MUSIC OWL AWARDS3rd – choreography; 1st – for dates

Music Owl Hoot rating: 4/5

Special points: Romance, amazing gymnastic abilities

Best bit: Use of deep pool

If I could change one thing: Cheaper


Cirque du Soleil are world-famous for their gymnastic and dancing abilities, but I was always a sceptical Owl. When I’m in Vegas, why wouldn’t I just spend my time on the slot machines, or in the clubs, or by the pools, or in the shops, or in the restaurants, or at the Bellagio buffet, or at a musical? Why would I go and see some highbrow gymnastic performance?

However, I was completely blown away by the romance of this show and the abilities of the performers. Somehow, the music, the movement and the staging combine to make a beautiful show that should be enjoyable for all, but is especially romantic for dates.
