Michael Jackson's life and music reborn in Cirque du Soleil production

Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL

Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour
Vector Arena, Auckland
October 30 – November 3

The Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour opens next week. This once-in-a-lifetime electrifying production uses Cirque du Soleil creativity to give audiences a unique view into the spirit and passion of the artiste. 

Written and directed by Jamie King, the show includes 49 international dancers, musicians and acrobats. Since its world premiere in Montreal in October 2011, the wildly successful arena production has thrilled audiences across North America, Europe and Asia. It has generated over $US300 million and has been performed to more than two million audience members worldwide.
Last year it was the highest-grossing tour in the US, generating $US163 million.

The show is a fusion of visuals, dance, music and fantasy that immerses audiences in Jackson's creative world.

THE IMMORTAL World Tour takes place in a fantastical realm where the secrets of his inner world are unlocked:  his love of music and dance, fairy tale and magic, and the fragile beauty of nature.

The underpinnings of the show are Jackson’s powerful, inspirational music and lyrics - the driving force behind the show  brought to life with extraordinary power and breath-taking intensity.

Writer and director Jamie King is a multiple Emmy Award® and MTV Video Music Award® nominee and has choreographed some of the most popular music videos and directed some of the highest-grossing concert tours of all time. For the past 12 years, he has served as Madonna's creative director, and most recently directed world tours for Rihanna, Celine Dion, Spice Girls and Britney Spears. King has worked with an array of superstars including Ricky Martin, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Shakira, George Michael, Elton John, Diana Ross and Jennifer Lopez. This is his first show with Cirque du Soleil.

The Huffington Post said of the show “Michael Jackson would have loved his show. It’s big and bright and outrageous. Some of it doesn’t even seem possible.”
