«Amaluna” will be the new touring show for summer 2015 in PortAventura Resort
PortAventura Resort and Cirque du Soleil have signed a 5 year agreement to establish a summer touring base for the world famous Canadian entertainment company in the resort. The deal envisages that Cirque du Soleil’s big top will stage a number of different touring productions, the first of which will be “Amaluna”, which arrives in Europe for the first time next year.
The partnership began with «Kooza» in July and August 2014, making PortAventura Resort the first European resort to host a Cirque du Soleil touring show. More than 100,000 spectators were thrilled and astonished by Kooza in PortAventura Resort and its success delighted both companies so much that they immediately started negotiations for future touring extended runs
Fernando Aldecoa, General Manager of Operations and Finance at PortAventura Resort, said: «This partnership represents another step in our international strategy to position the resort as the best family destination in Europe, a model like Sentosa Island (Singapore) and Orlando (USA)”.
Charles Décarie, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Cirque du Soleil, said: “Cirque du Soleil is very pleased to confirm a 5 year agreement with Portaventura Resort, and reinforces that Spain, its local public and Spanish fans remain central for our company’s future ”.
Over recent years, PortAventura Resort has opted for a strategy of internationalization and has taken on new projects every year, investing over €125 million since 2010.
