Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour Cancels Two Performances

Cirque du Soleil has canceled performances of its Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour on November 16 at the Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, Oregon and November 20 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, according to a report in The Oregonian.

The reason given for the cancellation is the amount of time it takes to set up and tear down the show for its various touring engagements, which is longer than originally anticipated.

The show combines dance and music to immerse audiences in Jackson's creative world, giving a glimpse into what might have inspired his work. The piece is performed by a company of 60 international artists and feature Jackson's powerful, inspirational music and lyrics.

The choreographic team includes Travis Payne, Rich and Tone Talauega, Debra Brown, Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo, Jamal Sims, Cloud and Tamara Levinson, and Mandy Moore.

The creative team for the show also includes Guy Laliberté (creative guide), Chantal Tremblay (director of creation), Mark Fisher (scenic design); Zaldy Goco (costume design), Kevin Antunes (musical director), Martin Labrecque (lighting design), Olivier Goulet (projection and video content design), François Desjardins (sound design), Scott Osgood (rigging and acrobatic equipment design), and Germain Guillemot (acrobatic performance design).
