MONTREAL — The Cirque du soleil says it will tour Russia this year and has clinched a partnership for next year with the Kremlin Palace Theatre in Moscow.
"Saltimbanco," the Cirque's signature arena touring show, will travel to four major Russian cities in 2011.
Craig Cohon, vice-chairman of Cirque du soleil says the acclaimed circus troupe has also signed a major deal with the Kremlin Palace Theatre to bring a new show to Moscow.
The show, named "Zarkana," is budgeted at $57 million and will premiere in 2012.
It will only be shown on two stages, at the Kremlin Palace and at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
Cirque du soleil has been in the Russian market since 2008 and the new efforts are part of an expansion.
It will also premiere two other shows this year, including the Michael Jackson-based "The Immortal World Tour," and "Iris."
