AMALUNA, CIRQUE DU SOLEIL – Royal Albert Hall

In Circus, London theatre, Opinion, Plays, Reviews by Laura KresslyLeave a Comment

Nearly twenty years ago, I went to my first Cirque du Soleil show in New York. A young teenager and already obsessed with theatre and performance, I was blown away by the colour and spectacle, having never seen anything like it before in the fourteen years that I’d been on this earth. I have no concrete memories of the show, just flashes of light and colour, and feeling impressed. I looked forward to see if Amaluna, inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest, would live up to my juvenile memories.
