I want to live inside of Cirque Du Soleil’s IRIS. Steve and I saw the show on January 10th and our jaws were heavy and our minds were blown. I can’t even begin to describe what a wonderful night we had!
I love all Cirque shows. It’s honestly like watching the most brilliant, bizarre, and beautiful dream. I’m not kidding when I say I would live inside of IRIS if I could. I’ve always been fascinated with the 1920′s and IRIS gave me quite a whimsical insight! I also love the old circuses (hence my bridal shower) and even just the giant Ring Master’s on the side of the stage were getting my heart to pitter patter. I’m telling you… this show couldn’t have been more perfect.
Here is a video from their website (yes, I just watched a bunch of these videos on youtube to try to re-live the show) to give you SOMEWHAT of an idea. Trust me though, the video hardly does it justice. The best part about these shows is that there is something going on in about every quadrant of the stage and it’s so frustrating watching a video of it because the camera can only capture one angle at a time. I really really encourage you all to go see it. Skip out on Starbucks for a month (Steve would never agree to this) and save those pennies! It’s worth it. I promise.
A little advice: never sit floor level at a Cirque Du Soleil show. There is too much to see and too much to be missed when level with the stage. We sat in the first row of the mezzanine and it was the perfect view!
SO! Have you ever seen a Cirque show? What’s your favorite????
AAAAANNNNDDDDD of course there are instagram photos to go along with this post!
