Cirque du Soleil meaning “Circus of the Sun” is a Canadian entertainment company. It is also the largest theatrical producer in the world and based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
With 20 show currently around the world, each Cirque show is a synthesis of circus styles from around the world, with its own central theme and storyline. Cirque Du Soleil presents a new show in London at the Royal Albert Hall each spring.
This year the show is called Amaluna based on a coming-of-age story and I went to see it last week.
Amaluna is an Island that is ruled by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Queen Prospera directs her daughter’s coming of age ceremony, honouring femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance, and the she causes a storm. A group of young men wash up on the isle, triggering an epic love story between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor.
I won’t spoil the rest of the show for you because you can get still get tickets for the show and I would say its worth. The show is on until the end of February.
I’ve been very lucky to have seen many Cirque du Soleil show and one thing that is always consistent amazing acrobatics skills and new live music. While Amalina is not my favorite show, it is definitely one of the best.
Other Cirque Du Soleil shows I have been to have been include Alegria, Dralion, Quidam, Saltimbanco and Totem.
If you can get see one of these I would totally recommend it, to be honest I’d recommend and Cirque du Soleil show. Click here to see what other Cirque du Soleil shows are on around the world.
If you want to go to a show where you will be mesmerise at the ability of the human body, and leave the show wanting to tell everyone how good it is then Cirque du Soleil shows will not disappoint.
