A performance by the world-famous Cirque du Soleil and an award-winning musical adaptation of Les Misérables are just two of the entertainment opportunities you won't want to miss during the 2010 RI Convention in Montréal, Québec, Canada, 20-23 June.
Cirque du Soleil will perform a program designed specifically for Rotary International during the closing plenary session of the convention on Wednesday, 23 June.
From a small band of street performers in 1984, Cirque du Soleil has grown into a major provider of high-quality artistic entertainment, employing more than 1,200 artists. The circus has brought wonder and delight to almost 100 million spectators in 300 cities on five continents.
In addition, through a Host Organization Committee (HOC) event on Saturday, 19 June, convention goers will have the opportunity to marvel at the remarkable talent of rising young circus artists by attending the graduation performance of the École nationale de cirque (National Circus School).
A pioneer of the circus renaissance, the school has contributed to the emergence of several circus companies, including Cirque du Soleil.
