Fascination! Newsletter | Issue #64 – May 2009

Bonjour et bienvenue! Greetings and welcome to another addition of Fascination!, the Unofficial Cirque du Soleil Newsletter.

If you’ve been with us over the years you know our publication schedule has been inconsistently consistent, adjusting from monthly to quarterly to bi-monthly over time as we modify our involvement with Cirque here behind-the-scenes. And with this issue in-hand you may have noticed yet another change: it’s not a bi-monthly issue. That’s right! With Cirque du Soleil announcing more and more
projects, and further reaching out into online social communities, we’re accelerating our publication in the interim to bring all the news and updates of these exciting new projects to you!

We’re re-dedicating ourselves to Cirque du Soleil and with that direction we have re-vitalized our efforts to cover all-things Cirque. We’ve expanded and heightened our ITINÉRAIRE section, separating out the many tours into their four general categories: Touring (in the big top), Arena (in the dome/stadiums), Resident (in theaters), and Seasonal (those performed for a limited time). With new shows of all four types on the horizon, sharing said information will become even more complicated (and confusing). With this change we hope to make the listings more clear.

Our news, rumors, and sightings section – CIRQUE BUZZ – will continue to remain the same with all the news updates posted to our website for the prior month reprinted here, just in case you missed a headline or two. And, of course, our FEATURES section will continue with expanded articles, reviews and highlights of the many facets of Cirque du Soleil, just as they always have. In fact, this issue we’re covering OVO, Cirque du Soleil’s newest touring production!

But we’re very excited to point out a new column: OUTREACH.

Since September 2001, CirqueClub has provided fans around the world with a unique connection with their favorite circus: Cirque du Soleil. Fascination! has, throughout the years, followed Cirque du Soleil’s initial public outreach with excitement. Now that Cirque has expanded beyond its normal outreach at CirqueClub into the social networking scenes at some of the more popular hangouts (Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, and Flikr), Fascination! is committing itself to bridge the various byways to these networking sites filtering and compiling the most interesting tidbits from all these sources into one place: right here!

Check out the issue today!
