In just a few months, the first Cirque du Soleil show based on a Latin American artist/band will debut. After putting on shows inspired by the lives of The Beatles, Elvis, and Michael Jackson, the Canadian entertainment company announced more than a year ago that it’d be telling Soda Stereo’s story through highly acrobatic routines. In that time, information about the show, Septimo Día, has come out little by little, meaning you may have possibly missed something. Thankfully, the folks over at Hunters – who reminded us to be thankful the show isn’t based on Maná – summarized what we can expect in a funny, short video.
According to Hunters, it’s the first Cirque show where a portion of the audience will stand. At every performance, 2,100 people will stand and have the opportunity to directly interact with the show. The Cirque performance will tell the story of a young person who wants to change the world. Septimo Día’s a collaboration between Stereonauts Zeta Bosio and Charly Alberti, and Cirque. But even fan interactions will make their way onto the stage.
Naturally, Soda’s songs will play throughout the show. But while looking for old song recordings, the band found versions of songs that were never released.
Septimo Día makes its official debut on March 9, 2017 in Buenos Aires. And eventually, it will make its way to Lima, Santiago de Chile, Bogota, CDMX, Guadalajara, and Monterrey. Check out the video below for more details on the show:
