Going through the gates of Citi Field we could see the Big Top Tent to the right. The tent has flags that represented all the countries participating in the current Cirque Du Soleil TOTEM show. Then we walked into the standing area. They had everything from snacks to souvenirs to alcohol to those nice CGI pictures that gave everyone a chance to see themselves on TOTEM.
The excitement could be heard as they opened the big tent for everyone to find their seats. We were thrilled with our 4th row seats! That put us very up front and close to the action. The stage started off with a turtlelike animal on a beautiful grassy beach background. I knew already tat that point that the show would be awesome.
After the intermission there was much more fun in store.The clowns were playing and it turned into singing and the one clown showed off with the devil sticks . My favorite and what I thought was the best performance of the night was a trapeze act that blew my mind . The next act was just breathe taking as a giant drum was brought out and 2 performers showed us their talent with a lot of spinning and different positions. There were balance beams, acrobatics and neon. A definite recipe for a lot of amazing tricks. Wow, the finale was beyond anything I have ever seen in my lifetime.
At home after the show: “I’m sitting in my chair after the most amazing night I ever had seeing Cirque Du Soleil Totem . I have been to many places all over and seen many shows, but this show was AMAZING and touched me with that much excitement , energy, comedy the thrills of a circus in a unique way that I would so recommend this show for couples and/or families of all ages!”.
