CinemaCon: Cirque du Soleil, Fathom Bringing 'One Night for One Drop' to Cinemas (Exclusive)

One Night One Drop - H 2015

The special event will be broadcast into theaters across the country this summer.

Cirque du Soleil and Fathom Events are partnering to bring One Night for One Drop to select theaters across the U.S. on the evening of June 10.

One Night for One Drop, taped in Las Vegas on March 15, was staged in honor of One Drop, the nonprofit organization established by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte. The show, which raised funds and awareness for global water issues, was a completely original, one-night-only performance featuring artists from each of the eight Cirque du Soleil productions in Las Vegas, alongside guest performers.

“Fathom Events is consistently adding new and unique events such as One Night for One Drop to our cinema offerings. We’re excited to bring this exclusive performance to the big screen while also helping raise awareness for World Water Day,” said Fathom's vp programming Kymberli Frueh-Owens.

One Night for One Drop creator-director Mukhtar O.S. Mukhtar added: “To be able to share this once-in-a-lifetime performance with a larger audience is a dream come true, not just for me, but for the hundreds of Cirque volunteers that offered their talents and support to raise awareness for critical water issues around the world during this special night.”

One Night for One Drop took place inside the Beatles LOVE Theatre at The Mirage Hotel and Casino.

Fathom announced the news on the eve of CinemaCon, the annual gathering of theater owners in Las Vegas that runs April 20-23. During the show, the Metropolitan Opera will receive the first-ever Excellence in Alternative Content award for its groundbreaking The Met: Live in HD series, now in its 10th season.

Fathom is a partner on the Saturday live broadcasts; Fathom CEO John Rubey is scheduled to present the award to soprano Deborah Voigt on April 21. She's accepting the tribute on behalf of the Metropolitan Opera.
