'Twas the Night Before... by Cirque du Soleil

'Twas the Night Before by Cirque du Soleil is at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square in 2021. 'Twas the Night Before tickets are on sale soon.

‘Twas the Night Before… is an exhilarating new spin on the beloved Christmas classic as only Cirque du Soleil can imagine. This vibrant acrobatic spectacle about the joy of sharing and friendship promises to spark lasting memories in the hearts of children and adults alike. Cirque du Soleil’s first-ever Christmas show is a flurry of love, Christmas cheer, rip-roaring fun and hugely lovable characters that will become a new tradition for families to cherish. Join Isabella, a curious girl who’s become jaded by the hoopla surrounding Christmas, as she is whisked away to an upside-down, inside-out world where she meets characters inspired by the original timeless poem. Discover what happened before Santa dropped in!

Cirque du Soleil presented their family-friendly, world premiere theatrical production in 2019. It was the first Cirque show themed to the Holiday season.
