If you know anything about circuses, then you will have probably heard about Cirque du Soleil. They have completely changed expectations for what a circus experience should be and opened up the market for adults. And if you haven’t heard of them before, then you will almost certainly have seen one of the many distinctive blue Amaluna posters in town.
I was blown away when I first saw them perform nearly 10 years ago at the 02 arena in London, so when I saw that they were coming to Frankfurt it wasn’t too hard of a decision. I actually bought tickets around 6 months ago as they tend to sell out, but from what I saw last night, there may be a few last minute tickets if you are flexible. It is certainly worth trying.
Frankfurt is one of their travelling destinations rather than one of the big fixed shows and this has a number of benefits. Firstly, the tent is small, so room for only a few hundred people. This means that even people with a low cost seat actually have a good view and experience. Also the prices are lower than the larger events with seats starting at €35. Admittedly, the show wasn’t as dramatic or impressive as the larger event in London but is still very good.
And, if you are worried about parking, then don’t be. There is plenty of parking for everyone attending right in front of the tent. And since the show runs from exactly 8pm to 10pm, there are still plenty of public transport options to get home again afterwards.
