"Cirque du Soleil is a family favorite of ours".

Past shows based on real people have included "The Beatles Love", "Viva Elvis", and two derived from the work of Michael Jackson.

"As a world leader of live entertainment, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group is becoming the go-to creator of original content and experiences for the world's top brands", says Jonathan Tétrault, President and Chief Operating Officer at Cirque du Soleil.

Lionel Messi's life in football will be recreated on stage by arguably the world's most famous circus troupe, it has been confirmed.
