I went to the opening night of Cirque Du Soleilâ€™s Varekai last night.
It was in a word sensational!
The Big Top looks fantastic on the lake â€“ we should use the lake for more of these sorts of events, including festivals.
The performances were exhilaratingâ€¦stunning costumes with a great atmosphere.
Marathon man, Rob de Castella, made a special appearance that brought the house down.
They received a standing ovation and came out for 3-4 â€˜curtain callsâ€™.
The after party was also first-rate. Held under the â€˜shadowâ€™ of the Big Top on a balmy evening the guests wined and dined with some of the performers.
