"Amaluna" mazing!!!!

December 9th - Jo and I had brunch before heading to the "Big Top" and seeing the Cirque du Soleil show Amaluna. Words cannot truly express the myriad of senses that are engaged during this show, it's just amazing! Everything from the lighting, costumes, music, performers and staging were simply wonderful.  It just made me tingle all over!

The story....
Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon.
Their queen, Prospera, directs her daughter’s coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance which marks the passing of these insights and values from one generation to the next.
In the wake of a storm caused by Prospera, a group of young men lands on the island, triggering an epic, emotional story of love between Prospera’s daughter and a brave young suitor. But theirs is a love that will be put to the test. The couple must face numerous demanding trials and overcome daunting setbacks before they can achieve mutual trust, faith and harmony.
So here are a few of my photos from the day and also a few photos from the Cirque website  since no photos are allowed inside.
