Last night I had the pleasure of going to see Cirque Du Soleil Alegria in Edmonton. It was opening night, and we had been dealing with the group for months now as they are staying in our hotel. The show was amazing. These are true artists and masters of their craft. There is a great mix of comedy and true athleticism.
There were a couple of mistakes in the show, and I guess it reinforced how real this all is. One girl fell of her trapez bar. Thank god she was wearing a safety harness. The other time a guy fell off a plank that he was jumping and flipping on.
I love all of the costumes and make-up of the performers in the show. They are so creative and imaginative. It definitely helps to make the show what it is.!
I had 2 favorite parts in the show. The first was a section that was all done on trampolines. The second was the contortionist girls. Wow is it ever amazing how they can move their bodies!
In all the show was amazing! I would highly suggest going if you get the chance. They are in Edmonton for the next 10 days, and it is definitely worth it to see.
