My Christmas Blessings came in many forms this holiday season, time for family togetherness and bonding, gift giving, fun shopping and doing a lot of fun activities at home as well as my workplace. I am extra thankful that I got the news that I was included in the media line-up just before Christmas to cover for a one of a kind show at the Araneta Coliseum! Truly the “LE GRAND CIRQUE” would be too hard to pass up even if we knew we still had to get some cooking done for the Christmas Eve – my Christmas Paella would be at stake…but what the heck…it’s the greatest show in town, direct from Las Vegas and I got invited! And not only that, I get to sit in the VIP section as a media guest, we were right smack in the middle. Thank you sir Ian of Araneta for the great accommodations!
We were already pretty excited for the show to start. The voice over already started the countdown…this is soooo cool! Afterall, this is live entertainment at it finest! Circuses do bring together the most amazing performers that do the most astounding acts, mostly including acrobats, contortionists, aerialists, jugglers, jumpers, hoopers and clowns. Cannot wait to see the acts that defy gravity and the ones displaying near superhuman abilities… we sit back… put out our phone cameras and wait for the grand opening…….
I tell you, as soon as the grand spectacle started, we were just spellbound! We were wowed with the gravity-defying aerialists, the wall walkers, hoop divers, who dive, jump, twist and somersault through and over stacked hoops, balancing acts and the contortionists! Add to that Mr. Mime who added delight to the show by reaching out to the locals after each and every presentation. He was such a delight! And it was really a captivating show… we were still very excited with the opening number and the next ones that followed until the giant beach balls came bouncing around segueing to the finale’! Let the spellbinding “Le Grand Cirque” captivate you like it captivated me… Straight from Las Vegas, “Le Grand Cirque” is Araneta Center’s Christmas offering this December. Touted, and if I may say really truly is THE GREATEST SHOW IN TOWN this holiday season. This spectacular circus show will definitely keep audiences on the edge of the seats, and I know that for a fact! Don’t miss out! Feel the thrill of the death-defying stunts and unbelievable acts in a fantastic show that you and your loved ones can enjoy this Yuletide season. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! #LeGrandCirqueAraneta
