A child in a sandbox. An architect at a construction site. A high wire shimmering over an Italian piazza. Aliens performing at a cosmic discotheque. All are touched by the solar wind, a magical energy force that transforms everyday life into a playful world blending fantasy with acrobatic performance. Since its inception in 1984, Cirque du Soleil has delighted spectators in more than 100 cities around the world. Now for the first time, Cirque du Soleil presents Solstrom, a new and extraordinary 13-part television series.

Regardless of what fans may think of Cirque’s first variety series, they didn't skimp on disc space for this set, spreading the Superbit-quality, 45-minute episodes over five DVDs. The discs are packaged in five simple, yet well-designed ThinPak cases, inside of a cardboard slipcase. The anamorphic, widescreen menus include some subtle animation based on the series' concept, along the names of the episodes and a set-up link, with episode chapters available on a subscreen.
