldwide. This is the story of Cirque du Soleil - its origins, its struggles, and its victories -- told by the artists themselves. In a chronological survey, in words and in pictures, ranging from the first modest official performance in 1984 in the small Quebec town of Gaspé to an entertainment powerhouse in 2004 with a host of touring companies around the world as well as resident showcases in Orlando, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada, this book charts a brilliant journey of creativity and imagination, of challenge and adventure.

Lavishly illustrated with more than three hundred photographs, "20 Years Under the Sun" covers all the Cirque du Soleil productions, including the nine currently running. Moreover, it details Cirque du Soleil's transformation and innovation of the circus experience, and it reveals the thoughts and dreams of the creative personnel, and how those dreams came to life on the stage.

Condition: Fine in Fine dustjacket. (Click on image above for close-up of front cover).
