Top critical review
early Cirque - a miss
on 28 December 2016
in a word - disappointing.
i bought this as a top up Christmas stocking filler. this dvd was released in 2004 but of a 1987 show, this is an hours worth of Cirque Du Soleil when they were starting out and the footage here is of basically a circus high wire act in all its incarnations but crucially NOT for most of us what i would suspect the state of the art big stadium big show extravaganza spectacle that this troupe have now become. La Circue Reinvente does offer some impressive circus style balancing , high wire feats certainly ,but all with pretty limited small, not even big top show accoutrements of the mega show they now are. high on physical performance close up , low on the later much more entertaining big stadium experience that Cirque are now.
like i said - disappointing and go for the more recent dvd s of this world class spectacular show. not here.
