I enjoyed it as theater.
Mostly, it seemed like very high level circus, but still circus.

However, about a quarter of the way through, I realized they had a live orchestra.
I cannot do justice to the music in words.
If you have a sound system that will play the sound track of a video DVD, buy or rent the Varekai DVD:

I think the above includes video of the various acts, but, even without the video, I consider the DVD worth the price of purchase.

If I had it to do over again, would I pay that much to go to the circus?
No.

However, knowing what I know now, I'd buy the DVD in a heartbeat.
