    I saw them last year and I thought it was pretty cool from a visual standpoint. The story went right over my head though. Pretty amazing how creative those people are. My wife, who I bought the tickets for, hated it. She wanted to see more acrobatics and not some artistic prop show.

    I went and saw the Quidam show a WHILE back, didn't car for it. My friend who was on shrooms, on the other hand, loved it.

    I saw La Nouba here in Orlando, and I thought it was beautiful. I got the tickets for free from my mom's friend. That's what you do when ticket prices that were once less than 40 bucks are now almost 80. It's sad. But I digress. [​IMG]

    I've been to LOVE in Las Vegas this year in January. It was pretty stunning, from my point. However, if you like Acrobats more than artistic stuff, it's not recommended to watch LOVE. Since it has a theme of the Beatles and all.

    However, if you love the Beatles, then it's a must see.

    I watched Corteo 3 weeks ago.

    Sony was going to release Cirque du Soleil Corteo on Blu-ray, but they delayed it I just got a DVD version. Mainly for behind the scenes footage. The main event is filmed from various angles and quite a close distance. So I thought it'd be worth watching over again since both me and my girlfriend loved it.

    It was worth the high ticket price.

    There's this CdS + Criss Angel performance in Vegas I believe, I wanna watch that too.

    I've never seen one live but I saw one on DVD in Math Class once. It seems really interesting, but I didn't have a single clue what was going on...

    Hehe. My brother got a job in Corteo as a Back-up usher in Vancouver 4 weeks ago.

    He never got called, lol. It's sad, because he's been a huge Cirque du Soleil fan.

    I saw some episodes of their behind the scenes and saw some little of the actual show too, wasnt as high as my expectations due to hype my friend built in me, but they were ok.

    Best part was the focus and سخت گيري they had on each small part and wanted to get best they could, really.

    Their music is so popular too and they release CD's of their shows too.

    that was our very own test84's report from Cirque the Soleil site, Costello, back to you.

    I've seen part of a DVD once. Don't know which show it was. When I went to Sea World I saw Cirque De Mar, that was cool.
