Cirque du Soleil

Probably one of the most amazing theatrical experiences of my life!

Desney took all of us out to the Cirque du Soleil for my birthday present. The show they are performing this year is Saltimbanco. We had great seats and the kids were overjoyed. Basically it was in a big circus tent in the Bois de Boulogne.

Driving by the camp site in the Bois de Boulogne on the way to and from brought back strange old memories...

The show was just indescribably amazing. A true show with dancing, beautiful music in a nonsensical and intentionally incomprehensible language, amazing lighting and a small play running throughout like a thread pulling the show together.

Intermittent throughout were amazing circus acts. All human (no animals) and all physically amazing.

Just plain magical.

Walked out with T-shirt, DVD, CD, mugs, red noses and various other expesive paraphernalia.

A great time was had by all!
