MONTREAL, Jan. 28, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Building on its worldwide successful projects, 45 DEGREES will harness Cirque du Soleil's creative power to custom-tailor a five-minute opening show for the NBA All-Star Game.
"45 DEGREES is proud to produce a unique performance during player introductions for the 65th NBA All-Star Game, the first ever to take place in Canada. It's a thrilling opportunity to offer the international NBA community and fan base a jaw-dropping, never-before-seen experience, powered by the magic of Cirque du Soleil. The theme, the music, the costumes and the various acts are all designed to celebrate everything that makes basketball great. Our team has created an exclusive experience for all spectators to enjoy.
