Twas The Night Before ( stylized as 'Twas The Night Before...) is an Cirque du Soleil seasonal show. Twas the Night Before is a reimagining of the classic 1823 Christmas poem A Visit from St. Nicholas or commonly known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore. It is the second winter-themed show/event for Cirque Du Soleil with the first being Wintuk and the 49th production since 1984.
