    Very nice, and just in time for Christmas. Unfortunately, DDD's bi-annual sale will likely be held prior to its release, which means I'll have to hold off on this purchase until next spring.

    I really... really... want to start buying some Cirque du Soleil sets. This looks wonderful! Are these 11 productions exclusive to this set? What are the key sets that worth buying first? PM me if you want, thank you.

    oh, and Ken or anyone else, have you heard when the DDD sale is supposed to be on?

    I believe this is the only Cirque "set" unless by "set" you mean the individual discs. Reading the description, aside from the Bonus DVD, it sounds like it's just all of the currently available Cirque discs packaged together in a nice box. You'll occasionally see Bravo airing either Varekai or Quidam (and they never seem to set the anamorphic setting correctly when they air Quidam, heh!).

    The only possible omission is that the included Quidam is probably the regular version instead of the available Superbit version (not sure if any of the other Cirque discs ever got the Superbit treatment).

    When you consider the current prices for the individual releases, the collection is an amazing deal.

    Thank you Sean!

    So, this collection [​IMG] contains about every release except for Solstrom and other series? I wish there was some text to go along with the pic, [​IMG]

    Looks like a repackaging of existing releases.

    If they were mean, they would throw in 'O' as a set exclusive.

    I doubt we'll ever see either 'O' or 'Zumanity' in a DVD release - aren't both of those shows exclusive to their respective Las Vegas hotel?

    I think you are right, Sean, but one could hope. I won't trade the experience of seeing 'O' from front-row center (and even getting pulled up on-stage by one of the clowns). But I won't pay $150 to see it again.

    Now $20 for a DVD...

    La Nouba is also a permanent show, and there's a DVD.

    Isn't La Nouba at a Disney resort in Orlando? I've always been under the impression that Vegas venues (particularly nowadays) are rather stringent with their exclusive show properties (the ones that are more family accessible anyway). For instance, the fact that Avenue Q is playing at a Vegas hotel is currently preventing any touring production of that Broadway show.

    I have the single release of La Nouba. It's a 2-DVD set. Are they dropping the extras disc?
