KOOZA performers will take their final bows this weekend as the traveling Cirque du Soleil troop will take its show on the road to Europe after its five-week stint in St. Petersburg.
Since debuting on Nov. 8 under the big top at Tropicana Field, more than 63,000 people have enjoyed death-defying acts including the wheel of death, high wires and trapeze.
Sunday, Dec. 16 is your last chance to see the show before it heads overseas.
Cirque describes KOOZA as, "about human connection and the world of duality, good and bad,” said the show's writer and director David Shiner in a news release. “The tone is fun and funny, light and open. The show doesn’t take itself too seriously, but it’s very much about ideas, too. As it evolves we are exploring concepts such as fear, identity, recognition and power.”
The show involves 53 performers, and according to the performance's description will involve stunts never performed under the big top.
Shows this week include: Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Tickets start at $43.50 for adults and $33 for children age 2 - 12. Tickets are available online at cirquedusoleil.com/kooza.
