Disclosure: My family and I were invited to enjoy this show, free of charge, in exchange for our honest and unbiased review!
Last night my family and I had the opportunity to see the Cirque du Soleil presentation of TORUK – THE FIRST FLIGHT at the Sprint Center here in Kansas City! You may remember me posting show details a few weeks ago on the site, but let me be the first to warn you… there are no previews or sneak peeks that can give this show any justice! My family and I agreed that this was, hand’s down, one of the best shows we have been to see! No surprise there considering Cirque du Soleil always puts on a great performance whenever they come to town!
Here are 5 Highlights from TORUK – THE FIRST FLIGHT
When you are going to an Avatar show, you can pretty much expect to see blue. This show did it soo much further, however, with the many vibrant and exquisite color patterns that worked remarkably well at setting the scene for an TORUK – THE FIRST FLIGHT show! It was amazing how the color of the set at any given time automatically made your feel the mood that was being portrayed on stage.
The Sound Effects
The sound effects of the show went right along with the colors, making allowing you, the viewer, to get into the scene and feel as if you were a part of the show. At times the music drove up the suspense, and had us sitting on the edge of our seats in anticipation.
This was, by far, my daughters favorite part of the show. She enjoys tumbling, and REALLY enjoyed watching the moves of the actors on stage. It was CRAZY! The way they moved their bodies seemed unreal… which I suppose it is for the average person. They were amazing and flipped and turned just as smoothly as they walked, making it look seamless!
The Special Effects
These were so fun! At times there was smoke, fire, and even the elements. Our favorite was the part in the show were the characters were attempting to climb a rock wall. I won’t spoil it for you but let’s just say that it was no easy feat!
The Crowd Engagement
Another cool feature that I wished I had realized much sooner was the TORUK app, available on Android and IOS. Download this app before the show, and you will automatically become a part of the show! Your phone will flash at appropriate times during the show, and even make noises from time to time!
Overall, this was an amazing show that I suggest you go see!
