'Sep7imo Día': Record-Breaking New Cirque Du Soleil Show's U.S. Tour
In the tradition of Cirque du Soliel's hit musical adaptation success stories The Beatles LOVE, Michael Jackson ONE, and Viva ELVIS, the Canadian theater company's newest program, based on the music of Argentinian rock band Soda Stereo, has been grabbing attention around the world.

Sep7imo Día, as the production is titled, has been smashing box office records throughout Latin America since opening in Argentina last March, where it was seen by over 530,000 people during a run of fewer than one hundred performances.
Capitalizing on that success, Cirque du Soleil has now announced that it will be bringing the show stateside for a pair of production runs in Miami and Los Angeles starting in spring 2018.
The massive production includes over one hundred performers and technicians, with twenty trucks needed to haul costumes, props, equipment, and the set pieces required to build the custom-crafted stage.
Along with the forthcoming U.S. tour stops, the traveling production has also booked new dates in Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Paraguay.
Specific show dates and ticket prices have yet to be announced, but more information on the upcoming shows can be found on Cirque du Soliel's website.
