The original Cirque du Soleil now has troupes performing in three cities in the US and one in Mexico. Not everyone is going to catch the name properly. A homophonious recasting is as the Circus Ole. Like the enouragement offered to gymnasts and matadors. The first hit is a first-person confession.
When I was in high school, we watched several different Cirque Du Soleil performances in my French class…I learned very little French in high school. Every time our teacher played the video I heard him say, “Today we are going to watch Circus Ole!” Consequently, this is what I called this incredible show for years. Made sense to me…
You can imagine my surprise, and humiliation, when I first met Fiancé and he corrected my pronouncement.
Circus Ole – Zumanity (Good show, seats, NY,NY)?????
A good friend of ours said that Zumanity was their favorite show in Vegas. We are a young married couple (25) and I just wanted to get some feedback regarding the show!
