Cirque Invests $57M

Canadian circus company Cirque du Soleil will invest a record $57 million in a new show in Moscow next year to test the ground before launching a permanent show in Russia by 2015, its president said Monday.

"Zarkana" is Cirque du Soleil's first new show in Russia and will be the most expensive non-permanent show the company has ever made to date, Daniel Lamarre told reporters.

Zarkana will premiere at the Kremlin Palace in February 2012 and run for nine weeks.
