Cirque du Soleil - Varekai

Gotta say, if you have the chance to see the Cirque du Soleil - go!!!

Went to see the Cirque a few years ago - Allegria - and I loved it. Had absolutely terrible seats (literally the second row from the back) and luckily we had thought to bring binoculars otherwise we would have been squinting at the teeny tiny little people way far away on the stage but, from what we could see, it was still spectacular. The costumes were stunning, the acrobatics phenomenal; didn't want it to end and swore to myself the next time I had a chance to go I'd be sure to get a way better seat - so I did!

Overall, I'd have to say that Allegria was a better show, but Varekai was still stunning! The acrobatics were phenomenal, the clowns were funny, a bit flat sometimes, but still funny, and I loved how something was happening all the time - whenever I looked away to see something in particular, it seemed liked something new had been brought out onto the stage without me noticing. Even the ceiling was interesting as they had platforms up there that performers periodically went up onto. Never a dull moment!

Only negative that I can say is that the performance really hammered home how I'm about as flexible as a bread-stick and my gymnastics abilities are, well, non-existant ;p
