We left our villa at 6pm, in plenty of time to get to the Cirque Du Soleil for 8pm so we would make the pre-show. We got their early enough to stop by the Magic Shop so Jordan could get the trick that he decided on - the invisible deck - before getting in line for the doors to open…

The doors opened to the elevator that we took up as I had an ECV, and a very nice gentleman who ran the elevator started chatting with us about the show, the picture at the back of the elevator and whatnot… He explained to us the La Nouba is about a romantic dream of a housewife.

We exited the elevator, was directed to the door to go through and we were seated in section 103, row H, seats 10, 11, 12, and 13.. Dead center, the row just before the walkway… Perfect!

It didn’t take long for the pre-show to start, which was directly behind us… In fact, the 2 clowns made my father a part of the pre-show.. Hahahahah!!! [SPOILERS AHEAD] There is a part in the pre-show where one clown “blows his nose” into the other clowns hankie and he shakes it out over the heads of my father and a pre-teen or teen boy. The other clown proceeds to wipe the young boys head and whatnot and moves on to my father like he is going to wipe his head (he is bald on top), my father makes a face, the clown acts scared and gives a questionable thumbs up sign and my father half laughed and gave him the thumbs up back… You really had to see it as I cannot completely describe the reactions and whatnot…. It was quite funny! [SPOILERS ENDED]

The clowns do a few more things for the 15 minute pre-show and it then moves into the show….

At the start of the show the performers come out and walk across the walkway directly behind where we were sitting.. One of them, the girl in the colorful costume with glitter on her face and nose, grabbed onto the back of Joe’s seat and started “talking” to me… Not in words, but sounds, as the only words that are in the show are in the songs that are sung by the vocalist… Otherwise there was music, action, and some vocal sounds…

The show was something!

It was really indescribable… To see it, and see it in person… There were so many different things going on at once…

There was stunts, dancing, moving about, acrobatics, acrobatic dancing, non-vocal acting, and just so much more…

The total show, made up of several performances by many different artists, was moving and beautiful… I would highly recommend it to anyone. The ticket price is high, but worth every penny… If you can afford to go, go
