Cirque Du Soleil Box Set 1 (4 Discs)

Four thrilling Cirque Du Soleil DVDs in one spectacular box set. Titles include: Drailon, Varekai, Journey Of Man and A Baroque Odyssey.

Cirque Du Soleil - A Baroque Odyssey: A unique and inspiring look into the heart of the Cirque du Soleil(TM) universe. This 10-year anniversary retrospective made in 1994 highlights the essence of Cirque du Soleil - the amazing energy and spirit that gave birth to the phenomenon and the breathtaking artistry that has captivated and delighted audiences around the world.

Cirque Du Soleil - Dralion: A combination of ancient Chinese circus tradition and the avant-garde, this is a celebration of life and the four elements: air, earth, water and fire propelled into a futuristic dimension. Here, the costumes reflect the cinema fantastique, while the music bursts into the electro-symphonic realm of a world yet to come.

Cirque Du Soleil - Varekai: Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, there is an extraordinary world - a world where something else is possible. A world called VAREKAI. From the sky falls a solitary young man, and the story fo VAREKAI begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastical creatures, this young man sets off on an adventure both absurd and extraordinary.

Cirque Du Soleil - Journey of Man: Journey Of Man is a breathtaking odyssey that follows the stages of human development from birth to maturity, with each stage presented by a Cirque du SoleilTM act. The signature Cirque du Soleil celebration of colour, light, music and costume combine with a backdrop of various natural and historical landmarks around the world, creating a triumph of artistry beyond compare.

From the opening explosion of light and sound that represents the universe's formation, 'Journey of Man' leads us through the birth of the Universal Child as it travels from childhood, through adolescence and manhood, on to maturity. An awe-inspiring feast for the senses, incomparable artistry and stylish elegance make this an adventure of a lifetime.

Cirque Du Soleil Box Set 2 (4 Discs)
Saltimbanco is a celebration of life in which an international troupe of more than fifty performers ranging from eight to 45 years of age defy gravity and dazzle with their artistry. A panoply of acts in which top-notch acrobatics are executed with masterly beauty, hand-balancing, double trapeze, double tightrope, Chinese poles, the Russian swing, bangees, jugglers, and clowns. Created in 1994 as an antidote to the violence and despair typical of the 20th century, this phantasmagorical show proposes a new vision of urbanity, overflowing with optimism and happiness. Saltimbanco is not linear; rather, it is a kaleidoscope, an adventure in which anything can happen. Saltimbanco has its own language, a soul expressed through the voice, the body and music. 1994, 78 minutes.

Nouvelle Experience
The brilliant artistry of Cirque du Soleil has transformed the circus into an exciting, novel performance experience. Nouvelle Experience celebrates the magic of their innovative techniques and the genius of one of the most visionary groups of artists in the world. Included in the show that toured for 19 months in 1990-1991, performing to over 1.3 million people: Contortion, Korean Plank, Solo Trapeze, Tightrope, Aerial Straps, Acrobatics, Trampoline and Balancing on Chairs. 1991, 85 minutes.

While some will quibble with the visual design of Cirque du Soleil (a mutant hybrid of a Renaissance harlequinade and the Vegas excess of Liberace or Siegfried and Roy), there's no arguing about the physical prowess of the performers; the acrobatic feats are simply astonishing. Cirque du Soleil: Cirque Reinvente (We Reinvent the Circus) features dazzling dexterity on tightropes, trapezes, bicycles, and the bodies of other performers; impeccable clowning; and a contortionist of truly inhuman flexibility who can walk upside down on her hands and knees in an uncannily spiderlike fashion. Though Cirque du Soleil's spectacle is best experienced live, these particular pieces translate surprisingly well to video.

Magie Continue
Documenting their sophomore tour in 1986 that helped to propel Cirque du Soleil to new heights in attendance and success, LA MAGIE CONTINUE offers a glimpse into the impressive beginnings of what was to become a worldwide phenomenon and an inspiration to millions.

Cirque Du Soleil Box Set 3 (4 Discs)
Cirque Du Soleil - Alegria: A feature-length film starring the Cirque du Soleil, Alegria is a beautifully filmed fantasy about the strange world inhabited by circus performers and their interpersonal relations. Veteran thespians Mako, Langella and Cox provide the acting chops while members of the famed Canadian troupe do their inimitable thing.

Cirque Du Soleil - La Nouba: Derived from the French expression "faire la nouba," which means "to live it up," the show lives up to the Cirque du Soleil tradition of unforgettably magical performances, incorporating spectacular acrobatics, extravagant costumes, and beautiful choreography into one delightful, spectacular extravaganza. The show melds drama and traditional circus with a large dose of quirky, bizarre creativity, and showcases feats on the highwire, trapeze, and circus floor that truly must be seen to be believed.

Cirque Du Soleil - Dralion: The world-renowned Cirque du Soleil does it again with this special performance captured on video, fusing Chinese and African performance styles into a fresh and exciting new form. Enjoy the amazing acrobatics and clowns of the Cirque as they astonish and delight you.

Cirque Du Soleil - Saltimbanco: The Worms are born with nothing at the base of society--they long to attain the level of the Baroque, a group of enlightened visionaries. Through a series of eye-popping routines, the Baroque give insight into the contradictions of human civilization. Fully of amazing acrobatics to astound the entire family, Cirque du Soliel's Saltimbanco is a phantasmagorical antidote to the violence and despair of modern society.

Cirque Du Soleil: Fire Within / Varekei Box Set (4 Discs)
Two thrilling Cirque Du Soleil DVDs in one spectacular box set, spread over three discs.

Cirque Du Soleil - Fire Within: On location in the Cirque's home base of Montreal, the newly-assembled Varekai performers must now work harder than they ever have before to get ready for opening night in eight months time. It's a challenge that few are equal to, and the greatest acrobats, trapeze artists, and athletes must train to perfection to create the spectacular extravaganza that is the Cirque du Soleil. The extremity of the experience in all its manifestations has been captured in this behind-the-scenes documentary. Extraordinarily revelatory, each member of the group faces great physical and emotional obstacles on the path toward producing the greatest work of their lives.

Cirque Du Soleil - Varekei: The mindbending French Canadian acrobatic theater troupe stars in this highly imaginative, allegorical tale about a young man who falls from the sky into a kaleidoscopic world populated by fantastic creatures at the base of a volcano. The production is a dramatic interpretation told through the use of spectacular acrobatics, performed by over 50 artists from 13 countries performing feats on the aerial straps, Russian swings, triple trapeze, hand-balancing on canes, juggling, and many other phenomenal stunts. "Varekai" means "wherever" in the language of the gypsies, and the show itself pays homage to the wanderer in all of us, and the passion and beauty of the circus tradition.

Cheers Andy, voted hot
Cheers, got a Varekai / Firewithin and box set 2 a few months ago - excellent deal.
Just a word of warning to anyone buying these off play.

I bought my mother box set 3 with la nouba in for mothers day as we had seen it a few years ago at disney land and its what got her into cirque du soleil. However they sent box set 1 (which has one good show on it) and the rest is dross. Emailed play to try and get this sorted and they never bothered to respond so just kept it in the end.

Also these dvds have been £7.99 since the beginning of time i cant remember a time when they were not that price on play.

Just warning everyone incase they are looking to complete a collectiona and may possibly get the wrong one. For that reason i wont vote hot or cold.
Going to see Cirque Du Soleil this Sunday in Glasgow. Can't wait. I've seen most of their dvds before. Performing arts doesn't get any better than this. Or technologically advanced for that matter. The computers behind the set movements apparently cost upwards of $1m.

Presume that would be Quidam. Saw this in London in Jan and it was superb. Great show with some super music. Enjoy ;-)
Saw Ka in Las Vegas.

Astounding show.

So atmospheric and technically brilliant.
I saw this in Dubai a couple of weeks ago and it was fab. Will order these so my kids can watch it. cheers xx
