I was elated to attend a performance by the troupe. For years I had heard and seen the news about Cirque du Soleil, this French Canadian, award-winning conglomeration of acrobatics, dance, music, and street theater under a big top, but never had I witnessed the entertainment.

From the Fast Track trampoline act to the Synchronized Trapeze to the Contortionist to the Flying Man to the Russian Bars and the Manipulation streamers...each of the 11 or so acts was awe-inspiring. All in all, about 50 artists performed that night, and I thought to myself, "How is it possible to create such events where superlatives were not enough?"
