My birthday is in October, so I was completely shocked when I came home one day last week to a potted mini-rose plant and a birthday card! I thought Brian was having some sympathy mum-dum episodes (hehehe...). As it turned out, the card had Varekai tickets inside and that was why he was giving me a birthday in July.
We went to Varekai last Friday and, in short, it was amazing. As with every Cirque du Soleil performance, you can't help but to "Oooo..." and "Ahhhh...". In Varekai, the costumes were magical, the child performers were unbelieveable and, of course, the acrobatics leave you breathless.
In addition to Varekai, I have also seen Mystere and Alegria. I can't tell you which one is best because they were all amazing in their own right. All I can say is that a Cirque du Soleil show is a MUST for everybody. You need to see at least one show. And, it is a MUCH different experience watching it live than watching it on tv.
