A little history. Cirque du Soleil means "circus of the sun" in French. The company is currently based in Montreal, Canada and it is the largest modern circus producer in the world. It was originally founded by two former street performers, Guy Laliberte and Gilles Ste-Croix. Today, Cirque du Soleil produces over a dozen shows including those that travel to major cities.
The April 3rd streaming special opens with AMALUNA that depicts a mysterious island ruled by goddesses. Thrill to daring aerialists and a very creative gymnastic bar routine performed to striking, original music. The program continues with scenes from the whimsical show, BAZZAR that has an energetic display of acrobatics and dance. This show also highlights Cirque du Soleil's fine use of props with a hoop routine and a stunning fire baton solo. The presentation concludes with pieces from the show, VOLTA inspired in part by street sports. It opens with a graceful aerialist who performs an unbelievable act suspended by the bun on top of her head. A segment by daring cyclists tops off the show.
