I remember first hearing about Cirque du Soleil a few years back when they came to Beirut but I didn’t give it much attention or bothered to check it out online. Earlier this year, I was attending CES in Las Vegas and we went out one night to watch KÀ by Cirque du Soleil. To be honest, I was told by many friends that it’s a nice show but instead the experience was an unforgettable one. The venue and setup were quite impressive and the show was breath-taking and jaw-dropping! I even wanted to book tickets for “O” but it wasn’t showing that week.
For those of you who are not familiar with Cirque du Soleil, it is a Canadian entertainment company and the largest theatrical producer in the world with over 1,300 artists from more than 50 different countries.
Cirque du Soleil is coming back to Lebanon from September 7th till September 12th at the Forum de Beyrouth. The show will be Varekai, a tale of destiny in a hidden forest and an “acrobatic tribute to the nomadic soul”. I’ve read excellent reviews on Varekai and I already got my tickets for the opening act and I’m going with a group of friends. You can buy your tickets [here].
On another note, watching Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas is a dream come true for many and Cirque Du Soleil, with the help of Harley Davidson (Lebanon Chapter) and the local NGO Tamanna, will be making a critically ill kid’s dream come true by taking him to Vegas to watch Cirque Du Soleil. I was at the event at White last week when the announcement was made and I loved the initiative.
I’m looking forward to my second Cirque du Soleil experience. For those who haven’t been to any yet, get your tickets and thank me later 🙂
