Cirque du Soleil is back at Royal Albert Hall with a roar! Totem is 2019 London’s evolution themed extravaganza, from amphibians to beach posers, Amerindians and modern Europeans cliches, turbulent oceans fusing with volcanoes and becoming green lands, tribal flying becoming a space odyssey. Our Totem Cirque du Soleil review can not be anything but glorious, for 2 hours I oscillated between goosebumps, laughing and transported on far away lands and ancient times; whilst my 5 years old watched in awe at his favourite themes such as lava, fish, space and flying. Totem Cirque du Soleil London brings 2 hours of pure magic where human boundaries are constantly challenged and pushed.

On the stage there’s a giant, skeleton-like acrobatics structure and a magic bridge that unfurls into different shapes, with stunningly real projections of lapping water and darting surround sound merging into a full sensory rush.
We found the transitions between set pieces seamlessly done and the acts beautifully varied: between gravity defying amphibians or Bollywood inspired heroes; fun acts with cultural stereotypes including apes, early humans and a puffed-up businessmen hilarious but super skilled; tensioned performances where we just watched in awe and terror roller skaters spinning and whirling at heart stopping speeds; Italian and Spanish boys; primal passions and primary skills.
Totem Cirque du Soleil London brings the spectacle to an exquisite level and as always The Royal Albert Hall is the most magnificent and gracious setting for this visual and audio feast. Grab your tickets quickly, Totem Cirque du Soleil Royal Albert Hall runs until February 26th but mostly sold out (especially at week-ends), for all the right reasons!
It’s been the second Cirque du Soleil for me in 2 weeks as no Vegas trip is complete without seeing one! So feeling utterly spoilt and very grateful! Last year the 5 years old (well technically 4 years old back then) watched Ovo in awe for his first time, but Totem Cirque du Soleil Royal Albert Hall he reckoned it’s even more amazing! ‘Loved it, loved it, loved it!’ to quote him precisely.
Totem Cirque du Soleil London has magic and primary passions, spirituality, love, trust and mischief – a glorious rollercoaster starting from water and ending in water- metaphors after metaphors, humankind constantly challenging and transcending their context and limits in a show of pure magic and sheer art.
PS: Thanks so much for the invite! Pleasure as always to feature the iconic Royal Abert Hall and Totem Cirque du Soleil review has been a delight!
