My family and I had the pleasure of attending this amazing and adorable performance by the acclaimed Cirque du Soleil and absolutely loved every minute of it.
If you know anything about Cirque du Soleil you know that you are going to see a show full of excitement, color and amazing acrobatic, ariels and more!!!
I didn't read up much on the performance. This was our first time watching a Cirque show live and I just wanted to soak it all in. The performance starts really before the show as costumed actors come out and tease the audience with funny gags and pranks to just warm the audience up.
Then as the lights go down, you are welcomed into a fantasy world of insects, bugs and all types of ground loving creatures. The 'ringmaster' of the show is dressed as a colorful bug...perhaps a beetle....who keeps the momentum going throughout the show, along with a fun-loving 'ladybug' and what I imagine is an egg carrying gnat or mosquito....who happens to be in love with the ladybug.
The story sort of lost me in terms of what the Ovo had to do with the storyline....Gnat falls in love with a Lady Bug, while the Beetle taunts and provokes the Gnat while allowing the audience to be amazed by insect world around them???....I'm not sure, but I don't care, the acrobatics, aerials, music, singing, dancing and costumes were amazing!
You're definitely taken in more by the performance and death defying defeats of the cast of characters. That is what this show is really about....simply amazing you and taking your breath away. I was definitely taken in by the spectacle of everything and the bits of humor that were thrown in to keep things moving along.
This show is only playing in the area for a few more days. Ticket prices are very affordable, so it is worth it to check out this show....especially because it's a Cirque du Soleil show!
