Cirque Du Soleil’s show Kooza returned to London today – two years after its last five-week residency at the Royal Albert Hall. This time it’s back until 8 February. It won’t be back again as it is being retired after its next stop in Switzerland.
Circus thrived in the Hippodromes of Edwardian London… but why has it disappeared from the West End and Broadway when it is going from strength to strength in Las Vegas? And might it return?
