Cirque Du Soleil’s Totem at the Royal Albert Hall

I went to see Cirque Du Soleil’s Totem at the Royal Albert Hall this week and I was blown away by how good it was. Totem tells the story of the journey of the human species from amphibian to the aspiration to fly.

The set was amazing, along with the incredible acts and characters that filled the Royal Albert Hall with colour and left us in awe of what was taking place in front of us.

The first act, a parallel bars routine, was brilliant and breathtaking as four artists performed just inches away from each other.

More exciting acts followed, including five unicyclists juggling metal bowls at some height, the foot juggling Crystal Ladies and the “swimming” trapeze duo, who had a beautiful routine.

The highlights had to be the pair of roller skaters spinning and whirling at unbelievable speeds on top of a tiny drum-shaped platform, and the amazing Russian bars display with 10 artists leaping from one bar to another.

It’s a great show, and again the Royal Albert Hall does it complete justice.  A must-see!
