Cirque du Soleil, three magical words to me. I watched my first Cirque du Soleil show "Quidam" years ago and have been a major fan ever since. I attend every show that comes to Miami, seen "La Nouba" in Orlando and the Vegas shows are next on my list. When I was given the opportunity to see "Amaluna" here in Miami a couple weekends ago, I didn't even think twice. JC, Amberly and Gian had never gone and Adrian went once when he was a toddler so I knew that this would be an amazing opportunity for the whole family!
On the morning of the show, I didn't tell anyone where we were going. I picked out some "fancier" outfits (I do take the opportunity to dress up my kids any chance I get) and got everyone in the car. We drove up to SunLife Stadium and they were wondering what the blue and yellow tents were. We parked and quickly got to our seats. The stage was amazing and everyone was getting super excited!! I knew the show would be full of surprises and I wasn't let down. As soon as we sat down, the performers started walking around in their incredible costumes. One of the performers came near us and sat next to Amberly. She just stared back in awe. The makeup, the costumes, it's just so perfect! Then the drumming began, the lights dimmed and it was showtime!!!
AMALUNA invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. The queen directs her daughter's coming of age ceremony in a rite that honors femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values form one generation to the other.
Each Cirque show is completely different from the other. This was the first show I saw with so many female characters. I think about 70% of the case member's were women. As usual, the acrobatics were AH-MAZING. My whole family was wowed by the amazing things these performers can do with their bodies and without a net to catch them! The acrobatics get even more incredible with each show. My kids were in awe. I don't want to give away too much from the show but our favorite character was the reptile man and his out of this world juggling!! In my opinion, a Cirque du Soleil show is worth every single penny you pay for it. There really is nothing like it!
