Due To Overwhelming Demand, The Adrienne Arsht Center Extends Miami Run Of Cirque Éloize iD

Now celebrating its Fifth Anniversary Season, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County proudly announces, due to an astounding reception by the South Florida community, the summer blockbuster Cirque Éloize iD will extend its stay in Miami by four weeks. The contemporary fusion of theatrical circus and urban dance will now run from July 26 to September 4 at the Adrienne Arsht Center's Ziff Ballet Opera House.

“Even prior to opening night, South Florida has already shown great excitement for Cirque Éloize iD,” said Executive Vice President Scott Shiller. “In efforts to please the public, we have decided to extend its run for four more weeks, a total of 32 performances, to satisfy the high demand.”

Tickets for the additional Cirque Éloize iD performances will be available to the public as of Friday, June 17. Tickets start at $25 and special VIP tickets, which invite iD fans to become part of the show, range from $75 to $85. A VIP ticket grants an interaction opportunity with members of the iD cast before and during the show. In the pre-performance interaction, VIP ticket holders will have their picture taken. As they watch the show from the best seats of the Ziff Ballet Opera House, VIPs will savor their five minutes of fame while their images become part of the show as they are projected on the stage.

Tickets may be purchased through the Adrienne Arsht Center box office by calling 305-949-6722, or online at

Hailed by the Montreal Gazette as “a thrilling piece of work, full of attitude, energy and invention,” iD was created by Jeannot Painchaud, founder and artistic director of Montreal’s acclaimed Cirque Éloize, and has sold out in Montreal and Toronto. The high-energy all-musical spectacle (there’s no spoken word), features an original electronic score composed by Jean-Phi Goncalves (from the indie band Beast) and Alex McMahon, which features a Spanish-language hip-hop number among other electropop, dance, and vocal tracks. The creative team also features hip-hop choreographer Mourad Merzouki and costumes by Linda Brunelle.

iD is the seventh original production from Cirque Éloize. Since it began in 1993, Cirque Éloize has become a world leader in contemporary circus arts, with almost 4,000 performances in more than 400 cities around the globe to its credit. The award-winning company has enjoyed rave reviews and sold-out engagements at the world’s most prestigious festivals and theatres including Edinburgh International Festival, the Hollywood Bowl, Théâtre du Rond-Point des Champs-Élysées, Sadler’s Wells and the Barbican Theatre.

Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts is located at 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, downtown Miami. For more information, please visit the Arsht Center's Cirque Éloize iD page or
