the finale was a grand pas de deux that brought me to tears
Having experienced most of the Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil performances featured in the story, there is never a bad seat in the house. The 3-D movie places the audience front and center for the amazing moves, elaborate costumes, and intricate makeup, as well as the beauty of the movement of the acrobats' bodies.
Well Done! Team Andrew Adamson and James Cameron
(Pas de deux is a ballet term meaning "step of two", usually performed by a female and a male dancer. A grand pas de deux is a simple pas de deux with a definite structure of five parts: entrée, adage, variation for the danseuse, variation for the danseur, and the coda, in which both dancers dance together.
The grand pas de deux also refers to a style of ballet produced during the early nineteenth century in which the accent was on the conveyance of a mood to a story, as in World's Away, a romance)
