If you are attending the Zaia show in Macau tonight, you can take part in a global Cirque du Soleil celebration, too. The world-famous acrobatic group from Quebec, Canada, which has expanded its franchise to include permanent shows in places like Las Vegas and the Venetian in Macau, has been presenting entertaining spectacles for 25 years.

For all its 18 shows across five continents this evening, red noses will be given to every guest. Indeed, tonight's performance will be a little bit more special as the entertainers will mingle with the audience in a pre-show cocktail party and hand out flashing red clown noses, which everyone will be invited to put on at a specific point during the show.

No doubt, the f?te tonight is also intended to boost visitors. It goes without saying that attendance at the show, and for Macau in general, has been hit hard lately.
