“It has been nearly two years since then, a long time in which all the artists and workers who are part of Cirque du Soleil have been waiting impatiently to be able to meet the public again,” a spokesman for the Canadian company said.

“This is the moment we have all been waiting for,” said Daniel Lamarre, president and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. 

In the past, the circus has presented 14 different shows in 19 Spanish cities. 

In more than two decades, 9 million spectators – in Spain alone – have attended its shows, with more than 3,500 performances.
