Here is something interesting. One of my favorite things to do is attend a Cirque Du Soleil performance. They are truly unique and innovative, if you are ever in Vegas, catch "O" at the Ballagio it’s a visually stunning and beautiful production. I’ve seen almost every traveling show. If you don’t know what Cirque is, I like to describe it as the Circus for the pretentious set. But it’s much more than freaky clowns and lions. Their shows are amazing. And here’s a rare treat, next week for one week only, their Delirium show will hit select theaters. This actually sucks, because usually the theaters in my area never show these satellite beamed shows. But if you are near one of these theaters you should run out and see it. Don’t even think about it. You can get the tickets at http://www.DELIRIUM.thehotticket.net. The shows will be, August 20th, 21st, 23rd and 24th Here’s the official press release and more screenshots.
On, August 20th, 21st, 23rd and 24th Sony Pictures Releasing’s new special programming division The Hot Ticket will bring audiences the groundbreaking live music and dance extravaganza DELIRIUM in HD from Cirque du Soleil. For the first time ever, special limited engagement presentations of DELIRIUM will be available to audiences in select movie theaters across the US and Canada.
"We couldn’t be more delighted and proud to kick off our inaugural slate of Hot Ticket programming with Cirque du Soleil’s DELIRIUM,” said Rory Bruer, President of Domestic Distribution for Sony Pictures Releasing. “It’s the perfect marriage to have such a visually exciting multimedia show as DELIRIUM showcased in theaters in state-of-the-art high definition presentation. It is stunning to experience the show in this way and it sounds amazing. It’s truly the next best thing to being there and experiencing the show "live" and I believe audiences will be blown away by the incredibly creative and talented artists, acrobats and performers that make up the world renowned Cirque du Soleil troupe."
With visually stunning tableaux in which music and projections meld together, DELIRIUM is a mesmerizing production. "We are happy to take this opportunity to bring the Cirque du Soleil experience to a new entertainment environment,” explained Jacques Méthé, Executive Producer at Cirque du Soleil Images. “We believe that DELIRIUM in HD will offer audiences a memorable experience in movie theaters because of its magnitude, the energy of the performers and the diversity of its music going from percussion to electronic music."
