Cirque du Soleil

Which show is your favorite?

Which have you seen live?

I've seen Quidam, Mystere, Alegria and Saltimbanco with Alegria being my favorite.

How about you?

I love La Nouba. But the clowns annoy me very quickly in all of their shows.

Kà! Kà is stunning.

Actually, OP, "Love" and "Zumanity" both appealed to me.

Varekai was amazing. I saw the early version in Montreal. Anton was maybe 16 or 17 but had such a presence. The flying gay twins were creepy. I actually saw Gareth play one of the lizards after he didn't make the show doing the Icarian games. Costuming was really original. BTW I also think Dominic Champagne is cute.

Based on what's listed, I voted for "O" but I absolutely LOVED Varekai.

Dralion was my first Cirque du Soleil show, so that has a special memory or awe and wonder at this new kind of circus.

Circuses scare me.

Some of them performed at a company meeting. It was out of context and kind of weird. Plus one of the chicks had hairy armpits.

What about the new one "Totem"?

The new movie, Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away, is one extended clip from many of their shows. So go see it and you've seen them all.

Never been to one. Happy with Ringling Brothers, which I can afford.

The Alegria soundtrack is haunting and magical

I remember being so excited watching Circuil du Soleil until one the acrobats came crashing down and hurt his head. It was terribly upsetting as paramedics came onstage and people hiding his body as the show continued on.

It's so pretentious, empty and vulgar. Such portentous nothing, with such noise and flash to disguise it.

If they'd just have the troupe stand around, climb ladders and ropes, and show off their bodies, it would be more entertaining.

Even the names of the "shows" are creepily self congratulatory bullshit.

Nouvelle Experience was the first Cirque show my partner of 28y and I saw. It was a magical day in San Diego: A museum exhibition of Fabergé Eggs assembled from the largest collections in the world, dinner at the Crown Room at the Del Coronado Hotel, and Nouvelle Experience back in Balboa Park. I still love the music from that show the best.

Dralion was my first. I was amazed.

I've seen a few others since. Now it's a bit ho-hum.

Who let the Circus publicist in the back door? Catch him! Catch him! Cut his balls off and let Happy Baby Poo Poo----or whatever the hell that trailer park little girl from Georgia is named, barbecue them and put those balls in the Sketti.
