Barbara Anderson, finance columnist for the publication Milenio, speaks in her column "Nada personal solo negocios" ("Nothing Personal, Just Business") about the show center for the famous Cirque du Soleil that will be built in the Riviera Maya.

Grupo Vidanta, run by top Mexico hotelier Daniel Chavez Ruiz, is building the only Cirque du Soleil theater in Latin America. The famous show was created by Guy Laliberte, who is also partnering in this endeavor.

"I'm very happy about it, and we will do great things in Mexico," Chavez himself confirmed to the columnist.

The theater will be located in the Riviera Maya, within one of the properties of the Mayan brand, and will cost about 20 million dollars.

"It's 100% a Grupo Vidanta investment, and Cirque will do what it does best in the areas of talent and show development," Chavez pointed out.

The columnist notes that the theater will have a "capacity for 250 people with a unique added bonus: a dinner show with VIP seats for an additional 250 people."

It will also have the capability of adding another 500 seats in the future, giving it the potential for up to 1,000 people.

It's estimated that the performance center will be inaugurated in November 2014, and that the shows will be presented according to "public demand".

"And it won't be the only theater we'll make for Cirque du Soleil. In a few years, we plan to build a second space in Mexico for resident shows, although we're still debating between two locations to make the final decision," adds Daniel Chavez, according to the columnist.

Grupo Vidanta has various hotels and resorts in the Riviera Maya, including The Grand Luxxe, The Grand Bliss, The Bliss, Ocean Breeze, Mayan Palace and The Grand Mayan.
