Its yet another in a dizzying array of BDS fails.
In spite of the bullying of the BDS-ers, who attempted to pressure Canadian-based Cirque du Soleil into cancelling their performances in Israel, the show is continuing as scheduled. The circus troop will present 21 shows in Israel between August 8 and August 25. 72,000 tickets have already been sold, and an extra performance has been added to the schedule. They are opening today at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv.
The world renowned circus began in 1984 as a group of 20 street dancers now includes over than 1,300 artists from 50 countries. This will be the first time the troop has performed in Israel
