El’ Circo Blanc is back for another season at Slide and both the show and menu have been revamped this winter to be better than ever.
The one-of-a-kind production is set to a Russian theme, as ‘Anastasia’ reminisces on her days as a young woman in the circus. Her tale comes alive above and around the audience while they enjoy a five-course menu featuring warm vodka cocktails, melt-in-your-mouth lamb goulash and delicious beetroot sorbet.
Contortionists, aerial artists and pole performers are delightful and the action is so close in this intimate venue that the audience cannot help but be whisked away to another world with Anastasia’s stunning singing as accompaniment. The musical production and choices in this extravaganza are spot-on.
Be enthralled but be aware of the ‘snow’ falling in your drink, the paper version is magical but the ‘icy’ version can leave a bad taste. (LL)
