When Cirque du Soleil last visited the Del Mar Fairgrounds two years ago, it was with "Corteo," a dark and mystical stage circus named for an Italian funeral cortege.
For sheer spectacle, it would be hard to top "Corteo," one of the most expensive touring tent shows Cirque du Soleil has ever produced, so for "Kooza," they went in the opposite direction, the North County Times reported.
The pared-down, light-hearted circus is old-fashioned in its simplicity, but it still delivers big in entertainment value.
Audiences will find "Kooza" funnier, more intimate and more accessible (because, for the first time, the performers speak to the audience in English), but they'll also be impressed by the caliber of the aerialists and acrobats onstage, the paper reported.
