Timeless and wonderful.
23 February 2002 | by (Fredrikstad,Norway) – See all my reviews

I never get tired of this show neither do the rest of the people who has seen it,acording to reviews. Everything in this show has a purpose and it is so incredible well mixed together,the music,atmosphere,acrobatic and lighting. Cirque du soleil has made two shows that really stands out and that is Quidam and Dralion.The shows has won plenty of awards and hearts all over the world.They have managed to creat something that you have never seen before. Some of the best acts in Dralion are the "single hand balancing","The juggler" and the "air acrobatic". Go buy this on dvd or see it live,I guarantee that you won't be disapointed.
