Brilliant Performances

Cirque du Soleil performances are sheer brilliance, once you start watching you just cannot take your eyes off. Having already been to one of their shows, I can tell you that you will not regret going to their shows.

Each of their shows has a theme. All the performances are based on the theme.

Cirque du Soleil transports you into an imaginary world with ethereal creatures and unique experiences. The sets on the stage are creations by talented artists who breathe magic into each creation.

Talented Performing Artists

The performing artists are extremely talented and are excellent at what they do. Their performances are flawless, sheer poetry in motion. You will be mesmerized with what they do and how they do it. In Cirque du Soleil artists work very hard to put up the very best of shows.

The background music makes the show all more exciting and enjoyable. The music channels the performances on stage and transforms them into a live, scintillating and a brilliant show.

The acrobatic performances are excellent and will have you holding your breath and clenching your teeth in sheer excitement. You will get to see the trampoline, teeterboard, flying trapeze, hand to hand and Russian bars.

Makeup and Costumes

The makeup artists are simply out of this world. Makeup is an essential part of acting. Without makeup, a character cannot come to life. Each character is brought to life by makeup artists using strokes of magic to paint the faces and bodies of the artists.

Costumes are an integral part of the show that adds color and reflects the brilliance of the show. The costumes are designed with the versatile imagination and creativity of the designers. These costumes are created to suit each character in the performance and weave tales of dreams and fantasy into the show.

The dancers of Cirque du Soleil enact stories with fluid grace and style. They draw you into the performance and hold you spellbound.

Death-defying stunts, juggling with fire, balls or rings, leaping in the air, performing stunts are all part of Cirque du Soleil.

Cirque du Soleil is a must watch once in a lifetime show, a show of sheer excellence and brilliance beyond compare.

A visual treat

      Thank you for this about Cirque du Soleil. They are truly amazing artists in the world class. I once saw a documentary about how they got started, their vision and the way they work - I'm sorry I can't remember now who produced or broadcast it - but it was wonderful, moving and very inspiring. Everyone involved works sooooo hard and to such a standard, there is sweat and tears behind the magic, too.

      I would love to see them live one day. In the meanwhile, thanks for this lovely hub that brightened my day and made me smile. Bless you. :)
