Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba

I think one of the reasons I have been fascinated with anything Circus lately, had been because we recently watched the DVD La Nouba.
When we lived in Southern Utah, we were able to drive to Las Vegas for the evening and catch a Cirque Du Soleil show.
Watching a DVD isn't the same as live, but it's a second best.

This spectacular performance is shown nightly at Walt Disney World.

After viewing the aerial ballet in silk I was ready to run away to the circus.

The Power Track/ Trampoline number provided an amazing closing act!
I'm still trying to wrap my head around the choreography and physical strengths exhibited by the acrobats and gymnasts.
From Wikipedia:
Clowns, trapeze artists,tight rope walkers, music: Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba has it all. They label it the Avante-Garde blend of Circus and Theatre, and yes, it is extreamly innovative.

A few years ago they were in Columbus and set up a huge tent and performed. Totally mesmerizing--costumes, make-up, acrobatics.

I have never seen them perform other than tv and would love to one day.

Ooooh, I love Cirque Du Soleil!!

We are very fortunate to be able to go to Vegas every so often and when we do go, I always want to see at least one show.

My most favorite Cirque performance I've seen is "Mystere" (so lucky to have seen it twice). I've also seen "O" and "Love".

We will be attending the Cirque Du Soleil in El Paso, TX next month. We also saw one of their shows last year. It is indeed spectacular. :D
