Cirque du Soleil is home to La Nouba, a circus-like performance that's unlike any circus you've ever seen. Acrobats, gymnasts, and other performers weave a mystical spectacle of imaginative stunts and dreamlike routines that unfold all around you. While the main action takes place onstage, other characters can be found wandering throughout the arena doing seemingly unrelated things. The show is part fantasy, part dream and part mystery, all woven together in a series of jaw-dropping acts that will leave you dazzled and breathless.

Before the show begins, a pair of clowns (Balto and Serguei) enter the arena and set the mood by interacting with guests and having some mischievous fun with a few unsuspecting audience members.

Once the show begins, a parade of characters and performers makes its way through the aisles, followed by a cleaning woman who sweeps the stage as the characters appear one by one (by the end of the performance you'll learn that she's much more than a simple maid).

You'll see the Green Bird, who watches the ariel performances, desperate to fly. Les Cons, dressed in all white, are the ever present fools of the show. They find themselves in the middle of everything and often participating in unusual ways. Le Titan is a mysterious figure; at first, this muscle man confronts everyone on stage while contorting his body in unusual poses, but he eventually reveals his secret talent. The Walker is a Charlie Chaplin-inspired character who strolls throughout the show. Like Le Titan, he too has a hidden talent that will eventually be revealed. The Pierrot Rouge (the red acrobat) is the adversary of the Titan at the show's outset, but eventually joins him in mutual admiration at the end of the show. The Pierrot Clown and Lost Ballerina are the Romeo and Juliet of the show, dancing and sharing their love, passion and fears.

Throughout the show you'll be dazzled by a variety of performances including high wire acrobatics, daredevil cyclists, graceful ariel ballet performances, mesmerizing exhibitions of balance and agility, breathtaking trapeze artistry and a truly astonishing trampoline routine. The music is performed live by six musicians and two singers (the soundtrack itself is also available for purchase).

La Nouba is a one-of-a-kind mixture of acrobatics, dance, performance art and magic that's truly unforgettable.
