Cirque du Soleil’s 15th anniversary performance of La Nouba included a “magical moment” with Mickey and Minnie Mouse on December 18.
La Nouba opened to the public on December 23, 1998, and was created exclusively for Walt Disney World. Cirque du Soleil and Walt Disney Imagineering worked together to design the stage and the theater.
It has an international cast, and more than 20 percent of the original cast is still performing with the show.
La Nouba has performed more than 7,000 shows in its 15 years, and hopefully will for another 15. It is one of my favorite Cirque du Soleil shows.
If you want to see it, there are seats as low as $69 for select shows through the end of this month.
If you’d like to see Cirque du Soleil‘s fabulous La Nouba show in Orlando, you can take advantage of a 20% off promotion on tickets through September 14, 2013.

One of my favorite theme park shows in Orlando is Cirque du Soleil’s La Nouba at Walt Disney World. From the amazing aerial work to the humorous clowns, this show just wows me every time I see it.
