La Nouba, the Cirque du Soleil show at Disney Springs, is sadly closing on December 31st, 2017, after almost twenty years of performances. I’m absolutely saddened by this news! La Nouba was the Cirque show that got me interested in Cirque du Soleil and strengthened my love for theatre in general. I’ll never forget seeing La Nouba for the first time back in 2008 and being so in awe with the colorful characters and amazing acrobatics. Though, I will admit, the Green Bird character did scare me a little bit… until I saw just how funny she was!
I haven’t seen the newer version of the show, but here’s hoping I’ll get a chance to before the circus of the sun fades into the night. And who knows? Maybe Cirque du Soleil will put on a new show at Disney Springs! Fingers crossed.
