KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities
Nov. 14, 2014 - Jan. 18, 2015
Under the Big Top, AT&T Park
Those who have experienced a Cirque du Soleil performance know it's a stretch of the imagination that dazzles not only for the feats of the performers but because of the story told. The theme of the current show in San Francisco is KURIOS: Cabinet of Curiosities. Audiences watch as a character, the Inventor, dips into his curios cabinet, sparking an adventure that calls reality into question. Fans of steampunk will especially love the stylized costumes and sets. Acrobats really do fly through the air with the greatest of ease - or so it seems. Their performances are simply jaw dropping.
The show is 2 hours and 10 minutes long with one 30-minute intermission. Some snacks will be available for purchase. The neighborhood is home to some excellent restaurants, so consider going out for lunch or dinner before or after the show. A few to consider include 21st Amendment and Momo's.
Tickets for the show can be bought on the Cirque du Soleil website, and cost between $53 and $135 for adults. There are also tickets for children ages 2 to 12 that cost a bit less. Parking is available for $25 for cars and $35 for buses and oversized vehicles. Only cash is accepted at the lots. You can also take public transportation, including the Muni KT line to Third Street and Mission Rock, or the N line to King and 4th streets. Buses 10, 30, 45 and 47 make stops within a block of Under the Big Top. Muni costs $2.25 per ride plus transfers good for up to 2 hours.
