Things to do in the Bay Area: Cirque du Soleil Totem

Cirque Du Soleil presents Totem

Last night, my family and I went to Cirque Du Soleil’s Totem performance in San Francisco.  It was an amazing performance filled with acrobatics, dancing, trapeze artists, and stunt work.  I won’t go into any of the particulars because it is truly inspiring what these artists do and I do not want to ruin the surprise.   If you have a night free, definitely take the journey with Cirque Du Soleil’s Totem.  Below you will find some information on how to get cirque du soleil coupons.

“TOTEM traces the fascinating journey of the human species from its original amphibian state to its ultimate desire to fly. The characters evolve on a stage evoking a giant turtle, the symbol of origin for many ancient civilizations.  Inspired by many founding myths, TOTEM illustrates, through a visual and acrobatic language, the evolutionary progress of species.  Somewhere between science and legend TOTEM explores the ties that bind Man to other species, his dreams and his infinite potential.”- From the website

Practicalities:

Performances for Cirque Du Soleil Totem run through December 18, 2011.   I found my tickets for %40 off through Goldstar.   There is more information below about Goldstar.  They are also featuring discounted tickets for Cirque Du Soleil: Immortal inspired by Michael Jackson.    Our seats were in the very back of the tent, but there were no more than 2600 people in the tent and our seats were still perfect.  Because it was in a tent I was worried it might be a little chilly, but I was fine.

Cirque Du Soleil is located at Grand Chapiteau at AT&T Park, Parking Lot A.  If you know where the Giants stadium is, it’s right next to that.  You can easily take BART and then MUNI to the show or drive.  Parking can be a little hard to find, but you can park in the parking lot for $20.

They do have snacks and merchandise at the tent.  The snacks are pretty expensive.  Wine-$9, sodas-$5, popcorn-$6, water-$6.  They have a couple combos for around $20 for a few people that includes candy.  Definitely eat or have a drink before you go.  There are plenty of good places around the tent.

I got my tickets through a service called Goldstar.  It is a discount website that gives you half price tickets to a variety of performances, concerts, sports, theater and more.  I highly recommend it.  Visit this Goldstar link for more information and to sign up.
