Cirque du Soleil still surprises with Kooza

Singaporeans are fortunate that Cirque du Soleil returns to the city once every few years to present a production.   The latest show, Kooza, opened in Singapore in July.

The signature Big Top Tent is there, albeit with tighter security this year.

Performance wise, Kooza has less elaborate stage design and props.  It is not a bad thing, as we get to focus on the mastery of the skilled performers.    Not forgetting the excellent backup band, which is always a delight for any Cirque du Soleil show.

Another enjoyable show from Cirque.

One of the oldest Opera houses in Europe would be staging the ballet Giselle at the Marina Bay Sands.  From the promotion website, the production designs look good, and we should expect a good performance from the cast.

Tickets available at SISTIC.
