I have only seen a Cirque Du Soleil show once before (you can read about it here). I was absolutely taken aback at how beautiful the show was, I mean it was stunning, it made me feel like a little kid again. So when I was approached to do a review of the DVD/Digital Copy/Blu-Ray (read: not live) version of Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away-I was hesitant at best.
I mean I was game, but I just wasn't sure that the wonderment that I experienced at the live show could be captured in a non-live version. So I received the DVD in the mail (along with a fun goody bag full of Cirque swag) and I gave it a chance. I popped it in the DVD player and instantly my attention was grabbed. The fantastical visuals that grabbed my attention in the live show was now working its magic on me at home-but in a different way. I feel like the DVD offered something that the lives show couldn't possibly offer-like detail. It was so pretty. Like, couldn't look away, pretty.
So all that is to say that, I recommend picking up a copy of Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away. I can easily seeing this being perfect for a fun night in with your love or a bunch of girlfriends and a bunch of fun snacks. Your eyes will love what they see!
