    What’s Up at CirqueClub — April 2005

    With the press conference for new touring production Corteo concluded, Cirque Club has archived the performance section on its website. They didn’t, however, include the comments by Guy Laliberte, Line Tremblay and director Daniele Finzi Pasca. We, being the completists we have always been, would have liked these translated from French and placed on the […]

    Who Has What it Takes? (Part 3 of 4)

    The selection process, Richard comments, is like carving a statue. The Audition Team are the miners of the rock, while the Director of Creation and Artistic Directors are the carvers, taking the raw stone and creating a thing of beauty.

    New Kid on the Block — KÀ (Part 3 of 3)

    With KÀ, it is evident that Cirque du Soleil set forth its loftiest set of goals ever and the production meets these goals with varying degrees of success. While I thoroughly enjoyed the show I also think that it still needs some work to be a truly great production.

  • EXCLUSIVE! Preview of the Delirium CD

    EXCLUSIVE! Preview of the Delirium CD

    Cirque fans have been waiting months for the other dancin' shoe to drop. We've heard of a 2-CD/DVD set originally scheduled for last fall called "20 Years Under The Sun." And we've heard it would contain the previously released chill remix-oriented "Tapis Rouge: Solarium" CD (originally a VIP tent gift, then re-released in the US with a new cover on November 23, 2004), as well as "Delirium," a disk of dance remixes of Cirque du Soleil music. We were also wondering what the mentioned DVD content might be. When it didn't make its original Fall 2004 release date, we wondered if the "Delirium" part of the deal might have fallen through. And when "Le Best Of" made its appearance in October, we were concerned the project was abandoned.

  • Living it Up: A La Nouba DVD Review (Part 2 of 2)

    Living it Up: A La Nouba DVD Review (Part 2 of 2)

    When I sat down to review the La Nouba DVD, I did so with a bit of apprehension. Of all the Cirque du Soleil shows I've seen live (and I've seen them all except KÀ), La Nouba is the one I've seen the most. At last count I've seen La Nouba live 10 times; it was also my first live Cirque du Soleil experience. I fondly remember my first viewing in the spring of 1999. Thus La Nouba is the show I am most familiar with -- its acts, its theme and its music -- thanks to the looming presence of its permanent Grand Chapiteau. So when it came time to watch the DVD of the production and review it for our faithful readers I wasn't very excited. I didn't know then how wrong I would be.

    Solstrom Finally On Its Way?

    No, we don’t mean out of view and into the distance, we mean onto DVD store shelves.

Though it is being mastered in the higher-quality “Superbit” encoding process, there will be […]

    Where is Delirium Anyway?

    Though originally scheduled for last fall, the companion disk to “Tapis Rouge: Solarium” hasn’t seen fit to appear on Cirque’s release list. But several of the tracks have been put out on vinyl 12″ in the UK, with pretty custom sleeves. We finally have an updated listing to give you. We suspect that most of […]
