The show

Quidam had its world premiere in Montreal under the Big Top in April 1996. Since that time, the production has toured on five continents and been experienced by millions of people.

In December 2010, Quidam embarked on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but now in arenas throughout North America.

The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers and characters.

Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world — the world of Quidam — where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.

Tickets range from $35 to $70 for adults, $28 to $56 for children (ages 12 and younger) and $31.50 to $63 for military, seniors and students.

The BMO Harris Bank Center is at 300 Elm St., Rockford.
