Storyline

A young woman in a small Mid-Western town goes to a traveling carnival one evening, where she is urged by a silent clown to visit the carnival's circus and see The Aerialist, the show's star attraction. She is entranced by The Aerialist, but during his act he misses a catch and falls to the ground. She rushes to help him, but then the ground beneath them gives way and they fall through into the dreamlike world of Cirque du Soleil. Separated, they travel through the different tent worlds trying to find each other, interacting with the strange and wonderful performers and performances of Cirque du Soleil.

Compilation of CdS's Vegas Shows
23 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and I suppose that's largely true.Worlds Away is an exception. Here, what happens at several of Cirque's Las Vegas shows comes to your theater. Not everyone gets to Vegas. Only Cirque fans see all the shows in Vegas if they get there. (No one can see the Elvis show since it's now closed.) The traveling shows are around, but that's a once a year or two opportunity to see just one show live.

Reading some the reviews, I'm forced to ask; what did you expect?

There's no plot! Well, CdS doesn't need a plot (and generally speaking doesn't have much more in the way of plot in Vegas shows than in this compilation. How can you curate several shows into one compilation and get a plot. I'm impressed that they have a seamless compilation. If you want a plot, stay home and watch Law and Order!

There's great music. Cirque's music is "new age" background to the performances (with the obvious exceptions of Beatles' Love, Viva Elvis, and Michael Jackson's Immortal). Like much background music, it gets lost behind the fabulous performances, the gorgeous costumes, the spectacular sets, etc. Here however, the music works to tie the parts together and it works.

There are great performances...and your seats are up-close and flying around the theaters and tents. I've attended virtually every show with excellent seats and being this close and being in on the action is a treat for me.

It's here. It's closer than either Vegas or a tent site. We travel to Montreal to see the new shows each May. Not every one will do that. Perhaps it'll make it's way to video. (Guy could learn from Michael Eisner that CdS could make a fortune selling DVD/Blu-Ray for the shows once every five to seven years--as the technology advances and as new fans emerge.)

Of course, it's an hour and a half commercial for CdS in general and several Vegas shows in particular. So? Isn't Skyfall a commercial for the next James Bond movie and the DVD library? I hope it is!

No clowns. Guy loves clowns...I think because they are cheap--no sets and lots of competition for the parts. I hate clowns. I'm not afraid of them, but they are creepy and a waste of time.

I won't see it twice this go round, but I recommend it. It'll make you feel sexy.And, Guy, I'll buy the 3D BluRay if you release it.

I've also decided to go back to Vegas soon to see the theater shows again. The commercial worked!
