Cirque Du Soleil - Alegría
So Yeah... you all (almost all) know by know that the main purpose of my Dubai's visit was to see Cirque Du Soleil's Alegría... It was AMAZING! It kinda felt that it was a mini version of the real thing, nevertheless I enjoyed it so much. I also enjoyed the company. The people I went with (some family, some friends) all enjoyed it so much. I highly recommend you go if you get the chance to, it will end on April 5th. Too bad they wont allow photography, so my pictures are all taken using my phone... and even with that they wont allow you to take pictures till the end performance and then you are free to take as much pictures as you can.
We got the VIP ticket (highly recommended) and were guided to a special VIP lounge with snacks before the show. Too bad I could not eat much due to the fact that I had lunch earlier in Ibn Battuta mall next to the Cirque. So I snapped some pics for you :-)
The show started at 8:30PM and ended at 11:00PM with half an hour intermission. Dont miss it!
