Fascinating! Watched it 100 times and always see something new
I have not seen the live show but have watched the DVD probably 50 times (because my daughter loves it so much). The music is what makes the show in my opinion. The young girl's voice is haunting. I think I read she's the daughter of one of the producers. I don't speak French so I have no idea what she is singing but it must be about loneliness. (Later, while watching a TV special on the Cirque company, I learned that the lyrics are written in a special language that is completely made up.) The music stays in your head long after you've finished the show. My favorite scenes are the German wheel guy (he's the first act) and the young Chinese girls who follow him. A must see!!
