back from Corteo. . . enjoyed it immensely, tho thought the 2nd half (post intermission) had several problems and weakened the overall show.

the "Romeo & Juliet" clown scene brought the show to a screeching halt and just looked messy.

overall a very solid show, that would rank in the top half of Cirque shows, tho not sure it would crack my top 5 (maybe #6 or 7).


the staging and set design overcame some weak acts (the trampoline we've seen done better, but having them designed as beds really elevated it.. and same can be said for the teeter-totter set piece.

some very unique acts tho, the floating "pole" is something we'd never seen before and were really impressed. also the Trapeze done without an actual trapeze (opening of 2nd act). . unique and so very cool to watch.

the giant balloons floating the performer over the audience, bouncing her with their hands was also quite the experience.

I did enjoy the music very much - enough that i bought the soundtrack CD during intermission.

overall? liked it, and would see it again if it comes back thru.

Just bought a pair of tickets to our next Cirque show..... LUZIA. Seeing it Oct.10th in great seats.

All about Mexico. And it's in the Grand Chapiteau which is the ONLY way we like to see these shows.

Except for seeing one Arena venue, for the Avatar-inspired TORUK.
We enjoyed it, but it didn't feel the same as seeing it in the Cirque tent.

This is our 10th Cirque show; 11 for me, having seen ZED in Tokyo Disney Resort back in 2011. :mickey:

^ LUZIA is in town this week! :b And the rest of the month! :b :br And through November!

We're seeing it this Thursday evening. :b :br :b

EDIT TO ADD after seeing it: It was great! The water effects were especially amazing! I had my reserves about what I would call "street entertainment" which involved soccer balls. But that's okay. And one more thing. A "Double Act" they had going, one with a trapeze, and two on ring things that rolled... the focus was split, for myself, to the trapeze artist's disadvantage. I didn't see her changes as much as I was watching the girls on the wheels. That said. NOTE TO CIRQUE: Drop the soccer balls act - split up these two and make them separate acts, following each other. Perfect. :smile:

I like this shot. The focus being on the tent itself, rather than the usual focus of the trees close up.

In just one hour from now, Cirque is streaming a one hour special on Tokyo Disneyland's departed ZED! I had the awesome opportunity to see this show, with the TPR 2011 tour back then, before it sadly closed at the end of that year. Here's the link to the broadcast. Starts at 8pm EST / 5pm PST.

^ I saw that, and it made me wonder what languages is this sing-a-long going to be in?

Not to mention, nearly all the "songs" from all Cirque's shows are not (to me) 'memorable' etc.

But I took and look and listen. It was nice. Loved all the acts in it, and the music as well.
