Araneta Coliseum houses a lot of world class shows including the spectacular Le Grand Cirque which will be staged on Dec 23 to January 3, 2017.Le Grand Cirque has been dubbed as the new generation Cirque de Soleil and has that Las Vegas style of glamour and excitement . I am a fan of Cirque de Soleil ever since I watched one of their videos on youtube so when I was invited to attend with my niece, I was already brimming with anticipation even before the show starts. So here are some of the highlights of the show from start to finish.
Le Grand cirque was opened by a mime who offered the intermission numbers and the comic relief althrough out the show. He shows up in the most unlikely of places and engage the audience to participate by selecting a random person from the crowd to perform on stage. There was one act of his that got me laughing so hard and it was when he put a giant balloon on top of his head.
The Trapeze artist showed a wonderfully choreographed aerial trick while thrilling the audience with their properly coordinated gymnastic skills.
One of my most favorite performance was the aerialist that was suspended in the air with the aerial cube. The act itself was a kind of art that would have you gripping at the edge of your seat. It was breath taking and mind blowing at the same while the aerialist swing and exchange positions on the aerial cube.
The Dyanamic Divers offered a new definition of jumping on hoops as they increase the level of the rings that they are going to jump into .
The Crazy contortionist had me gawking as she balanced those glasses while bending in the most spectacular way possible.
There was also jugglers, plate spinners and ball throwing ladies who danced and spin while trying to catch their props. The wall walkers did a top notch performance as they bounced up and down the wall with the trampoline. The act does not only end there as the fire breather and flame thrower came out, I literally felt the heat of their performance. Stunning hand coordination as they spin and move with the fire like it was part of their body. There was a lot of balancing acts that garnered scream of excitement from the audience.
The production was on point with the music, lights and also the detailed costumes that was worn by the crew not only it delighted the show goers but also it provided more stunning effect to this awesome show.
If you want to experience a different kind of way to spend the Holiday season, I highly suggest watching Le Grand Cirque as the shows offers more thrilling excitement not only for the kids but for all ages as well.
