Fozzie and members of Cirque du Soleil

Founded in 1984, Cirque Du Soleil is a French-Canadian performance art circus.

The Muppets visited the show in the Winter 1989 issue of Muppet Magazine.

Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy introduced a performance by Cirque Du Soleil at the 84th Academy Awards in 2012.


  • A recurring plot in the Muppets' performance at the Just for Laughs comedy gala revolves around Cirque du Soleil being their special guest. Sweetums appears onstage as "Du", as Cirque and Soleil have canceled. Gonzo instead puts on his own act - "Cirque du Poulet" featuring his chickens.


  • David Shiner has worked with the troupe in many capacities.

One of the two choreographers for the Sesame Street Live: Let's Party, Melena Rounis, was a dancer for the Cirque du Soleil show Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.
