Cirque du Soleil Presents KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities

What if you could alter reality at will? Would you delve into a world where seeing is disbelieving? Cirque du Soleil is currently on tour putting on a show that does just that. A whimsical, "you won't believe your eyes", steampunk escapade that will have you utterly confused and totally amazed. The KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities show is described as a mysterious and fascinating realm that disorients your senses and challenges your perceptions. The performance will allow you to step into the curio cabinet of an ambitious inventor who defies the laws of time, space and dimension in order to reinvent everything around him. Suddenly, the visible becomes invisible, perspectives are transformed, and the world is literally turned upside down.
KURIOS - Cabinet of curiosities

My mom is a huge Cirque fan. I am also a huge Cirque fan. Anytime we can get to a show, we thoroughly enjoy our experience! So when the tour dates for KURIOS came out we couldn't resist checking out the show. My sister actually had the idea to get tickets for our family as a Mother's Day gift to my mom. Such a good idea! When we gave them to her, she was so excited! We are really looking forward to attending on May 29th. Get a sneak peek of the performance below.

Meet the Characters

Mr. Microcosmos
Mr. Microcosmos from KURIOS
An authority figure, Mr. Microcosmos is the leader of the group. This serious chap is the embodiment of technological progress; his world is sturdy and evokes the steam train, massive building structures, the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais. This is man as a microcosm, running on his own steam and traveling in his own self-contained, self-subsisting ecosystem. Full steam ahead!

Nico - the Accordion Man
Nico from KURIOS
The perfect handyman, Nico is a little shy, a tad awkward, and extremely sensitive. Nico’s accordion costume allows him to bend way down or stand way up so he can be at eye level with absolutely everyone.

The Kurios

These quirky, imperfect and dysfunctional robots are products of the unbridled imagination of their creator.
Klara - the Telegraph of the Invisible
Klara from KURIOS

Klara can receive alpha waves by turning on her heels and pointing her hoop skirt in various directions. She has a language of her own and symbolizes our obsession with telecommunications during the golden age of the railroad when the telegraph and the gramophone were invented.

As you can see, this is going to be one interesting show. The Grand Chapiteau seats over 2,600 spectators per performance. You won't miss it when driving by its temporary home at Suffolk Downs in East Boston. The Entrance Tent and concessions open 45 minutes prior to show time. The Grand Chapiteau opens ½ hour before show time. The show starts on time and latecomers are admitted only during a suitable break in the performance. Late-coming wheelchair-users can only be admitted at the intermission.

Regular tickets start at just $35 and they offer a variety of packages to accommodate any family or special occasion. Definitely check out KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities for more information. And join us as we devour the details of another exciting and spectacular Cirque due Soleil!
