Pop Goes The Rock By Cirque Dreams will make its Bismarck debut at the Bismarck Civic Center for one performance only on Tuesday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Pop Goes The Rock is the newest musi­cal stage spectacle from Cirque Dreams and the mind of Neil Goldberg, creator of the groundbreaking Broadway hit “Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy” and the famed Cirque Dreams entertainment brand.

This one-of a kind variety show unites generations through a mash-up of celebrated pop and rock tunes that will entertain family audiences of all ages. Cirque Dreams daring aerialists, gravity defying balancers, powerful strongmen and an array of edgy awe-inspiring acts are accompanied by a hip dance crew, cool singers and a jammin’ band per­forming over 20-chart topping hits live on stage.

Goldberg’s stage wizardry blends an international cast of astonishing Cirque Dreamers who transform a car­nival funhouse into a rock ‘n’ roll party that’s movin’ and groovin’ to an origi­nal live band. Music and fantasy ignite the funhouse when Jack pops out of his box and catapults the artists into feats of impossibilities, mayhem and uncon­trollable sensory spectacle that never stops until…Jack’s back in the box. The songs for Pop Goes The Rock are presented and performed live through special arrangements with Sony ATV/ Music Publishing and accompany over 14 variety acts, more than 100 costumed characters, elaborate lighting, special ef­fects and more. Song titles include Call Me Irresponsible, King of the Road, Womanizer, Beautiful, Zoot Suit Riot, She Bangs, The Heat is On, In the Sum­mertime, Let it Ride, Apologize, No More Mister Nice Guy, Never Gonna Let you Go, Like a Prayer, Right ‘Round, Jump (For My Love), Rapper’s Delight, I Love the Nightlife and decades more!

Since 1993, the Cirque Dreams brand has entertained more than 50 million people worldwide under the artistic di­rection of Neil Goldberg. Cirque Dreams shows have appeared in theaters, casinos, theme parks, at sea and on Broadway. Cirque Dreams has garnered critical ac­claim from USA Today, The New York Times, The Associated Press, CNN, the Today Show, Fox & Friends and more.
