Orlando Attractions: Cirque du Soleil

We have been coming to Orlando for many years to see the children’s maternal grandparents and other family, but we have never partaken of the Orlando area attractions like Disney.

But this year, since the children are older, and not so steeped in the world of Waldorf, it seemed like a perfect opportunity.

First we went to see Cirque du Soleil, La Nouba.  We had seen a video of a different Cirque du Soleil performance at a cousin’s house, and were excited to be able to see one in-person.  It was an amazing hour-and-a-half of spectacle of physical feats and acrobatics.  Adam really loved the bicycle acts, where they climb stairs, jump around, and leap over people from a standstill and ride wires.  Zippy really liked the trapeze artists.  And My favorite was the “silk ballet”, which you can see in the clip here — a really beautiful display of strength and skill.

One of the really great things about Cirque du Soleil is that it is completely live, including the music and the singing.  This gives the show a vibrant quality that recorded music wouldn’t allow.  Plus, when the trapeze artist flew out of his comrades hands and into the net, we knew we were seeing cutting-edge stuff.  (He was fine, and climbed back up for the next part.)

This was part of Adam’s 10th birthday celebration.  Tomorrow Disney World!
