Volta

February 24, 2019

We caught Cirque du Soleil’s Volta show last night. It featured many of their stock elements (Trampolines! Aerialists swinging from lines! BMX riders!), but it was still a fun time. Even their stock elements are a lot of fun, but they had a few interesting twists in this show. The strongman did lifts with his partner while riding a unicycle, which looked crazy hard. And one of the aerialists did her routine suspended by her hair (they ran a line presumably to a ring in it), which just looked like it could be incredibly painful.

The music was also good but kind of generic Cirque; there wasn’t anything particularly memorable about it. My favorite music of the shows we’ve seen recently is still Luzia; its music had a bit of Mexican influence, which to my mind made it stand out more.

Definitely catch the show if you have the chance; it’s good fun.
