25 Years of Cirque du Soleil

My hubby and I recently returned from Las Vegas where we saw Cirque du Soleil’s aquatic spectacle, O. We must have said “wow” about two dozen times during the show, awestuck by the artistry and just how flexible the human body can be.

On June 16, the Montreal-based company will celebrate 25 years of pushing the limits of imagination and entertainment. Fortunately, if you want to experience what Cirque is all about, you don’t have to venture all the way to Vegas. If you live in the Toronto area, you can actually “interact” with Cirque as part of Luminato’s closing weekend June 12 to 14, culminating in a free, finale performance at 9 p.m. on the 14th. Cirque will also be touring Eastern Canada for the next several months with a new creation (coincidentally, its 25th) called OVO which is described as headlong rush into the secret world of insects.

My girl will be five soon—which is the recommended viewing age for most Cirque performances—and I can’t wait to take her to one.
