I know a few people who never miss a Cirque Du Soleil show if it's in their area (and I know one person who will travel to go see them). Recently, my husband's aunt picked up tickets for us to go see a holiday-themed Cirque. Hurrah! Hubby and I have never seen a show, but we've both been curious.
It ended up being nice, and the kids there just loved it, including our youngest who sat perfectly still, mesmerized by the show for the entire performance.
After the show we took a walk around the facility where the show took place, and it was just fabulous. There was a fireplace the size of a wall when you walked in, with seating right in front of it so you could warm up or wait for the rest of your party to arrive. Of course too, there were decorations everywhere in honor of the upcoming holidays, and they were pretty spectacular too.
And afterwards a small group of us (about fifteen people, all family) gathered at my hubby's other aunt's home, to visit and celebrate the holiday together a bit. I was really looking forward to the trip, but then our little one got sick just prior to the event, so I thought I was going to miss it. I was fine with that, I'd rather not risk exacerbating an illness, or spreading it to others, so I was prepared to stay home with no worries, and was encouraging hubby to go anyway. It turned out okay though, because our son got better a couple of days before and we thought (well, hubby moreso than me, and he turned out to be right) it was okay for all of us to go.
It ended up being a nice trip, something new and unusual to do, and it was fun.
So my question to you is, do you Cirque (attend the performances regularly when they are in town)? Or have you ever been one of the shows? If so, what did you think?
