Cirque du Soleil Music Releases

This article covers primarily the music releases by Cirque du Soleil on Compact Disc and not so much the earlier releases on Vinyl (with exception of the newer “Collector’s Edition” vinyl releases) and also not the Audio Tape versions. At least for the albums were Tape Cassette versions always released in parallel with the old school plastic vinyl records as well as with the modern day digital audio CDs.

Covered are not just the soundtrack releases for their resident and touring shows, but also other music releases, such as the soundtracks of the motion pictures/IMAX movies that Cirque du Soleil produced, as well as special remix albums and “Best Of” collections and samplers. Some of the releases are already out of print, but I tried to link to places where you can buy the release where ever possible, even if it meant to refer to secondary market places, like the Amazon.com Market Place, where you still can buy it either used and sometimes even new, from old inventories of specialty music stores etc.

Song Lyrics and Translations

The lyrics of many Cirque du Soleil song are not a real language and entirely made up. The reason for this is that Cirque wants its shows to appeal to a worldwide audience and avoid language barriers. However, there are a number of songs that do have lyrics, some in English, Spanish, Italian or some other language. You can find the lyrics including an English translation for a number of songs at the CirqueTribune.com Wiki. In the case of the show “Love“, where the music is based on original Beatles songs, check out the track list for the show sound track CD below and then see this article of mine with a list of all Beatles songs and links to the lyrics and online video (for some of them).

This is actually a vinyl record release and not a CD. Only about 1,000 records were pressed. If you happen to own one of the few records and could provide some album art for it, I’d appreciate it.

09. Charivari (04:01)

Semi-official soundtrack CD for the old & discontinued touring show “Cirque Reinventé” (We reinvent the Circus) between 1987 and 1990. This album and also volume 2 could be seen as the OST for the mentioned “Cirque Reinventé” show, but also for the two shows before that, “La Magie Continue” and “Le Grand Tour“. In the early days of the Cirque there were no multiple shows touring and performing at the same time like they do today. Back then the shows came one after another, borrowing acts and music from each other, or a sequel or progression so to speak. The concept of creating a show, sending it on the road and running and running and then simply create another show and send that one on the road as well, and so on and so forth, did not establish itself until the creation of their touring showSaltimbanco“, which still tours the world today and was created while the previous Cirque show “Nouvelle Expérience” was still running.

The two additional tracks were recorded live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in 1999, when the show was filmed for the DVD release. The addition of the two tracks is the reason why this release is dubbed “EXTENDED”.

Tracks 12 and 13 were not included in the 1992 release of the Saltimbanco soundtrack. The two additional tracks are live recordings that were recorded for the Cirque internal CD release of the show soundtrack in 1996 (Live in Amsterdam). The addition of the two tracks is the reason why this release is dubbed “EXTENDED”.

Alegría Extended (dubbed EXTENDED) alegria-ost-cd-disc-v1-b
Composer: Rene Dupéré
Release Date: 6/11/2002
Publisher: BMG/CDS Musique Canada

Track List

CD #01 (69:26 min)
01. Alegría (5:47)
02. Vai Vedrai (4:33)
03. Kalandéro (5:16)
04. Querer (4:34)

11. Valsapena (4:06)
12. Nocturne (3:08)
13. Cerceaux (Manipulation) (4:00)
14. Malioumba (Flying man) (4:16)

Tracks 13 and 14 were not included in the 1994 release of the Alegría soundtrack. The two additional tracks are supposedly live recordings from a 2001 performance in Sydney, Australia, when the show was filmed for the DVD release.

I always assumed that tracks came from the Cirque internal CD release of the show soundtrack in 1998 (Live in Fairfax), as in the case of the Saltimbanco “Extended” version, but I don’t own the Cirque internal 1998 soundtrack to start arguing. The addition of the two tracks is the reason why this release is dubbed “EXTENDED”.

Like the previous version of the soundtrack of Varekai from 2002/2003 are non of the tracks actual live recordings from the show. They were studio produced and sound often different from the same songs used in the show. The special edition soundtrack CD set contains a few tracks with actual audio footage recorded from a Varekai live show.

This second “Best Of” album by Cirque du Soleil has the “Best of” already in the title to be more clear and straight forward. “Cirque du Soleil Collection”, the previous “Best of” release was a bit more ambiguous with the choice of it’s title. This album features only tracks from Cirque shows that are still performed and/or touring, including Alegría, Saltimbanco, Mystère, Quidam, Dralion, Varekai, La Nouba and “O”.

 

Saltimbanco (2005) saltimbanco-ost-cd-2004-cirquemusic-disc

10. Il Sogno di Volare (5:13)
11. Horéré Ukundé (5:28)
12. Rideau (3:11)

To make the confusion complete, Cirque released a third (forth actually) version of the soundtrack in 2005. This version has 12 tracks. It misses the tracks “Arlequin (Juggling)” from the EXTENDED version in 2002 and “Urgence” from the 1992 & Extended version of the soundtrack, but includes a newly recorded track titled “Cantus Mélopée”, which is neither on the 1992 version nor the 2002 version of the soundtrack. Got it? :)

If you expect to find much songs from the show on this “soundtrack”, then you will be in for a not so pleasant surprise. The soundtrack was produced and recorded in a studio, many songs from the show are modified beyond recognition, I have seen the show live TWICE and do not recall some of the tracks on the album, however, I do miss A LOT of tracks that I DO remember from the show on this CD. The music isn’t bad, but if you specifically liked the music from the show and want to get the CD for that reason, beware!

The second release of Cirque du Soleil Remixes on compact disc. This time even a double Whopper of two packed and juicy silver discs of almost two hours in length. Okay, they cheated, because the first disc, dubbed “Solarium” is the same as the previously released “Tapis Rouge Solarium” CD. The second (and longer) disc, dubbed “Delirium” (not to confuse with the Cirque show of the same title) is all new material though. The 2nd disc “Delirium” is much faster than the 1st disc Solarium, which falls more like under the category “Easy Listening”. I believe that this was done on purpose, to symbolize the duality of life, or Ying and Yang or whatever you want to call it.

Several of the tracks are remixes of famous Cirque du Soleil songs from other shows. This is not an accident. The acts where those remixes were used were depicting the original acts as well, at least to the extend that you would recognize them, if you are familiar with those original shows. Basically not only the music is a remix, but the act performed was as well.

Singles (exclusively released in Europe)

It is hard for me now to keep track of those. I am originally from Germany, but moved almost a decade ago to the United States. So if you see that I missed any “Single” release by Cirque, please let me know about it, that I can update my list here. Thanks. Why they only released Single CDs in Europe and not in the United States or Canada is not known to me. Your guess is as good as mine.

Yes, Le Rêve is not an official Cirque du Soleil show, but the show that is currently performed at the Wynn Las Vegas was created by probably the greatest directors of Cirque du Soleil, Franco Dragonè, the creative mind behind Cirque shows like Alegria, Saltimbanco, Mystère, La Nouba and “O”. He started his own production company and created this fantastic show.

The music for the show is fantastic as well and was composed by no other than Benoit Jutras, who composed many of the scores for other Cirque du Soleil productions. In my opinion is the soundtrack to Le Rêve his best composition to date.

The soundtrack is not easy to come buy and another reason why I posted it here.

You can get the CD at the gift show at the Wynn Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and that’s about it. I saw some folks selling the CD on auction sites, but completely overpriced.

You cannot buy the album on the Internet, at least not officially. The Wynn gift show does not have a web site to this day, but you can order it over the phone from them and they will ship it to you for a normal price.

Their phone number is +1 (702) 770-3541.
