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.
