The cast of Le Grand Cirque
It was breathtaking. Seeing those thrilling stunts, this show is one for the books.
My generous aunt (who works for the press) gave us tickets for the show (our's was for the December 28 show). At first, I was not that excited receiving it since I'm not used to watching shows. Little did we know (since we live in Bacolod), that Manila traffic is not only worst but the WORST-est. Two and a half hours of travelling from Pasay to Quezon City was the longest and most boring moment of my life (yup, we already made a mental note on Manila traffic). To cut the long story short, we arrived at Smart Araneta Coliseum at 8 pm which was one hour past 7 pm (time when the show starts.) In short, we just witnessed half of the show.
I was a bit hesitant because the show was freaking GREAT! It was one of the best circus shows I've watch. Among of the acts that I witnessed was: ladies balancing themselves on a huge square-like metal frame, a clown putting himself inside a huge balloon, a lady balancing candle lights (since I don't know how was it supposed to be called), a guy playing with fire, etc. I loved how I saw the cast performing at the end, with an adorable snowman! (sorry, Olaf)
Anyways, if you haven't experienced watching circus stunts, then you've gotta watch Le Grand Circque, surely, it will bring you out of this world wondering how do these folks do it.
Le Grand Cirque will be until January 3.
