Disney World, Cirque reveal name of new Disney Springs show

December 10, 2019, 3:48 PM · The Walt Disney World Resort and Cirque du Soleil today revealed the name of the new Cirque production that will open in Disney Springs next year.

"Drawn to Life" will begin previews on March 20, 2020 with its grand opening on April 17. The new production replaces La Nouba, which closed in 2017.

Walt Disney Imagineering and Walt Disney Animation Studios collaborated with Cirque du Soleil on the new show, which features moments of Disney songs and follows a young lady named Julie, the daughter of an animator, as she discovers more about his life and work... as well as her own role as an artist.

"For Cirque du Soleil, this is a beautiful way of celebrating Disney’s legacy in the art of animation," Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group President and CEO Daniel Lamarre said. "This new and exciting production is most certainly the best way to highlight the privileged relationship we have with our colleagues at Walt Disney World and our joint commitment to continually bring audiences new experiences that surpass their expectations."

Drawn to Life is Cirque du Soleil's 50th original production. Fabrice Becker is the creative director, and Michel Laprise is the writer and show director. Eric Goldberg has created custom animation for the show from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Tickets have been on sale at the Cirque website, with prices starting at $67 for the previews and $79 for the ongoing run.
