Dazzling Cirque Dreams comes to Little Rock 

HIGH-WIRE REVERIE: Cirque Dreams.
  • HIGH-WIRE REVERIE: Cirque Dreams.

The circus becomes a theatrical spectacle when Neil Goldberg’s “Cirque Dreams” takes the Robinson Center Music Hall stage for three shows Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 14-16.

All shows are at 7:30 p.m.

Goldberg’s Cirque Productions created “Cirque Dreams” after enjoying great success with the touring “Cirque Ingenieux.” Color, lights, music, costumes, comedy, illusion and daring artistic performance from an international cast will make this two-hour, two-act show a visual thrill for all ages, according to reports from previous tour stops.

Among the highlights of “Cirque Dreams” are pair of Canadian trapeze artists hanging upside down 20 feet in the air, a Russian acrobat who performs on platform placed on five rolling cylinders stacked on top of each other — each rolling in a different direction — and two Mongolian contortionists who tie themselves in knots. The show is built around a comical character named Ringabella, who sleepwalks into a giant grandfather clock and, through special effects, is “transported” in time to a bizarre world. Along the way Ringabella encounters such characters as
the Musical Muse, the Dream Conjurer, the Tricksters and the Imaginaires.

The New York native Goldberg, who bases Cirque in south Florida, has developed productions for two Super Bowls, two Miss Universe pageants and more than 2,000 corporate, private and special events throughout the world.

Tickets start at $14 plus service charges through Celebrity Attractions (244-8800, www.celebrityattractions.com) or all Ticketmaster outlets (975-9000, www.ticketmaster.com).

    Trying to compare Donald Trump's reaction to the Russia investigation with Bill Clinton's dealings with Kenneth Starr should be a non-starter if the facts mattered. But these days — and to the New York Times — it ain't necessarily so.
