Cirque Musica, a world-touring theatrical group that combines music with circus-style performances, will put on its new holiday-themed production at Fiserv Forum on Monday, Dec. 3, the Milwaukee Bucks announced today. 

“Cirque Musica Holiday presents Wonderland” will feature acrobats, aerialists and comedy acts, musically accompanied by a live symphony orchestra playing popular holiday songs. 

“What a great way to tip-off the holiday season here at Fiserv Forum with Cirque Musica Holiday,” said Raj Saha, general manager at Fiserv Forum. “We are really looking forward to this creative spectacle.”

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Monday, Aug. 13. 

The North American tour, which starts in mid-November in Albuquerque, N.M., includes stops in St. Louis, Richmond, Va., Albany, N.Y., Augusta, Ga, and Omaha, Neb. The show is one of Cirque Musica’s four world-touring productions, including “Cirque Musica Symphonic,” “Crescendo,” and “Heroes & Villains.”

Cirque Musica is owned by Allen, Texas-based TCG Entertainment, and is unrelated to the popular Canada-based entertainment company Cirque du Soleil, which performed “Corteo” at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in March.

Construction of the $524 million dollar arena is almost complete. The Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, Aug. 26, will host a grand opening event and block party for the venue, which will be home to the team and to Marquette University men’s basketball, along with a variety of entertainment events
