About the Show

La Nouba, French for “the party”, debuted at the resort on December 23, 1998. Since then it has been thrilling audiences for over 7,000 performances. The show welcomes about 1,650 guests 10 times a week. The theater it’s housed in was designed specifically for Cirque du Soleil. Though it resembles a circus tent, inside it’s like no circus you have ever seen.

La Nouba comes to life in an attic of make believe. The worlds of the Cirques (the circus performers) and the Urbains (urbanites) come together to create a spectacular celebration of magic. The bright costumes and visually stunning sets will keep you enthralled in the story as it unfolds before your eyes. Performers will come out into the audience and will make you feel like you are part of the show. The 10 acts are perfectly set to music.


What Makes La Nouba Special

Unlike other circuses, La Nouba tells a story. Each phase of the show is weaved together creating a tale that’s filled with dynamic circus skill, thrilling feats and a rousing musical score. Also, because the theater is its permanent home, it allows the show to perform acts and create sets that they wouldn’t be able to do in a traveling show. It all happens seamlessly in the moment. Having seen other traveling Cirque du Soleil shows, this is a major advantage.
