Corteo was the 9th Cirque du Soleil production we've seen. (11/09/2007)
It had all the typical Cirque du Soleil type of events acrobats swinging from giant chandeliers, bouncing beds, cyr wheels, an amazing tightrope walker, teeter borads, aerial stunts, etc. But the most amazing part for us was the Helium Dance, in which a dwarf named Valentyna was tethered to six enormous helium baloons and floated into the audience, bouncing off the hands of the spectators below her.
Watching Valentyna float was a true highlight.
Being suspended by helium baloons looked like so much fun although there isn't enough helium on this planet to lift our big asses in the air! Although it wasn't the best Circue du Soleil production we've ever seen, it was definitely worthwhile. Even if only to watch Valentyna's flight.
