View All Available Formats & Editions


Illusion mocks reality as a dreaming clown sees his own funeral and a joyous procession of jesters form a festive parade in a stage spectacular so imaginative it could only come from the minds of Cirque du Soliel. As the angels linger lovingly overhead and the carnival atmosphere explodes with vivid color and playful revelry, the seldom seen space between heaven and earth opens up to offer a touching look at the juxtaposition between the tragic and the sublime, the enormous and the microscopic, and the flawed and the perfected. Despite their outward playfulness, even clowns are fragile on the inside, and as the Cirque du Soliel performers offer a lyrical, eye-popping spectacle of wonder that highlights the deep-rooted humanity within each and every one of us.

Previously, Cirque's failures have been its adaptations of the stage shows (Journey of Man, and Alegria). This is the first stage show that I found so bad I wouldn't watch again. I'm happily giving away my copy of this DVD.

this is my favorite cirque du soleil. its about a clown that dies. the theme is dark, but they make it funny, even though death makes you sad.
