Creation on NYSA Discontinued

Cirque du Soleil announced on its Facebook page this afternoon that it would not be opening NYSA on the
Potsdamer Platz in Berlin as planned.

Due to the current situation and uncertainty, we have unfortunately made the difficult decision not to resume the creation of NYSA. We thank you for your enthusiasm and invite you to follow Cirque du Soleil for all #CirqueduSoleil updates.

NYSA was to be a modern tale that followed the story of Nysa, a fearless young woman who longed for adventure and open skies. “Her curiosity and courage will give her the power to step into the unexpected and fly towards new worlds,” the initial announcement stated. “Inspired by youth and its desire to push the boundaries and aspirations for a better future, the character looks to the outside world for a sense of what life could be if she let her imagination soar and if she allowed herself to take risks.”

NYSA was originally scheduled to open on October 28, 2020 but was pushed back to October 27, 2021 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Today it has officially been canceled.
