Created to celebrate its 15th anniversary, Cirque du Liban's latest show, "Fontana," sent ripples of excitement and laughter through Friday's opening crowd.Gathering a troupe of 30 acrobats, dancers, musicians and stuntmen, "Fontana" presented a series of death-defying acts and feats of flexibility, on a stage that doubled as a mobile dancing fountain. Three acrobats remained on stage, taking to silk ropes for an aerial performance, accompanied by Destiny's Child's "Survivor".The show slowed for the next segment, with Mysak returning to the stage and standing at a spot-lit podium. The crowd got its first look at the dancing fountain, which rose and fell in time to the music.A pair of dancer-acrobats delivered a beautifully choreographed romantic number, spinning together in the air from ropes, as a tunnel of water fell from the ceilings around them.Though it offered some rather typical acts, the dancing fountain was an interesting addition to a circus performance, and something not seen in many other shows produced in the region.
