Our Cirque Du Soliel Experience - AmaLuna [Pictures]
AMALUNA is Cirque du Soleil's latest creation and currently touring the Seattle area. We found out just before valentine and would have loved to make an anniversary event of it. However, that day's tickets were sold out. We saw it a couple of days ago, and even then, it was still sold out. Totally worth every penny of the ticket price, I loved it.
Cirque du soleil presents contemporary circus experiences, with the traditional jugglers, aerial performers, acrobats, dancers and clowns fused with modern music and a story. AmaLuna is a magical romance, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, and takes place on an island where women (Ama) rule along the cycles of the moon (Luna).
"The daughter of Queen Prospera is undergoing the rituals of her coming-of-age ceremony when a group of young men is caught up in a storm and stranded on the island. Prospera's daughter falls in love with one of the brave sailors, but the two lovers must overcome many trials and setbacks before finding peace together."
It was quite a spectacle, an amazing feast for all the senses. We had an absolutely wonderful time.
You can read a review here [My favorites were the unicycles, followed by the wood balancer he mentioned, and the impish juggler. BTW, I loved that it was mostly women] and see some pictures here.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. I had a great time at my first baby shower yesterday, pictures coming soon. Mwah!
