What is Cirque Du Soleil – Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities about?
In an alternate yet familiar past, a Seeker discovers that in order to glimpse the marvels that lie below the surface we must first learn to close our eyes and trust our imaginations.
In his larger-than-life curio cabinet, the Seeker is convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world, a place where the craziest ideas and grandest dreams await. A collection of otherworldly characters suddenly step into his makeshift mechanical world and jump to life one by one before his very eyes.

Cirque du Soleil KURIOS — Cabinet of Curiosities to make European Debut at the Royal Albert Hall
Cirque du Soleil KURIOS — Cabinet of Curiosities is set to have its European premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London in 2023. The show opens on 13 January 2023 at the Royal Albert Hall, playing until 12 February 2023. Book tickets for Cirque du Soleil KURIOS — Cabinet of Curiosities here. Taking aesthetic inspiration from the Victorian era and 19th century industrial revolution, KURIOS—Cabinet of curiosities weaves jaw-dropping acrobatics with artistry and humour. Featuring never seen before acts, KURIOS is a mind-boggling escape from reality, unveiling a festive, steampunk-inspired universe where the unexpected lies at every corner. The run of KURIOS marks the 26th year that Cirque du Soleil have performed at the Royal Albert Hall, first debuting there in 1996. The hall has installed permanent technology to accommodate Cirque du Soleil’s shows, and this year have strengthened the steelwork beneath the stalls to accommodate even bigger Cirque shows. Michel Laprise, Writer and Director of KURIOS, said: “KURIOS was an absolute joy to create. Inspired by one of the most creative and forward-thinking periods in time, the second half of the 19th Century, we created it with inventiveness in mind as a way to celebrate life and bring people together more, with the intention that the audience would reconnect with the optimism and the feeling that everything IS possible. During the creation period, we were already dreaming of the day when KURIOS would arrive in the iconic setting of the Royal Albert Hall as they are meant for each other. We’re so excited to perform the show’s European Premiere in London! The Royal Albert Hall has always been an incredibly special home for Cirque du Soleil in the UK and we’re proud to be celebrating its 150th anniversary with KURIOS, our Cabinet of Curiosities!” Craig Hassall, CEO Royal Albert Hall, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Cirque du Soleil back to its London home, the Royal Albert Hall. This long-running partnership has consistently captivated audiences over the last 26 years and we cannot wait to see the steam-punk themed production they have in store for us with KURIOS. Cirque du Soleil are renowned for creating immersive experiences with their performances, and it is an honour to have them here, marking their European debut of KURIOS in this historic venue.” In an alternate yet familiar past, KURIOS steps inside the mechanical lab of an inventor convinced that there exists a hidden, invisible world—a place where the craziest ideas and the grandest dreams await. Once the inventor succeeds to unlock the door to this world of wonders, time comes to a complete stop and an uplifted cast of otherworldly characters invades his curio cabinet, bringing his makeshift creations to life one by one. As the visible becomes invisible and perspectives transform, KURIOS bursts into a celebration of the power of the imagination. KURIOS premiered in Montreal in 2014, and has entertained over 4.5 million spectators in 30 cities worldwide with over 2,000 performances brought to life by its cast of 49 world-class artists.
