When the NFL announced that Madonna was teaming with Cirque du Soleil to perform this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, we all thought the same thing: Madonna cavorting with Spandex-clad gymnasts hooked to bungee cords.
But that will not be the case.
In short, don’t expect Madonna to share the stage with actual Cirque performers…
Jacques Methe, Cirque’s executive producer and general manager of events and images said to The Las Vegas Sun…
“Our involvement is a very different kind of thing.
We’re bringing some of our creative people to the process of the staging.
This is really about Madonna.
There will be incredible staging around a new song, and something we have never done before.
But don’t expect a flurry of acrobats.
That is not really what it’s all about.
I can’t say [more]. It’s top secret. But it will be very, very Madonna.”
