Cirque du Soleil KOOZA: Win Tickets

Cirque du Soleil returns to Vancouver with KOOZA. Under the bright blue and yellow chapiteau at Concord Pacific the performance is described as “an adrenaline rush of acrobatics performed in a zany kingdom”.

Between strength and fragility, laughter and smiles, turmoil and harmony, KOOZA – a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil – explores themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The show is set in an electrifying and exotic visual world full of surprises, thrills, chills, audacity and total involvement.

Kooza will run in Vancouver from July 22nd until August 22nd and regular tickets start at $60. There is also a VIP “tapis rouge” option where you can enjoy a reception before and after the performance. You can use this exclusive link to purchase tickets online.

I happen to have two tickets to give away for the opening night performance July 22nd. As I anticipate this contest will garner many entries, I will not have an option to enter the contest via Twitter (it may flood the Vancouver Twitter airwaves). However, any re-tweets are appreciated.

To enter to win two tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s Kooza please leave a comment on this post stating how you feel about Cirque du Soleil or why you would like to see the show. The winner will be drawn at random July 13th. As this is also a very long-running contest, I will allow 1 entry per person, per week. That way you can triple your chances to win this summer.

Update I am extending the contest until July 19th at 9:00am

Update I have another pair of tickets to give away, which makes four tickets. I will draw TWO winners on the 15th who will each get a pair.

Update My two winners are Laura (comment June 24th) and cassandra. They have been contacted by email however should they be unable to attend on Thursday I will re-draw. Congratulations you two and have fun at the show!

Cirque du Soleil - KOOZA

Update I saw KOOZA last night and it was spectacular! You can read my full review over on TV Week Online.

  260. Tanja T says:

    I have aways wanted to see cirque; this may be my chance!

  262. Steve Benjamins says:

    Ever since ‘Knocked Up’ I’ve wanted to see Cirque de Soleil (minus the mushrooms trip)

  263. Danyka says:

    Never seen a show, but have been told it’s something to see before you die!

  264. Ling says:

    It would be a treat to see Kooza. Have been a fan of Cirque from the very first show.

  265. Michael Kwan says:

    The great thing about Cirque is that it completely reinvented our perception of the “circus.” You don’t need trained elephants and juggling monkeys. The entertainment includes everything from great songs, great acrobats, great clowns, great artists, and great choreography.

  266. ApollineR says:

    I’ve never seen it but I have heard a lot of it

  267. Erin says:

    I have only seen them once, the last time was two years ago when they were in town. Incredible performers, incredible athletes. Win or lose I’m definitely going back for more.

    I’ve seen them once here and once in Vegas — creativity and originality at it’s best. Would love to see them again.

  269. Amy says:

    I’ve never seen a Cirque show and its my birthday!!! Come on!!!!!!

  279. Welby says:

    I have never been to a show, so I am not sure what I feel about Cirque yet…(fingers crossed)

  280. Lynn says:

    Second entry for Cirque du Soleil!

  281. Cirque du Soleil jumpstarts our hearts and enlivens our senses. Its fantastical world of magic showcases local talent as well as gives us all a window of opportunity to dream….of upside-down clowns and beds-turned-trampolines. I cannot wait to see it!

  282. LB says:

    love Cirque! Their colourful tent makes me strangely happy.

  283. Renn says:

    I have never been able to attend a Cirque du Soleil performance but obviously have heard so much about it! Would love to see one live!

  288. tvlife says:

    I was lucky enough to watch one of the previous shows and got totally hooked on these amazing performers…they can sure twist, turn & tumble like no one else!

  289. Siobhan says:

    Cirque would be so much fun!

  290. limekwok says:

    I’ve seen Cirque in Vancouver and Las Vegas, but I love the intimacy of the shows here in Vancouver, best. you really get to see the talent, rather than the set props in a smaller tent. I love it!

  291. Nilly says:

    I’ve never seen a show and I’d love to go!

  292. Natalie says:

    There is no value in life without artistic expression. It may be in the form of dance, music, art, etc. Cirque De Soleil are inspiring and wonderful, leaving everyone catching their breath. I have seen their videos, and would love to see them live. I know it will be a life changing experience.

  299. Joyce Murray says:

  349. Danica says:

    As a kid living in quebec I went to a cirque du soleil show and it changed my life. I wanted to be in it as a career but I was told that as a six year old I was already too old to start training as one of those crazy gymnasts. I dont know if that is true but my dreams were crushed. And now I am too broke to see it when it is coming to vancouver, and my dreams are to be crushed again unless you save them! Please, oh s’il vous plait can I go can I GO?!?!

  350. Aly says:

    I have never seen a Cirque Show, but have heard many great things about them. Cirque shows have been known to capture it’s audiences and to bring laughter, play, and imagination back into our minds.

    Kooza intrigues me as I feel that there are some similarities in the themes (fear, identity, recognition and power) and what is going on in my life right now. It would be amazing to see this show.

  429. Craig says:

    WOW… seems as thought there is a lot of competition here. I love Cirque, like most people. I will tell anyone however, that Cirque du Soleil is the best entertainment in the work for your dollar hands down. There are a lot of great performances to see out there, but none of them leave you breathless regardless of how many times you see it like Cirque does!

    I’ve always wanted to go but have never had the opportunity. I keep hearing amazing things from friends and family, so it’s made me extremely interested in attending KOOZA. Hope I win!

  484. Sheena says:

    I’ve always wanted to see Cirque De Soleil! There’s a girl i went through school with that now performs with them and is in this show I believe. It would be lovely to be able to watch her do her thing.
    Thank you for the contest.

  485. maria says:

    I would love to see the show as i have never seen one before and can’t afford to do so on my own!

  486. Lisa says:

    this will be quite the show πŸ™‚

  487. Larissa says:

    I’ve lived in the Vancouver area forever, and have NEVER been to see a Cirque show. Always wanted to, but have been in grad school lately and had to choose between Bard and Cirque – couldn’t do both. My partner has always swayed me to the Bard side, but it would be amazing to see Cirque this summer.

  488. Jorin Cowley says:

    They seem really cool, and I’ve never seen them!

  489. Robyn Smith says:

    Never seen Cirque – must go!

  491. Tawcan says:

    I’ve always wanted to go see a Cirque show!

  498. John says:

    We (my wife and I) would love love love the opportunity to see Kooza under the Big Top this summer! We’ve seen a few of their shows, both here in Vancouver and in Vegas, with “O” being our favorite of the Cirque shows.
    We are HUGE fans and would be so grateful to win tickets to this show!


  499. Karen G says:

    Never seen Cirque de Soleil and would love to check it out this year!

  500. Heather V says:

    I’ve not been lucky enough to see Cirque du Soleil yet but what appeals to me more than the acrobats and visuals are the makeup and elaborate costumes! I’d go just for that!

  501. Rob says:

    The Cirque du Soleil sounds like an amazing spectacle to see at least once in a lifetime, and I’d love to go! Pick me!

  502. Stash says:

    It’s a Canadian acrobatic masterpiece; it’s a celebration of the incredible potential of humankind!

  503. Gloria says:

    I’ve never been to a Cirque show – would to see one this summer courtesy of! πŸ™‚

  504. Mike says:

    rebecca, i want to go to cirque de soleil because i never been to one before. I think the cirque dd Soleil is one of the best acrobatics performances in the world, and everyone should see it at least once in their lives. This is what i think after seeing the previews in the ads over the internet and TV. They come regularly to vancouver but i never had a chance to see them, so i hope to win tickets this time and see the performance with my dad!

  505. Laird Cossar says:

    Have seen the Cirque on TV but I’m sure it can’t compare to seeing them live . Taking my wife if I win! Would make for a great birthday outing.

  506. Allways wanted to see a show, one day.

  507. Scott Ward says:

    I have a little girl, 9, an aspiring gymnast who ADORES Cirque and would love to go. Hell, I’d love to take her πŸ™‚ I’ve only seen them once before, but they were truly AMAZING!

    Many thanks for the opportunity,


  508. Leigh says:

    Saw Cirque a few years ago, and was blown away. Would love the chance to see their magic again!

  509. Kevin says:

    i would love to take the wife to see the show, she always wanted to see them perform. it would be a great make-up bday gift for her since we were both sick on her actual bday and couldn’t do anything special.

  510. Cirque shows take me to another world. I come out of the tent a new person – younger, happier. more childlike. The world looks more magical, more colourful, more beautiful. Thank you Cirque du Soleil!

  511. Sajeda says:

    I’ve never seen a Cirque show in Vancouver and would love to – I’m sure it’d be an amazing experience!

  512. Stephanie says:

    I have never been to a Cirque show in Van only Vegas so I would live to win!

  513. Chris says:

    I missed out last year, and with my current bank account lows, I won’t be able to go this year. I’d love to go. Pick me please!

  514. Carolyn says:

    My teenage daughter performs with CircusWest ( and adores Cirque du Soleil. It would be awesome to surprise her with tickets to a Cirque show.

  515. April says:

    I’ve had always, always wanted to see Cirque du Soleil because it seems like an absolutely magical and breathtaking show. Being a poor student I’ve never been able to afford tickets so winning some would be amazing! πŸ™‚

  516. Chrystal says:

    I went to Vegas a few years ago and couldn’t afford tickets to Cirque there (or here). I would love to be able to see it in town!

  517. bekki says:

    Entering again…

  518. Shari says:

    Would really love to go!

  519. Lia says:

    I’d love to go! Thanks for the contest!

  520. Kim says:

    I mentor a 12-year-girl who LOVES performance arts. Her family is down on its luck but her spirit is fierce. We often check out plays and performances and pretty much anything artistic we can get our hands on.

    Thing is as much as I love the brightness it brings to her face, I simply can’t afford to keep taking her to all of these shows.

    I want her to have amazing and inspirational experiences that make her heart thump and the hairs on her arms stand up. A performance of Cirque De Soleil will do that. And in turn it’ll warm my heart.

    We promise to send you a story of why we loved it so much and why we are so grateful to have won the tickets.

    Oh, and to scream your awesomeness from the rooftops to pay you back for all this good karma.


  521. Marga says:

    Would love to get me those tickets! thanks

  522. Janet says:

    I would love to win tickets. Thanks for the contest!

  523. Zeljko T says:

    Have been getting into the theater scene more the last few months and this would be an amazing show to see live. Missed the last live Cirque show when they were in town last time so it would be great to go this time. Cheers.

  524. beccaloo says:

    I love the fantasy, creativity and athleticism of cirque du soleil. I have never seen one of their shows live but would love to catch this one!

  525. sue n says:

    one more shot at winning the draw!

    there’s something so fascinating about the cirque’s performances, and all the performers are so talented as well…it truly is a memorable experience to watch them live. I had the chance several years ago to catch the Saltimbanco show in London (ON) – it was awesome. I’m hoping to bring my husband along for the Kooza show if we win πŸ™‚

    Rebecca, thanks for giving everyone the chance to win the tickets!!

  526. Andree says:

    4 years ago I came from the Netherlands for 2 weeks to visit my girlfriend who lived in Vancouver. This was our 1st summer together. For her birthday I took her to Cirque du Soleil. It was the 1st time seeing Cirque du Soleil for both of us and it was great. We still have good memories about our 1st short summer together and specifically our night out to Cirque du Soleil.

    Now 4 years later we’re living together here in Vancouver. We would live to see Cirque du Soleil again!

    Many thanks for the opportunity

Makes me proud to be Canadian and know this creative energy started here.

  546. Gloria says:

    Cirque Du soleil in the heart of vancouver is what gets me excited to be a Vancouverite.

  565. Nina K says:

    Cirque du Soliel just takes my breathe away when I have seen bits of it featured on tv. I can only imagine what it would be like to see it live. My BF feels the same way!

  566. Annie says:

    I was born and raised in Quebec (the city) and was one of the few lucky people to see their first show. It must have been around 1984. In Le Vieux Port de Quebec… I remember my mom telling me we were going to see a circus show but with no animals. It was a strange idea as at the time, circus shows always had animals. At least that’s what I thought. I remember loving it! I’m ashamed to say I have never seen them again since. Except for their free outdoor show in Quebec city last summer, when I was visiting my family. So winning a pair of tickets would be really special to me… πŸ™‚

  567. Bobbie says:

    Cirque du Soleil–can’t think of a better way to spend a couple of hours

  568. Arleen says:

    My daughter, Katherine, said that if there is one thing she would like to see this summer it is KOOZA, so I thought I would enter and if I will present her with these two fabulous tickets for her and her boyfriend. Thanks for the great contests and good luck to everyone.

  569. FlyingNurse says:

    I have been taking circus training sessions off and on for the past 18 years. It is amazing to see how the professionals execute the moves quickly and seemingly, effortlessly. I would love to see Kooza

  603. miso says:

    i’d love to win!

  604. Laila Pera says:

    I took my niece to Saltimbanco a couple of years ago in Victoria. Would just love to take her to Kooza as well, but it’s a ferry away and with the tickets – makes the cost too high for us.

  605. Sara says:

    I’m glad you enjoyed Kooza as well! I just saw it lastnight and it was the first time seeing a cirque du soleil show and I loved it so much!

  606. Disappointed says:

    I know that people everywhere are wild about Cirque du Soleil, and I was too until I had an incredibly negative experience with them. I feel obligated to publicize it wherever possible, for the sake of myself and the others who were affected by it.

    I was assigned to work for them by a temporary employment agency during their stay in Vancouver. I was excited about working for such a world-renown company. To my great disappointment, I found they are a terribly managed company that treats their employees (at the least the temporary ones) extremely disrespectfully. They over-hired in my department and found excuses to fire nearly 20 people out of the 46 originally signed on without giving any warning or explanation. They caused many of us to suffer a financial set-back and a lot of frustration.

    They do not communicate well with their employees and expect way too much. We were asked to remain available 40 hours a week and given maybe 4-8 hours a week.

    I will never be going to see a Cirque du Soleil show. They are a corrupt company with far too much money and ego.

    I am warning any one who reads this never to work for them, and if you can help yourself, do not support them. The shows may be incredible on the surface, but the tickets are grossly over-priced and I can only imagine (as I have heard rumours) how badly their performers are treated. While Guy Laliberté promotes his One Drop campaign, his company is abusing its employees and making millions of dollars that I highly doubt are going to the right places.
