Wings 11 Jan. 2000
By "binkleysm" - Published on
I have loved Cirque since I saw Mystere several years ago and hoped seeing the 'behind the scenes' photos in Wings would offer more insight into the beauty of Cirque. I was slightly disappointed that all of the photos are B&W. Cirque is incredibly colorful and to leave out the color in the name of art seems almost sinful. The book covers Mystere, Quidam, Saltimbanco, and New Experience, so if you are hoping to see O, Dralion, Allegria or La Nouba, I'm afraid you won't. Even with these negatives, the book is still very interesting and offers up many beautiful images of cirque performers before and after their performances.

The Beauty of Cirque du Soleil 26 Dec. 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on
Let me start by saying that the photography that this book exhibits is fantasticly Cirque. Vial has conveyed the surrealism of some of Cirque's better shows. Mystere being my personal favorite, i immediately began look for photographs from the show. I only found a few, which was a little disappointing. However, other shows are well documented. i have mixed feelings about the use of only black and white prints. Since Cirque is so colorful ot seems strange to leave this important aspect out. However, on the whole the book is a nice brush of Cirque for fans, clowns, or anyone with a spark of imagination.

I'm a professional artist so this book is pure eye candy for me. If you love the circus you will love this book. So buy it! They are in short supply. I think its out of print. Sincerely, Jane - [...]
