The O2 , Greenwich Peninsula Friday July 19 2013 20:00

Cirque du Soleil are churning out shows these days with a rather depressing regularity, but this one is a tried and tested show (a “classic” in the company's PR-speak) that has been seen by more than 10 million people. It stops in at two London arenas, Wembley and the O2, in July as part of a UK tour. It's difficult to see the circus troupe as anything other than a well-oiled money-making machine in which story-telling always comes second to commercial opportunity, but there's no doubting the incredible physical abilities of the athletes.
