Cirque du Soleil is bringing Lionel Messi-inspired show to Doha

If you’ve lived in Doha for a while, you are probably already a football fanatic. And if you have even the slightest inclination towards captivating acrobatics, you’re in for a real treat.

Qatar National Tourism Council has partnered with Cirque du Soleil to bring an incredible new production to Doha - based on Arentina and Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi.

Messi 10 is an immersive experience which combines classical circus acts such as trampoline, trapeze and tightrope artists with never-before seen disciplines, audio-visual material and videos highlighting Lionel Messi’s best moments, as well as exclusive images produced for the show.

It tells the story of a young man with boundless ambition who overcomes all obstacles to become one of the greatest football players of his time.

47 Artists from 19 different countries will take you on a euphoric 90-minute thrill ride that brings together the electric atmosphere of stadiums and the intimacy of theatre.

The show will take place from February 27 until March 7 at Ali bin Hamad Al Attiyah Arena, organised in collaboration with Alchemy Project Entertainment. Tickets go on sales starting Wednesday January 15.

Messi 10 comes to Doha as part of a limited tour through Barcelona, Buenos Aires and other Argentinian cities.
