    stunning and slightly creepy

    First off, if you have not yet experienced Cirque du Soleil go out and do so as soon as possible. The music cannot fully be appreciated without having seen the show. The music for La Nouba is a slightly creepy parody of classic circus music...with industrial sounding elements thrown in. There are two singers. A woman with lower more raspy vocals, and a man with the voice of a young boy in an angelic boy chorus. I prefer the songs in which the man sings, mostly beacause he captures the original feel of La Nouba. His voice is stunning and sad. Incredible. When listening to the music, one recals the crying clowns and flipping acrobats of this truly spectacular spectacle. There are a few songs I skip over that are a bit too techno for my taste however. For anyone who has seen the show and heard the soundtrack, are you like me in that everytime you hear the end of the song "Queens," you can see the Trapize jumps when the mans voice crescendos??? I can recal so perfectly that one leap the trapize artist made every time the music does just that.
