Grupo Vidanta Introduces Cirque du Soleil Show at Timeshare Resort
Thursday, February 13, 2014
The Mexican timeshare developer Grupo Vidanta has announced an unprecedented partnership with Cirque du Soleil. The group, known for timeshares such as the Grand Mayan and Mayan Palace, announced plans to build a state-of-the-art theater at their timeshare resort in Riviera Maya for a brand new Cirque du Soleil dinner show.
The one-of-a-kind experience will be the first Cirque du Soleil resident show located outside of Orlando, FL and Las Vegas, NV.
Grupo Vidanta founder, Daniel Chavez Moran shared, “We believe the entertainment offerings for our region’s guests and visitors should rival any in the world. Through our partnership with Cirque du Soleil we will deliver an entertainment experience beyond what currently exists in Mexico or the world in the Vidanta Theater in Riviera Maya. This entirely new category of entertainment will be an experience one must see, hear and taste. We are extremely proud to bring this dream to life.”
The new auditorium will be named The Vidanta Theater and will seat up to 600 people. Grupo Vidanta will construct the theater specifically to fit with the Cirque du Soleil experience. Chief architect Arturo Hernandez designed the theater with a feeling of intimacy between guests and performers. The level of interaction guests will have with the Cirque du Soleil performers is a first for the popular entertainment group. Guests will also experience full-service dining and champagne service throughout the show.
President &s; CEO of Cirque du Soleil, Daniel Lamarre said, “This is the marriage of two creators of unique entertainment and world-class experiences. We were asked four years ago by Grupo Vidanta to imagine something different, something new, something unprecedented for this destination. We’re excited that our partnership will unveil a new intersection for us between performance and culinary creativity. The setting is the most intimate custom-built theater of all the Cirque du Soleil resident theaters in the world.”
The Vidanta Theater is scheduled to open in November 2014. For more information, visit cirquedusoleil.com/rivieramaya.
