MEXICO CITY, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cirque du Soleil, a leading entertainment company, and Grupo Vidanta, a leading developer of world-class resorts and tourism infrastructure in Mexico, today announced plans to introduce a new brand of cultural and culinary entertainment to Mexico and Latin America. Housed in a custom-designed theater now under construction in Riviera Maya, the first-of-its-kind intimate dinner and spectacle will be Cirque du Soleil's first resident show operating outside Las Vegas or Orlando.
"We believe the entertainment offerings for our region's guests and visitors should rival any in the world," said Grupo Vidanta founder Daniel Chavez Moran. "Through our partnership with Cirque du Soleil we will deliver an entertainment experience beyond what currently exists in Mexico or the world in the Vidanta Theater in Riviera Maya. This entirely new category of entertainment will be an experience one must see, hear and taste. We are extremely proud to bring this dream to life."
"This is the marriage of two creators of unique entertainment and world-class experiences," said Daniel Lamarre, president and CEO of Cirque du Soleil. "We were asked four years ago by Grupo Vidanta to imagine something different, something new, something unprecedented for this destination. We're excited that our partnership will unveil a new intersection for us between performance and culinary creativity. The setting is the most intimate custom-built theater of all the Cirque du Soleil resident theaters in the world."
The Vidanta Theater in Riviera Maya is a 600-seat architectural marvel planned and built by Grupo Vidanta to house this new and unique Cirque du Soleil production. Grupo Vidanta's chief architect, Arturo Hernandez, designed the theater to deliver a level of intimacy between audience and performance never before seen in a Cirque du Soleil show. World-class dining and champagne service will be integrated with the spectacle.
This unique partnership was imagined to build new tourism offerings in Mexico. The Premiere is scheduled for November 2014. For more information, visit cirquedusoleil.com/rivieramaya.
