0420_michael_jackson_cirque_EX_GettyTMZ has learned the executors for Michael Jackson‘s estate have signed a huge deal with Cirque du Soleil.

Co-executor John Branca tells TMZ, the first show will open in fall of 2011 — and will travel throughout North America including the Staples Center in L.A. … the same venue where MJ’s memorial was held.

The show will be heavily focused on dancing — honoring the legendary moves of MJ.  It will also feature Jackson’s songs and have the trademark Cirque du Soleil acrobatics.

In 2012, a second show — in partnership with MGM MIRAGE — will open in Las Vegas which will be far more theatrical with emphasis on technology and 3D. “It will be a theme-park-like show,” says Branca.

Sources say the shows will be worth a fortune to the estate.  Cirque and the estate will split costs and profits 50-50.
