The Outrigger Waikiki Beach Comber and Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group announced that Cirque du Soleil is coming to Hawai’i.
Scheduled to premiere in late 2024, the performance will combine Cirque du Soleil’s world-famous acrobatics and innovation with Hawaii’s natural beauty and distinctive culture. Native Hawaiian Aaron J. Salā, PhD, will serve as the creative cultural producer, collaborating with other notable Hawaiian artists, musicians, and dancers to develop the show’s narrative.
Both organizations are working together to establish this opportunity by transforming the 20,000 sq. ft. showroom venue at Outrigger Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel, formerly occupied by Magic of Polynesia on Oahu. Renovation permits are currently being sought to build an approximately 800-seat theater with cutting-edge audio-visual technology. Hawai‘i-based G70 serves as the venue architect, while RLB in Honolulu handles project estimating.
In the coming months, more information about the partnership, the show’s name, creative concept, and ticket sales will be released, with a debut targeted for December 2024.
