SINGAPORE – In his first encounter with a Cirque du Soleil performance, Mr Michel Laprise – then a young boy in Quebec City – was moved to tears.
“I heard the music from a distance and followed it. I lifted the canvas and started to cry. I didn’t know it was possible to do something so beautiful with so much ethnic diversity. I asked my father to let me watch the show that same night, and I watched it again the next day,” recalls Mr Laprise, who declines to reveal his age.
