This week has been filled with so many wonderful things like my son starting his Senior year and getting to see La Nouba.
You may remember me posting about my Disney Bucket List recently. On it I said I would like to get to see La Nouba by Cirque Du Soleil. Well, it happened.
Peter Pan once said to Wendy that for her to fly she needed “Faith, Trust, and a little Pixie Dust.” Well, I had faith and trust. Disney supplied the Pixie Dust.
When walking up to get your tickets you will see the theater it’s an amazing sight. This 1,671-seat theater is the first freestanding permanent structure ever built for Cirque du Soleil. Set Designer Michel Crête of Cirque du Soleil, Michel Aubé of Scéno Plus, Walt Disney Imagineering, and the architects of the Rockwell group of New York collaborated on the overall design of the building. It is beautiful. I am in awe of it every time I see it.
After getting your tickets you will be let into the lobby of the theater. Here you can purchase concession items such as popcorn, nachos, and drinks. You can also buy survivors but don’t spend to o much time as there is a pre show happening and you want to save money from the gift shop downstairs.
Once you have your food and you are seated(your ticket will have your seat number on it and the usher will direct you to your seat) enjoy the surroundings. The inside of the theater is gorgeous and the pre show is really fun. My son and I were in stitches watching the “The Clowns” carry on.
Did you know that there are 14 countries represented in the 67-member cast of La Nouba. They come from Russia, Canada, the U.S., China, Japan, Ukraine, Brazil, Poland, France, Peru, Mexico, Great Britain, Australia, and Belarus. Pretty amazing right?
The whole show is breath taking. the stunts, the stories, the singing but the part that really got us was the live music. Son has been in the band for 7 years and last year his halftime show consisted of music from La Nouba so to see it performed live was stunning. He was so excited about it, he couldn’t stop talking, which is pretty amazing for my son who is usually very quiet.
Before leaving the theater be sure to check out the gift shop for some fun Suviniors.
Tickets prices start at $49 dollars, it all depends on where you decide to sit. Make sure you ask them what kind of discounts they offer because right now through December 16, Florida Residents can experience the show for as low as $96.75, plus tax, for three tickets or $129, plus tax, for four tickets for Category 3 seats. Shows run every week from Tuesday through Sunday with two shows, 6:00pm and 9:00pm. To buy tickets click here
I highly recommend that if you are planning a trip to Disney anytime soon this year you add this to your must do list. The last show will be December 31, 2017, and you don’t’ want to miss this extraordinary show. Plus there is so much to do at Disney Springs while you are there. My personal favorite is Ghirardelli they have the best chocolate and ice cream but son loves Splitsville for bowling and burgers.
