Cirque du Soleil Returns to Washington, DC

With its trademark blue-and-yellow Grand Chapiteau CIRQUE DU SOLEIL has returned to the Washington, DC area with a new production, VAREKAI. VAREKAI, which premiered September 16, runs through Sunday, October 24 on the grounds of RFK Stadium.

The word VAREKAI means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies;the universal wanderers. Written and directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil. The celebration officially started on June 16 and will extend into 2005. Cirque du Soleil has thrilled over 42 million spectators in almost 100 cities on four continents.

Don’t miss this limited performance of Cirque du Soleil. Tickets may be purchased in-person at the Cirque du Soleil box office, by calling Admission Network at 1-800-678-5440 or online at
