Incredible mix of theater and circus
23 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is along with Dralion the best live show on earth. I can even say that this is a little bit better than Dralion. Cirque du soleil has managed to mix Circus with theater in a way that will amaze you over and over again. The acts are so incredible,and you can almost not believe what you see. The atmosphere is magic and along with an incredible soundtrack which is performed live,this gives you the entertainment of a life time. This show along with Dralion has amazed people around the world and they are both directed by David Mallet,which has done an excellent job. Go see this one if you have the chance or by the dvd.
