Cirque du Soleil

Last night I went to Cirque du Soleil. I got tickets for Christmas and it really really incredible for many reasons. For one, the usher guy at our door had Georgia and I in stitches but the talent was really crazy. My mouth dropped open several times and I can remember gasping as performers performed things that people shouldn’t perform. I was incredibly impressed by the size of the business that is Cirqu du Soleil. I was talking to my boss who saw it last night as he got to do a tour of the site and meet some perfomers etc. It takes Cirque du Soleil 7 days to set up the tent etc, and 3 days to dismantle everything. They finish here in Brisbane on Sunday and 10 days later, they start shows again in Perth. It’s enormous. And I loved it.

I was thinking on the way home about a number of wonderful shows I’ve been able to attend over the years and that I’ve sort of forgotten about. I’ve been to countless smaller productions, lots of plays through doing Drama at school etc. I went to Disney Princess’ on Ice — that was pretty cool. Aj and I went to ‘We Will Rock You’ the Queen musical — which is still probably the best production I have ever seen. I saw Mamma Mia and my wonderful friends bought me tickets to Phantom of the Opera for my birthday. I’m so amazed by the talent — but lately I’ve been paying particular attention to the sets. The minds behind the set of Dralion and Phantom is just insane. I don’t know how one’s mind thinks so creatively.

I’m so thankful for talent like this — it helps to make my life intersting.

When they come again — you should definitely go and see them.

What shows have you seen that have you kept you thinking about them — days after it ended?

  1. mmmm i hated the bbc version of cats, then i saw it live – wow! that was amazing, yet the set for cats is really quite simple.

    Of course my fav of all time is Les Miserables, that kept me thinking for days/weeks/months/years… still humming the chunes in my head 10 years later!

  2. Oh I wish I could have seen Les Miserables.. that would have been amazing. I’ll have to see it next time it’s here, or nearby.
