Cirque du Soleil's newest traveling show just opened in Boston last week. I've watched pretty much every Cirque show that's come to Boston in the last eight years - needless to say I'm a big fan. The past couple of shows I saw though, Corteo (in Boston) and Zumanity (in Vegas) were not so good. I was disappointed.

But when Kooza tickets went on sale, I was psyched and sat on the website the day of the sale trying to get the best tickets I could. I ended up with front row seats for this past Sunday's show. And let me tell you, Kooza renewed my faith in Cirque - the show was wonderful.

Contortionists, tightrope walkers, acrobats, juggling, something they called the Ring of Death, and so on and so forth. It was captivating. One difference from previous years - the show was at the Bayside Expo Center as opposed to Suffolk Downs.

Now I've got my fingers crossed that I'll be able to find some time to see O in Vegas when I'm at CES this upcoming year.

I think Quidam is still my favorite, the music and the dark nature of the backstory was so good. But Kooza is definitely a close second. The show will be around through mid-October, I highly recommend it.

  1. jake g Said,

    I am also a big fan of cirque. I've seen La Nouba, O, Love, and Quidam.

    I agree that Quidam was amazing. Sadly I will not be able to make it to Kooza. But if you do make a trip out to Vegas again skip O and hit up Love. I saw both back to back nights. Love was first and completely overshadowed O and made it look like a high school play. The show is truly a marvel.

    If you do choose to change your mind, skip the front section. Get the second section, it is cheaper and I guarantee that there isn't a bad seat in that house, it is a feat of engineering to make everyone's viewpoint perfect.
