See it if You like great music and story, in a circus format!

Don't see it if You are looking for a "normal" circus, with animals jumping through fire and people walking on ropes.

Funny, Exquisite, Enchanting, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You want to be delighted, like tension with happy ending and great performance and staging. I’ve seen 3 cirque du soleil and still amazed!

Don't see it if You don’t like fantasy, acrobatics, contortionists.

Must see, Great staging, Entertaining, Riveting, Jaw-dropping

See it if you want to see acrobats and trapeze artists of the highest calibre; the show made full use of the amazing space in the Royal Albert Hall

Don't see it if you don't like to see performers take major risks and carry out stunning stunts that reach 50 or maybe 60 ft+ into the air

See it if You enjoy the modern day circus.

Don't see it if You can’t follow a nonverbal storyline.

The Times (UK)
January 19th, 2023

"Now and then the retro sci-fi stagecraft drags, and there is a dud or two. The “Invisible Circus” act outstays its welcome, even if the clown who fronts it makes up for it later with a swish routine involving a cat impression and an audience volunteer."

“This is about enjoying the way such a big, bold spectacle can bring out the child in all of us. ’Kurios’ is a show that has its feet planted firmly in the sawdust, even as its astonishing acrobats soar high above us.”

Time Out London
January 19th, 2023

“By now, you know what you’re getting with a show created by this grandee company of contemporary circus – a visual feast that few others can match in scale or talent. And there’s plenty to capture the imagination in this cabinet of wonders.”

London Theatre
January 19th, 2023

"In this cabinet of curiosities, acts defy human boundaries and ask what we can achieve when we let our futures guide us. For ‘Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios,’ the future is now, and after the pandemic, it’s brighter than ever."

The London Evening Standard
January 19th, 2023

“Past shows have felt a little too corporate. ‘Kurios’ has an earthier feel. Beware though. You will spend so much time gazing up in awe you might wake with a stiff neck. But it will be worth it.”

The Guardian (UK)
January 19th, 2023

“The steampunk genre might be about harnessing technology and mechanical invention, but this show is really about the mastery of human mechanics, the minutiae of muscle control, and our reflexive surprise at what flesh-and-blood bodies can do.”
