Item #35: Done! H had been to a couple of Cirque du Soleil shows in the past, but I had never seen one. We had hoped to catch La Nouba when we went down to Disney earlier this year, but it turned out to be the one week they were off this year! Argh! It's okay, though, because I loved this performance. The music was just amazing, and the acrobatics were stunning. My favorite act is a toss-up between the unicycle duo and the Wheel of Death. Just ... wow. H preferred the juggler, who moved the objects so fast that they blurred! And our jaws both dropped when the contortionists did their thing. Human bodies can't do that, can they?? Oh, yeah ... and the guy balancing on chairs -- raw power & precision balance. Two thumbs up, here!
