Didyaknow? – La Nouba Quick Facts

The Press Release detailing La Nouba’s 5 Millionth spectator had some fun facts about the show. To kick off the resurrection of our “Didyaknow” column from Fascination’s monthly publication days, we thought it best to start with those! They are as follows:

  • La Nouba celebrated its 3500th performance on Saturday, May 13, 2006.
  • There are 1730 audio cables running through the theatre. Placed end to end, they reach a total length of 865,000 feet or approximately 164 miles!
  • When La Nouba first opened to the public, it did not feature the Cycles act, which is now an intricate part of the show.
  • The average age of the cast of La Nouba is 31 1/2. Ages range from 10 to 50 years old.
  • The wardrobe department handles over 300 costumes and headpieces every day. Most of the 67 artists performing in La Nouba wear three different costumes per show.
  • Over 1200 lighting fixtures are used for each performance of La Nouba.
