From a small club based in Quebec, Cirque Du Soleil has grown to become one of the world's most recognised entertainment operations and a $500 million company by 2003. Unlike traditional circuses, Cirque shows did not include ringmasters or animals. By combining traditional elements of circus and the stage, Cirque created a product that helped it to differentiate itself from any other live show and circus.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss how Cirque Du Soleil managed different elements of a show including the theme, the music, the ambience and the costumes of the artists to create a strong brand and thereby attract huge crowds
  • To discuss the company’s plans to branch into spas, restaurants and nightclubs extending the Cirque brand
