A few weeks ago, we had the awesome opportunity to experience Cirque Dreams Holidaze in Bakersfield, California at the Rabobank Theater.  This was my second time watching a Cirque Dreams performance and I loved it just as much as the first time – when I watched it on my trip to Moon Palace Resort in Cancun, Mexico.  Cirque Dreams Holidaze was the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit!  The costumes were beautiful, the colors were vibrant, the decorations were cheery, and the performances were breathtaking!


Now in its 4th year of touring 2 simultaneous productions, CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE is “so full of energy it could end our dependence on oil” according to the New York Daily News and “stuffed with so much holiday cheer and audacious acts, Scrooge would exit with a big ol’ smile on his face” proclaims the Erie Times News about this “Broadway-worthy spectacle”.

Renowned director Neil Goldberg re-imagines the holiday season with sparkle and suspense one can only dream of in a HOLIDAZE. An international cast of over 30 multi-talented and brilliantly costumed artists come to life and perform astonishing feats of disbelief. Experience gingerbread men flipping mid air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen powerfully sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets dancing and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment. An original music score and some seasonal favorites accompany hundreds of spectacular costumes and holiday dreams in a setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering soldiers. The perfect way to come in from the cold, forget the holiday stresses and rediscover the magic of the season.

Don’t miss the international sensation that “Dazzled…at The Kennedy Center” according to the Washington Post… CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE

Broadway World calls Cirque Dreams Holidaze “The Perfect Holiday Gift…chock full of stupefying stunts that Cirque Dreams’s competitors aren’t even attempting. This is a show that everyone will enjoy, children and adults alike. It’s colorful, festive, imaginative, inventive, and thoroughly entertaining. While they may not be as well-known as Cirque du Soleil or Ringling Bros, Cirque Dreams is certainly just as strong, and Holidaze rivals The Rockettes’ Radio City Christmas Spectacular in terms of production quality and entertainment value.

We all really loved the Cirque Dreams Holidaze Performance! The kids smiled throughout the entire performance and they even received a standing ovation at the very end. The costumes were spectacular, the stunts were breathtaking and the show overall was a must-see for everyone! This is going to become a new holiday tradition in our family. How about yours?

I received tickets to see Cirque Dreams Holidaze to facilitate this review.
