From the first moment, we were captivated and enthralled by the music, the performers, the costumes and the amazing displays of acrobatic excellence. It was absolutely stunning. The timing, the skill, the precision and the sheer beauty of the performance was breath taking. Blending dance, music, song, comedy, acrobatics and storytelling is what Cirque de Soleil does best. From the amazing floor shows, including the teeter totter and the uneven bars, to the death defying aerial stunts, including the hoop and straps, to the unique water bowl act, everything was performed to perfection.
Freddy, who is 7, sat in open mouthed amazement and clapped so hard that his hands hurt! He does both gymnastics and swimming, so the show appealed to him and his love of these elements. My eldest daughter Megan was so inspired, that she has signed up to do an aerial class taster course! We all loved it.
There was a cool, edgy vibe to the production, with the live band, the cool costumes and the sheer energy of the performers. The love story was emotional and beautifully portrayed, and was humorously juxtaposed by the clowns acting out their own love story in their own funny way, with impeccable comic timing and comedy.
I cannot stress how amazing this show was, and I would highly recommend to families and couples alike. It is a magical show that will leave you breathless.
The show runs until October 9th 2016 and tickets are on sale from the website at: www.cirquedusoleil.com/amaluna. VIP packages are also available.
