I received complimentary tickets — no other compensation given. Opinions are my own.
The lights were turned off and the audience was still as we sat waiting for the start of Amaluna,Cirque du Soleil, when my husband leans in and whispers “Thank you. It was a good idea to get out on our own for a date night” and then of course, made a move for a good old fashioned make out session.
Well, ok. Not making out, but you know, a little lip action right before the lights came on.
We’ve never been to a Cirque du Soleil show and I purposely didn’t want to see any previews so that I completely taken by surprise — and that I was! As a theater lover and thespian, I took to every detail not wanting to blink so that I didn’t miss anything. It is a beautifully crafted play mixed with mind-blowing acrobatics and gymnastics, live music and glamorously intricate costumes all set on a single round stage.
In fact, this show, Amaluna is PERFECT for a date night. My husband and I could not (and would not) take our eyes off of the stage for fear of missing out. We held our breath as performers flew through the air, juggled fire and climbed a pole in a gravity defying way.
Amaluna certainly set the mood for our date night — we held hands, whispered our comments of amazement to each other and allowed us to escape for a while.
With all that being said, the show is family friendly, but personally I wouldn’t suggest it for children under 5. It gets very dark at times and could be a bit scary with the faster paced performances.
Take a look for yourself!
Phenomenal, right?! Now I want YOU to have an Amaluna date night too.
