Free tickets on offer for special Andorra Cirque du Soleil run
20 Feb 2014

The world famous Cirque du Soleil performance troupe is to perform another run of special shows in Andorra, which fans will be able to enjoy for free. 

Between 5 July and 2 August 2014, 17 one-hour performances of 'Scalada' will be put on at an outdoor stage in the capital city of Andorra La Vella, with 3,000 free standing tickets on offer for each show.

'Scalada' was created especially for Andorra last year and combines spectacular acrobatics, costumes, lighting and scenery to tell the story of one of Europe's smallest countries.

Shows will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with 2,000 paid-for tickets on offer in addition to the free standing passes. If you'd like to go, tickets must be booked in advance online at visitandorra.com.

Cirque du Soleil was created in Canada in the 1980s by two former street performers, Guy Laliberte and Gilles Ste-Croix. It has since grown into a worldwide entertainment company, which has performed in more than 270 cities to packed audiences. 

If you have yet to experience a performance but can't make it to Andorra to catch 'Scalada', here are just a few of the other places you can enjoy the thrill of Cirque du Soleil in 2014:

Las Vegas

For avid Cirque du Soleil fans, Sin City is the ultimate destination. With no fewer than eight shows running simultaneously across the city's major hotels and casinos, you could stay for a week and watch a different performance each night if you wanted to. 

London

The British capital is a regular host of Cirque du Soleil's ever-changing line-up of shows. Coming up in June at the O2 Arena is 'Dralion', which will feature elements of traditional Chinese circus. 

Canada

If you want to experience Cirque du Soleil in the place where it all began, the company regularly visits cities across Canada, from Vancouver in the west to Quebec in the east. ADNFCR-408-ID-801695594-ADNFCR
