Cirque du Soleil celebrated its return to Australia earlier this week with the Australian premiere performance of its all-new mesmerizing production TOTEM at The Entertainment Quarter in Sydney. To mark the event, a host of celebrities walked the red carpet prior to entering the intimate setting of the blue-and-yellow big top and falling for the magic of the Cirque du Soleil experience.
Guests included: Claudia Karvan, Guy Sebastian, Luke Burgess, Kate Peck, Manu Feildel, Tim Dormer, Pia Miller, Camilla Franks, Melissa Doyle, Jordan Stenmark, Luke Jacobz, Rob Mills and many others.
Audiences and critics alike loved TOTEM and gave the show a full standing ovation.
