Cirque du Soleil Varekai Manila

Cirque du Soleil Varekai finally opened in Manila. According to their website

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists 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 of 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. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of all possibilities, begins an inspired incantation to life rediscovered.

The word Varekai means "wherever" in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. This production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai.

After the premiere night, I started reading rave tweets about the show. They say it was spectacular and it isn’t too late yet to get tickets for the show. I checked the website and there are a lot of seats still available. As for us, we are are scheduled to watch on July 7. *grin* Needless to say, I cannot wait for the day to come! watching Cirque is actually in my bucket list and I am happy that the husband is making it real for me :)
