Cirque du Soleil on iTunes

Cirque fans rejoice – Cirque du Soleil music is now available for download through Apple’s iTunes Music Store! The first wave of available music, released on February 15, 2005, features music from Dralion, Quidam, “O”, Alegría, La Nouba, Mystère and Saltimbanco, as well as the selected remixes from Tapis Rouge and the new Le Best Of Album. Tracks for Varekai, Zumanity and the earlier Cirque productions (Le Cirque Reinvente and Nouvelle Experience) are not available online at this time.

All tracks are priced at $.99 each or you can purchase the entire album for $9.99. All titles mentioned are available to purchase as full albums except Alegría, which must be purchased as individual tracks. Three of these albums are introduced with new cover art: Dralion, Quidam and Saltimbanco, and at least one of these features new music (see the next news title).

It is not yet certain whether we will see this new cover art on tangible copies of these albums in the future, but we are encouraged to see Cirque du Soleil embrace the music download world through iTunes in the United States.

iTunes is available for both the Macintosh and PC environments. You can download the iTunes software now through Apple’s website – .
