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)

While I am a fan of Le Cirque, this was mediocre at best. There is no dialogue, you "float" through the story. You're better off going to see them live!

My wife and I have seen 4 Cirque stage productions, including Michael Jackson's tribute. We took four with us to the Worlds Away presentation, two of which saw La Nouba with us in Orlando. Every one was impressed by the production . . . my wife and I soon figured out that the Worlds Away was a preview, if you will, of some of the great shows that are resident in Las Vegas. For a seasoned Cirque fan, as a review of what is offered, or a novice who will be awed by the production, I'd recommend it to all . . .

It could have used a little more story-telling for the story line, but the visuals and dancing were breathtaking, as usual for Cirque du Soleil. James Cameron out-did himself on the creative, innovative production. The scenes with the vertical wall were astounding.....

Breathtaking - This is the most unreal show ever! The synchronized swimming and aerobatics are phenomenal. The physical prowess of the cast members and master riggers was incredible. I was especially captivated by the jellyfish though they were only shown for a minute. The finale was fascinating and kept my attention. The sound track was the best. Very reasonably priced tickets at our local theater - take the whole family.
