This past December, I took my first dive into the mythological world of Cirque du Soleil during Amaluna’s month-long run in Miami. All I can say is “Wow!” As my first Cirque show, I didn’t know what to expect but my excitement grew tenfold the moment I stepped foot into the giant blue-and-yellow-striped tent. I wasn’t alone. Other guests, both young and old alike, were beaming with delight as they scarfed down hot dogs, popcorn, candy and drinks before settling in their seats inside the intimate theater – which, by the way, had no bad seats in the house!
Even before the show started, we were entertained by performers who threw popcorn and messed around with audience members. But nothing could compare to the enchanting production itself, as we were transported to a mysterious island filled with goddesses, athletes, acrobats and musicians who showcased their strength, sensuality, humor and talent. My favorite act featured Miranda, one of Amaluna’s central characters. She bent and contorted her body in ways I didn’t think were possible while balancing on a stick with one hand on top of a 5,500-pound water bowl!
Although some may say resident Cirque du Soleil shows are better than touring ones, one thing is certain: you’ll be left totally perplexed and amazed and wanting to see another one – especially for a Cirque newbie like me!
