A creative concoction of color, chaos and camaraderie exploded at Furn al-Shubbak's BIEL Wednesday night, as Cirque du Soleil staged its Lebanese premiere of "Bazzar".The hatless Maestro tries to keep everyone in line, which segues to a jaw-dropping duo trapeze act and a mallakhamb show.Mini Maestro looks on lovingly, marking the show's romantic subplot.The Maestro scares her off as the rest of troupe dances in. He demands his hat be fixed and shoos them away too, deciding to have some fun with the audience.Calling on two audience members, The Maestro instructs them to press the notes at the right time, and a pretty tune arises.The show, which took two years to complete, is one of 19 that Cirque du Soleil is performing internationally this year.While similar acts may be out there, the wonderful choreography and clean execution makes Cirque du Soleil a standout.The musicians add a special element to the show, and they're as fun to watch as the circus acts. The capacity audience seemed to love every second, giggling and clapping along to a show full of eccentricity, fun and wonderfully skilled performers.
