Cirque du Soleil plans multicultural Pan Am Games opening ceremony

Posted by PanamericanWorld on June 11, 2015

Cirque du Soleil says the opening ceremonies for July's Pan Am Games will be one of its biggest shows ever.

TO2015's opening ceremonies are set for the evening of July 10 at Roger's Centre — which will be known as the Pan Am Ceremonies Venue during the Games — and all 50,000 tickets have already been sold.

Bastien, a director with Montreal's world-famous circus, is remaining tight-lipped about what fans can expect, but did say they've been working on the show since 2013.

"We love to keep a surprise," he said.
