On Sunday night I went to see Cirque du Soleil currently in Seoul. What a magical experience the Cirque du Soleil performances are. The whole set-up is so surreal that one is quickly spirited away into an other-wordly experience. It's not only about people doing "acrobatic tricks", it is everything: the costumes, the lighting, the music, the décor, the fantasy inspired plot. It's a grand theatrical extravaganza that is dificult to explain if you haven't seen it. This was the second time for me to see a Cirque du Soleil performance. The previous time was in 2007.
If you have never experienced circus at its best, I highly recommend putting a Cirque du Soleil performance on your bucket list.
