While you're in Orlando, wrap up a day at the theme parks with a Cirque du Soleil show at Downtown Disney. La Nouba is the meeting of two worlds that are poles apart - the fantastic world of the Cirques (circus people), who sport bright, fluorescent colors, and the lackluster world of the Urbains (urbanites), who wear dark, monochromatic outfits. When these two worlds first make contact, the magic and amazing feats of one set fire to the pale, mundane lives of the other.
The circus acts of La Nouba will astound you. Balls, hoops and clubs fly in unprecedented numbers at speeds that your eyes will barely process. The Funambule act takes place on a 90-foot (27-meters), half-inch-wide steel wire; with remarkable balance and precision, a high-wire walker ascends to a height of 34 feet (10 meters) above the stage as his partner descends from the top of the theater. The entrancing Chinese yo-yo act features four young Chinese performers; holding two sticks linked by a string, they slide, juggle and toss a musical wooden spool while performing flips in the air.
