Cirque du Soleil Presents: Baroque Odyssey
Columbia/Tri-Star, Télémajik
Filmed /// 1994 | Montreal Run Time (56 minutes)

This 10-year anniversary retrospective is a fascinating and inspiring look into the heart of the Cirque universe, highlighting its essence - the amazing energy and spirit that gave birth to the phenomenon and the breathtaking artistry that has captivated and delighted audiences around the world. “Baroque Odyssey” goes into depth describing the company’s history, and takes a stark honest look at those early years. (Hearing one executive talk about how much money they made and lost in their early years is something you don’t often see in a company-produced documentary; however, this is something of a badge of honor for Cirque du Soleil – rising from the ashes like a phoenix). The archival footage of their early years means the program has an uneven look, the older material looking grainier compared to the new, but this is to be expected.
