Cirque du Soleil’s 'DELIRIUM' returns to the GEC
Cirque du Soleil presents DELIRIUM, its first-ever live arena event, returns to Gaylord Entertainment Center on June 1 and 2. Tickets officially go on sale Monday, March 19 at 10:00 a.m.
Created and directed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, DELIRIUM is a multifaceted event featuring Cirque du Soleil music remixed. Driven by this urban tribal beat and awe-inspiring visuals, musicians, singers and dancers transform the arena into a frenzy.
For the first time in Cirque du Soleil history, lyrics have been created for the instrumental tracks and real words integrated in place of invented language, bringing to the music a poetic dimension. The texts are in English, French, Spanish, Wolof and Portuguese. Robbie Dillon, who contributed texts for Cirque du Soleil’s ZUMANITY, composed the English lyrics for this s.
Also for the first time, Cirque du Soleil musicians and singers will be center-stage as their music will be the driving force of this gigantic event.
Among the musicians lending to this eclectic mix of sounds are percussionist brothersEl Hadji Fall Dioufand Pape Abdou Karim Diouf of Senegal; keyboardist and band leader Ric’key Pageot; Italian-born percussionist Raffaele Artiglieri; and Brazilian Italo-Cuban singer Dessy Di Lauro.
