Cirque du Soleil Paramour
In August 2015, the company announced the formation of their very first resident show on Broadway. Titled Paramour, it is staged at the Lyric Theatre and is based on the Golden age of Hollywood. The show is a musical and features ten original songs by composers Guy Dubuc and Marc Lessard. The production’s story revolves around a poet, who has to choose between pursuing love or his art.
Created, written and directed by Phillipe Decoulfe, Paramour is similar to the company’s Los Angeles resident show, Iris, which is also based on the history of cinema. The show’s assistant directors are Pascale Henrot and West Hyler and the production’s sets have been designed by Jean Rabasse. Daphné Mauger choreographs the show’s dances, while the costumes have been designed by Philippe Guillotel. The cast involves thirty eight performers, including acrobats, dancers, contortionists and trapeze artists.
Paramour made its official premiere in May 2016 and has already been critically and commercially successful. Its first six shows grossed over a million dollars at the box office. To watch this latest Broadway extravaganza live, get Cirque Du Soleil Paramour tickets today.
