WHAT HAPPENED?!

Cirque Boston used to be held at Suffolk Downs under the Big Top Tent. There were strict rules that if you were late after the show started you had to wait until intermission to go to your seat. Not anymore! So many interruptions! I attended Corteo at the Agannis Arena where they did not adhere to the old way of doing things. People coming in and out whenever they pleased, children screaming, parents walking up and down rows to calm their children, people jumping to other seats. I paid $150+ per ticket for my anniversary. This has been a tradition for us. I am truly disappointed.

MY 11 YEAR OLD SON FELL ASLEEP

I sold CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - CORTEO to my son as mind blowing...he is going to be so blown away. I have seen past CIRQUE shows and that's how I felt after the show. Tonight, my 11 year old son fell asleep. I think that says it all.

UNDERWHELMING

The last Cirque Du Soleil show I saw in person was Quidam, 20 years ago. Cirque has a reputation for being spectacular. Corteo fell far far short of this reputation. The acrobatics looked more like a warm up routine. A lot of acts felt like filler material. The aerial artists were the only act that held their own, and yet still their performance was something I’ve seen at other circuses- and of course more should be expected from Cirque. Others have labeled this as a “pandemic show”, and I have to agree. Subpar performance overall. The costumes and visuals were interesting, but nothing at all about the show was enough to pull you in and keep engaged throughout. Throughly disappointed. Don’t waste your money on this one!

LOST IT'S MAGIC

I am someone who loves Cirque Du Soleil. I have seen 7 shows and they have all felt like magic and have been absolutely beautiful. This show was different. This is the first time they have done the show in Seattle at a large arena, and not in the tents at Marymoor. I understand the want to make more money by having more seats, but you loose the closeness and connection you feel with the performers. It is lack luster and it feels as if you are just watching it on a screen. I sincerely hope they go back to the tents. I heard people in crowd mention the same thing. I will not be buying tickets if they continue doing this. This show also had a lot less acrobats and a lot more filler. I felt most of the show was dialogue and comedy. I miss all the breathtaking acts. The performers were great, but I wish this show had the same feeling as the rest.

HORRIBLE VENUE!

The "climate" at Climate Pledge Arena took the edge off the entire performance for our family (grandparents, children, grandchildren). Unnecessary and onerous screening of patrons, lousy guidance from ushers, poor (and unsafe) lighting, inadequate marking of rows and seats all made the access to the performance uncomfortable and and onerous. Although the performers were amazing, I never really understood the story line, I found it to be chaotic and, (at times) boring. I would NOT recommend the show, and definitely not the venue!

DID NOT TRANSLATE WELL

We attended the show at Climate Pledge Arena. Small stage for large venue shrouded in curtains cutting off view from any seat that was not smack dab in the center. We had people coming to their seats and blocking our view for the first 30 minutes of the show. What happened to corralling late arriving guests? Lastly, there were lack luster scenes that went on too long. I would not recommend. Keep it in Vegas as it does not translate well in make shift venues.

NO MAGIC IN IT.

Very disappointed. Took my grand kids aged 8 and 9. They were engaged in some parts but in general not captivated. Tents are much more captivating. At Sports arenas the magic and involvement not there. I would never go again unless it is in a tent. Poorly done. Don’t waist your money.
