Easily the most well known and creative circus acts in the world, I saw Cirque du Soleil’s latest show in the nosebleed section of Royal Albert Hall on Friday. Although being in a restricted view and seated literally right at the back, the show still managed to impress me on most accounts. Compared to their show, Ka, that I saw in Las Vegas, I have to admit I was slightly disappointed. Don’t get me wrong – the circus acts are all amazing, the costumes and music spectacular, I just don’t think it was as good as Ka.
Perhaps it was because they didn’t have the ticket people in character welcoming you into the theatre, they didn’t have people in the audience entertaining while everyone was getting seated, and I still couldn’t really work out what exactly the story was until I read their website.
I’d still highly recommend the show to everyone, especially those who’d never seen one before.
