Cirque Dreams Holidaze received one of the greatest reviews of all-time. The New York Daily News said the production was “so full of energy it could end our dependence on oil.”
Well, Holidaze won’t solve the world’s energy problems but it will get you and your family into the Christmas spirit. The holiday-themed show combines European-style circus with American circus arts and presents it using Broadway theatrics.
Oh yeah, there’s also a heaping helping of Yuletide cheer.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze stars a myriad of amazing artists performing daring feats of acrobatics, dancing, gymnastics, juggling, and aerial stunts. These performers dazzle audiences with a bunch of props including bicycles, rings, and ropes.

Cirque Dreams Holidaze employs original music as well as some traditional Christmas carols.
Costumes and Sets
Besides the awesome performers, Holidaze employs beautiful costumes and jaw-dropping sets. The stage is adorned with larger-than-life gifts, huge candy canes, and 30-foot tall toy soldiers.
Obviously, the show is designed for the entire family. The daring feats will delight those of any age while the bright and colorful costumes/sets will keep the youngest of your clan stimulated.
Unlike other productions by companies with “Cirque” in their name, Cirque Dreams Holidaze isn’t dark, dreary, or obnoxiously artsy. Furthermore, the shows are held in theatres not tents. For example, in 2013, when the production visited San Francisco, it ran at the renowned Curran Theatre.
Of course, you can’t have a Christmas-themed show without the big guy. Santa Claus is a huge part of the fun of Cirque Dreams Holidaze.
