We were blessed to be able to watch Le Grande Cirque in Araneta Coliseum a day before Christmas. We arrived very early to the venue because we overestimated the traffic conditions coming from Paranaque. So since we had an hour to spare, we ate a simple lunch at Mang Inasal that’s just walking distance from the admission area of the coliseum.
After lunch, we proceeded to the "red gate" of the Araneta Coliseum and we saw plenty of people waiting in line already. Today was actually not the actual start day of the show. I think all the audience were given free entrance for today's special show as a Christmas present from Araneta Center which explains 90% of the audience consisted of children.
After getting our tickets, we proceeded inside the coliseum to find our seats.
Thank goodness we brought plenty of food for the kids to munch on while waiting because the show started at around 2PM contrary to what the tickets indicated that it should start at 1:30PM.
And so... let the show begin:
In conclusion, the show was entertaining. I love the lighting and the acrobatic performance. Though, I did not see any new acts, they still were breathtaking. The kids really loved it.
Le Grand Cirque show starts tomorrow, Christmas day. Tickets can be bought in TicketNet online.
