For me, Cirque Du Soleil La Nouba was one of the best acrobatic shows I have ever seen in my life. They were just phenomenal. We had the best seats just two rows from the stage. We made the reservation a month ahead since the tickets are usually sold out before the show. We paid around $82 per person, which was really nothing for such a great show. Everyone would love this show, with 2 hours of ultimate entertainment.The show started with some clowns, which were not that funny to me. I thought for a while, "Am I wasting my time watching these clowns?" Then there was more: cycles show, aerial cradle, high wire, balancing on chairs, and flying trapeze—just amazing. But my favorites were German wheel, diabolos, aerial ballet in silk, and power track/trampoline. They were magnificent and amazing. Four Asian (probably Chinese) kids, about 5 to 6 years, were flawless showing their amazing tricks with their diabolos and performing acrobats at the same time. The power track/trampoline was breathtaking. People were flying everywhere. FYKI, do not try to take pictures while you were in the theatre. I did that and tried to take couple of pictures which I hardly managed to take any good ones other than the one I had posted here, a lady came looking for my sweet Sony DCS T1. If they find you doing that, they might confiscate your camera as they would announce before the show starts. I got lucky. BE WARE! you might not be as lucky as I am.At the end, our 82 bucks paid off. It was worth paying so much for such a great show.
