Goodbye Cirque, hello Aurélia

Posted by Patrick Sharbaugh on Thu, Jun 7, 2007 at 3:14 PM

Who needs Cirque de Soleil? The Montreal European circus and performance act canceled their Sunday gig at the Coliseum, but we just got in a batch of previously unreleased photos from Aurélia Thierrée’s circus theatre work Aurélia’s Oratorio, which opens tonight at Emmett Robinson Theatre, and this blogger has a feeling it’s going to be better entertainment anyway. We hear tickets for the five performances from Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter are worth their weight in truffled foie gras, but – as a Spoleto-savvy friend observed just the other day – for every five tickets bought by rich old folks, one of ‘em’s bound not to show up. The waiting list starts at the will call desk.
