Before we saw the signs all over town about the Cirque / Circus, we knew something was happening. How else could you explain the sudden presence of zoo animals in town? A camel calmly eating grass off the field in front of the supermarket store - something was definitely up!!!
Cirque Lucas Fratellini in Morhange from April 2, 2014 to April 6, 2014
Guess who was excited to watch the show? SO!!! But who am I kidding, I was too! At 28, I am a kid-at-heart! <3
Our friends who blessed the town of Morhange with their presence:
It was a beautiful day today. After waiting the whole week for this event, we couldn't have been happier.
We made sure to come early. This was the fourth and last show and because it was a Sunday, I figured that it would be full of people. If there's one thing I can wait for, it would definitely be to have good seats at a show!
Being early paid off, as we were second in line. We had two seat options: Loges (15 Euros / adult, 10 Euros / children) or Gradins (10 Euros / adult, 5 Euros / children). I asked for seat details, but honestly there wasn't much difference with both, except for the price difference and type of seat (loges: plastic chairs / gradins: bench). I think everyone else thought the same way we did as no know occupied the loges seat. With the 15 Euros difference, we bought popcorn, drinks, SO went on a 1 lap pony ride, and bought a balloon.
As for the show ... well, it wasn't exactly what I thought it would be. I knew it would be a small-time production, so I don't know why I was expecting otherwise. But despite my initial reaction, it was still enjoyable!
The best part of the show came from this lovely young woman, who is from the circus school. She did two acts , one with a round bar the other with 2 pieces of white cloth, which left us amazed and breathless.
The part I least liked was the final act - the presentation of the animals. They had them dressed and do a lap in front of us. I thought they would do some tricks with the animals or some sort, but no. It was simple and honestly we had more fun taking photos of the animals outdoors all week-long.
