OMG Cirque Du Soleil Totem has arrived in Ottawa. Tobei and I were so thankful and excited to attend the opening night on July 11th. In fact you can read our Cirque Du Soleil Totem review if you would like.
About Cirque Du Soleil Totem
Since its Montreal World Premiere in April 2010, more than 2 million people across Canada, The Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States have been mesmerized by the TOTEM experience that The Montreal Gazette described as “A true WOW! Escapist entertainment at its best” and The Toronto Star proclaimed as “spectacular, artful. Breathtaking and deliciously ironic”.
TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.
Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species. Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.
The intimate and visually-stunning production features a cast of 46 acrobats, actors, singers and musicians coming from 15 different countries who perform in an ever-changing scenic environment. Through the magic of video images that were specially shot for the production in various parts of the world, the set of TOTEM becomes a virtual swamp, a river source, a marsh, a lake, an ocean, a volcanic island, a pond and a starry sky.
Cirque Du Soleil Totem is in Ottawa until August 4th, 2013. I strongly suggest if you can make it out to see the show to do so. Cirque Du Soleil Totem is worth every penny.
Tickets start at $58.50 not including the military, senior or child discount. You can purchase tickets directly at their website.
