A1F: I wouldn't expect Mystere to go anywhere anytime soon. They're in the process of another refresh (teeterboard was just the beginning. Cube is gone now (replaced with duo aerial straps) and the trampoline is gone. And they seem to have a plan to celebrate their 25th Anniversary in style with even more changes.

But I agree with you about Varekai. Five to six years touring arenas seems to be the limit. So, I would say either late 2018 or mid 2019 it'll come to a close.

There were rumors about KA closing "soon", but, I've not heard them in a while.

I suppose a 'good' thing about La Nouba ending is that I have an excuse to get my boyfriend to see the show. He's said he's 'never had an interest in seeing it', maybe I can use this to my advtange Tongue Out

Richasi, can you give a few more details about those Ka rumors? I'm surprised to hear that -- a revamp maybe, as I'm sure there are some technical elements they could tweak now, but I'd assume they'd prioritize replacing Mystere or refreshing O before touching Ka. Glad to hear you haven't heard anything recent.

Only that KA could possibly close. Nothing new really, but the rumor reared its head about the time the Zumanity and LOVE refreshes were announced and Believe was ending for Mindfreak. I think it's quite safe for now though.

Does anyone have La Nouba contacts that they can ask about performances on the 28th or 29th Dec for me? Trying to book flights etc but need to know if there'll be a show. Also anyone else interested in coming, and possibly doing something backstage (if anyone had the right contacts!)

Not happening. IT will be a new show. Disney and Cirque are still in negotiations.

When are we going to get a confirmed closing date? I've seen December 31st tossed around but that's a Sunday and the show is usually dark on that day. I know its ten months away, but it would be nice to make arrangements in advance to see the final show.

La Nouba is expected to announce its closure this week. So sad!

Why the closing? It doesn't make any sense! A new show is ok, but La Nouba had something magical about it. Why is this even happening?

Low ticket slaes is what I'm hearing. Some people claim it was under 50% capacity on friday nights, which should be a really full show!

So December 31st being the last show? A La Nouba technician today confirmed the rumours are now true. He said they've known for a while but had to keep it secret.

This is a travesty, tbh. But in a city like Orlando, it is hard for a concept like Cirque to pull in crowds night after night for nearly 20 years. I'd rather see the show put out of its apparent misery now than have it limp along for five or ten more years.

Rowelle, I'm going on the 30th or the 29th... not sure which one yet so we can definitely meet up and see if anyone knows any backstage contacts!

Well, it's official... I don't feel like my heart's been broken, I feel like it's been shattered against a brick wall.

There's nothing left, there's nothing right, there's nothing wrong...

Because I live in Orlando, anytime anyone wants to see the show this year, just give me a holler and I'll be happy to go!

everyone's got Facebook right? Cos then we can make an event or something, it'll be easier to communicate there than through spotlight

I need Cirque to announce a new show ASAP. I don't think I can handle all the fools on Disney forums creaming themselves over the prospect of a Disney themed show for the next nine months.

Hahaha, yep. We finally get to move on from the rumor that La Nouba is going to close to fully dive into the rumors of what would replace it when it finally DID close. Oh the fun!

I don't have facebook, but once you guys figure out a plan, please PM me on here or whatever. I'm probably planning on going within the last 2 weeks of December. Mungo, can you recommend any good hotels in the Vacinity that I can start looking into now?

Thanks!

Am I dreaming or did I read somewhere, maybe here, that the La Nouba and Zed theatres are similar? I mentioned this tidbit on a different forum and have been dragged through the mud. Lol. Any clarifcation would be nice.

The interior layout and construction of the theater was similar (seating arrangements, etc), but ZED's theater was much larger - holding 2,170 seats vs. La Nouba's 1,671 seats. So, no, you're not wrong! ;)
