Skipping This Summer, Cirque du Soleil Unveils Tysons Show for 2021

Cirque du Soleil was planning to bring “Alegría” to Tysons this summer, but that show is now suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and a different one will come to the big top next year.

Cirque du Soleil announced today (Monday) that “KOOZA” is set to come to Tysons next summer. The show will run from July 21-Sept. 19, 2021.

“Cirque du Soleil has had to suspend all its shows and pause the touring schedule temporarily,” according to the press release.

More about “KOOZA” from the press release:

A return to the intimate and fundamental human elements of circus, KOOZA combines thrilling acrobatic performance with the art of clowning. We follow The Innocent as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a comic kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and out-of-the-box surprises.

Presented in a colorful mélange, KOOZA springs open like a bejeweled toy box to capture the audience’s imagination and set their pulse racing. Sheer human effort — performance in its rawest, purest form — is showcased in all its splendor and fragility.

KOOZA is an eclectic mix of characters and rich set that draws the audience into Cirque du Soleil’s fantasy world. The show features 50 acrobats, musicians, characters and clowns from 15 countries, showing more than 1,200 pieces of costume in one single show. Along with a live musical performance on stage, KOOZA ensures a “once in a lifetime” experience.

Since the show will no longer go on for “Alegría,” ticket holders can expect to be contacted by a Cirque du Soleil representative via email with details on how to redeem and exchange their tickets for “KOOZA.”

Tickets for “KOOZA” in Tysons start at $44.
