How’s your spring break going??? Looking for something to do? Check out Cirque Italia! It’ll be at Northest Mall in Hurst through March 18th, and they recently added additional dates in Grapevine, Denton and Wichita Falls.
We went on opening night and it was really fun. The talent we saw underneath that big blue and white striped tent was incredible!
A few of the acts were similar to things we’ve seen on America’s Got Talent. But unlike a show edited for television, we got to see how real the performances are. There were occasional mess ups, like a drop while juggling or a fall off the tightrope, but this helped to showed the complexity of the acts and the overall skill level of the performers.
And as a mom, what I appreciated most was when there was a fail or an error, the performers didn’t give up, rather they attempted the same trick again to prove they could be successful. It made me think of the old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” It’s called perseverance, kids!
Of course there were times when the performers looked as if they were struggling or about to fall, which led to gasps and screams from the audience. But I think it was all part of the fun to create drama and excitement. Like this guy below on the barrel roll (or whatever you’d call it) who “stumbled” and acted as if he were about to plummet 40 feet to the ground. The crowd was mesmerized and cheering him on to survive the dangerous trick. So fun!
I also loved the “butterfly girls” who did beautiful aerial stunts.
And the couple who roller skated on a platform about the size of my kitchen table. WOW!
Heads up…there’s an intermission, which means if you can’t say “no” to your kids, have your pocketbooks ready. There are plenty of opportunities to spend money. From photos on stage with the performers…
And glowing chotskies…
Oh, and don’t forget the snacks…

What is Cirque Italia?
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “Aquatic Spectacular”? Water, entertainment, excitement……? You can expect all these things and so much more from the brand new themed Cirque Italia production with its perfectly fitting new title. After six years of enhancements, a rigorous casting selection, and countless performances nationwide, this newest form of Cirque Italia’s innovative and unique “traveling circus” spectacular production is set to be its finest to date.
Aquatic Spectacular came to life all thanks to its imaginative creator Manuel Rebecchi, along with invaluable direction and production management by Chanté DeMoustes. Cirque Italia’s brand-new theme show is an artistic blend of human abilities, technology and the element of water. This one-of-a-kind production combines water fountains, jet-skis, pirates, and more in a fun filled atmosphere all ages are sure to enjoy.
Performers from all over the world have been brought together under the enchanted spiral of the white and blue big top. The merging of their astonishing skills with the poetic element of water has led to the creation of a truly unforgettable experience. Cirque Italia has managed to create a beautifully unique theatrical production by combining the gracefulness of the human body with the calming fluidity of water, along with bursts of power and excitement as well.
Aquatic Spectacular offers two hours of high-end entertainment. Beautiful aerialists dazzle and shimmer on a chandelier high above the ground, but they aren’t the only ones that will draw your eyes toward the sky. You can expect to see contortion in a bubble, a Venetian aerial duo, and even someone hula hooping while in the air. Don’t worry about getting your eyes checked, you aren’t seeing double; there are TWO lasermen. Duo jugglers, duo roller-skaters, the always breathtaking wheel of death………the list goes on and on. It is even possible for a pre-historic dinosaur to make an appearance. Let your imagination wander, because anything is possible in this new whimsical production.
