A new dinner show concept is in the works which combines a Cirque du Soleil performance with a nice dinner and champagne. It will be spectacular. The only issue is you’ll have to go to Mexico to experience it!
Cirque du Soleil features 19 shows at various venues around the world. The new Vidanta Theater in Riviera Maya will be their first dinner-and-show venue. The Canadian-based company states it will be a place where “performance and culinary creativity” meet.
The 600-seat theater is being built and promises to be a very intimate building with a natural pool and the beauty of the Yucatan’s jungle. The theater is located between the Cancun International Airport and Playa del Carmen in the heart of the resort area. It is expected to be complete sometime in May.
This new dinner show concept could easily come to Cirque’s shows in the United States. The Las Vegas and Orlando shows would be a perfect location, however, the large theater size and audience could be a challenge. Since smaller shows and a drastic change in the venue layout would be required, it appears you’ll have to go to Mexico to experience this dinner show. I have my passport – let’s go!!
Currently there is no word on the new dinner show’s theme or how much tickets will cost. The Orlando Cirque du Soleil show is themed La Nouba – the story of all stories, the site of all mysteries, where dreams and nightmares sleep side by side. Attractions tickets generally run from $63 to $150. The Vegas show at the Bellagio, “O” is an aquatic masterpiece of surrealism and theatrical romance. Show tickets generally range from $109 to several hundred dollars (VIP).
If you are looking for an intimate Orlando dinner show, Capone’s Dinner & Show offers the best show in a smaller theater setting. Raving reviews keep this dinner-and-show concept alive and well after more than 20 years. The show and cuisine are not advertised as “exquisite,” but rather “good, plenty, affordable and fun.” I highly recommend it. No need for a passport, just a secret password to enter the theater. Fun!
