Have had a fantastic stay - great performance of a weird and wonderful samba band while waiting for the best fireworks I have ever seen and the amazing Cirque du Soleil! And all free .....

“Cirque Du Soleil”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I wasn't sure what to expect with this and to be honest, we just went to it because it took up an hour before The Image Mill started. As it turns out, this was much better than the Image Mill! For a free show, it was pretty spectacular. There were all kinds of different acrobats and I was constantly afraid that one minor mistake would result in a disaster! We were sitting on the steps, which were very uncomfortable, so bring something to sit on if possible. You can also stand and then the show is going on around you, but we were too tired from 3 days of walking Old Quebec to stand. But regardless of our discomfort, the show was amazing.

“Cirque du Soleil = fabulous!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Definitely see the free summer performances of Cirque du Soleil at Agora. Perfect for families with kids. Be warned, the free seats have a significant number of standing room only. You don't even notice your feet though because you are so enthralled!

“Fabulous...and Free!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Went to see the free Cirque du Soleil show and it was well worth the waiting. We got in line around 8 PM and they opened the gate at 8:45. The weather was perfect and the show was fantastic. Great acrobatics and fun music.. Cannot believe it was free! Go if you have the opportunity!

“Great venue”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

I caught the free Cirque du Soleil show here when on a summer stay. It was an unseasonably cold night so I think that limited the crowd, but there were still a good number of people there. It looked like the VIP seating wasn't really all that great of a deal as most people managed to find a seat on the Agora steps with better views of the action.

The show itself was not to be missed. It might have been a free show, but it had nearly all the splendor a large Cirque extravaganza.
