The iconic blue and yellow, big top belonging to Cirque Du Soleil opened in Brisbane on the 24th November 2016. This was Cirque Du Soleil’s eighth tour of Australia and our second time watching a show that didn’t disappoint.
What to expect
We had heard this performance was going to be different from others. Kooza was combining acrobatic performance with the art of clowning. Upon hearing this, we were unsure what to expect.
What we encountered was pure entertainment the whole time and a well-balanced show. As we booked well in advance, we were lucky to sit four rows from the side of the stage.
The show had a mix of heart-stopping and unbelievable acts. Double highwire stunts at 25 feet above the stage, the jaw-dropping wheel of death, incredible acrobatics with a unicycle and chairs. The comical displays lightened the mood and added a great energy to the show.
The acrobatics, dance, theatre and live music left you marvelling at how much time, and devotion is spent by the cast and crew in perfecting this fabulous event.
The performance was well choreographed and set up with eccentric, colourful and elaborate custom-made costumes.
It is quite astounding that it was just a small group of street performers who started it all in 1984 and now it has become a major production that’s known all over the World.
There is an intermission during the performance to fill a popcorn bucket or purchase a drink, but be aware the prices of the food and beverages are extravagant.
Cirque Du Soleil Ticket Prices
The Tickets start from $70 per person and can reach into the hundreds for VIP seating.
Granted this is more than you would pay for some other circus performances, however, if you have the opportunity to see a Cirque Du Soleil show you will see the value in the ticket price.
