Did you enjoy going to the circus when you were a child?
I was always amazed by the shows and even today I am fascinated by the world of acrobats and actors, clowns and artists.
After all, who does not like to escape the daily life and be enchanted by a show offering performances like the Cirque du Soleil? The Canadian attraction is staying in Düsseldorf until November 18, 2012 showing their visionary program, Corteo.
Cirque du Soleil does an amazing job of weaving the acts into a true story. Corteo means parade and tells the story of a clown sharing his joyful fantasies of a magic world between heaven and earth. In total, 62 artists from 20 different countries are involved in this spectacle!
Due to its great popularity the show has already been presented in more than 40 cities. I was fortunate enough to have already seen it and I can agree with all of the positive feedback: beautiful costumes in all imaginable colors, breathtaking acrobatic acts and cheerful clowns. For me it was like traveling back in time to my childhood. And I am not alone! Throughout the city everyone is talking about the breathtaking experience.
I just can’t say enough of about this circus! It is truly an experience I will cherish. If you have the chance to see Cirque du Soleil in Düsseldorf do not miss out! Your Breidenbacher Hof Personal Assistant will happily help you plan your evening. But even If you are unable to catch it during your visit, by all means, make sure to see it along one of its other stops.
