「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

索拉奇藝坊

索拉奇藝坊





【明報專訊】長駐澳門威尼斯人度假村的加拿大太陽劇團將於周日表演後,結束合約。 由於票務表現不如人意,太陽劇團決定提早結束合約,該合約原長達10年,但在開幕3年半後,就提早完結。


是受否曲高和寡呢? 還是平平無奇?


【維基百科】Cirque du Soleil (English "Circus of the Sun"), is a Canadian entertainment company, self-described as a "dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment." Based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and located in the inner-city area of Saint-Michel, it was founded in Baie-Saint-Paul in 1984 by two former street performers, Guy Laliberté and Daniel Gauthier.


去澳門威尼斯人消費的一群是中國的暴發戶,偶然欣賞一吓歐西的表演,話可以提升品味,返到去告訴別人,看過索拉奇藝坊,威威一番? 倒不如孭個戴個 LV,Hermes,Cartier 之類正貨畀人見到威啲!


長期來說這批暴發戶,會繼續買票入場嗎?酒店送票都未必有人會去看,不如入賭場賭多兩手好過喇!!!


【維基百科】Zaia is a Cirque du Soleil stage production based at The Venetian Macao on the Cotai Strip in Macau. The 90-minute show opened in August 2008 and brings together 75 high-calibre artists from around the world.

Zaia is Cirque du Soleil's first resident show in Asia and is directed by Neilson Vignola and Gilles Maheu. The theater housing the performance can seat 1,800 spectators during a single show.

Zaia opened in 2008 and had a rough start due to low audience numbers. But "ticket sales have gone up" with the addition of new Chinese-style elements such as a lion dance performance and a flying dragon.

Despite higher box office sales Cirque du Soleil show 'Zaia' is still recording losses in 2011, Sands China president Edward Tracy revealed on 18 November 2011. The Venetian Macau show remains "the only business sector that doesn’t make a profit," he added.

Criticism from Sands China chairman Sheldon Adelson led to rumours that the 10-year contract of Zaia would be terminated earlier.



Zaia opened in 2008 and had a rough start due to low audience numbers. But "ticket sales have gone up" with the addition of new Chinese-style elements such as a lion dance performance and a flying dragon. 要中國觀眾,在中國地方,又是看看舞龍舞獅?等執笠喇!


我記得“法國癲馬脫衣舞團”在澳門表演過很久,現在還有嗎?

後後記:

慘劇發生了 。。。。。


【星島日報】享譽全球的太陽劇團(Cirque du Soleil),在美國賭城拉斯維加斯演出大型劇目「KA」期間發生致命意外,一名女演員突然自50呎高空失手墮下身亡,現場觀眾都目睹這宗慘劇,無不目瞪口呆。

這相信是太陽劇團近30年表演歷史中首次發生致命意外,慘死的女演員居亞爾(Sarah Guyard-Guillot),在法國巴黎出生,現年31歲,育有兩名子女,是一名資深雜技藝人。

她上周六晚(2013-6-29)在拉斯維加斯美高梅(MGM Grand)酒店參與「KA」騷演出期間,突從50呎高的垂直舞台頂端直墮地面,送院搶救無效不治。




【Chicago Sun-Time】Tragedy happened in Las Vegas. June 29th 2013 a Paris-born performer in Cirque du Soleil’s “Ka” died after a fall during a show in Las Vegas.

Sarah Guyard-Guillot was pronounced dead late Saturday night at a hospital after falling about 50 feet from the show’s stage.

Witnesses told the Las Vegas Sun (http://bit.ly/14H3Te0 ) that the accident occurred near the end of the production Saturday night at the MGM Grand.

Visitor Dan Mosqueda of Colorado Springs, Colo., said the 31-year-old acrobatic performer was being hoisted up the side of the stage when it appeared that she slipped free of her safety wire and plummeted to an open pit below the stage.

“Initially, a lot of people in the audience thought it was part of the (show),” he told the Sun. “But you could hear screaming, then groaning, and we could hear a female artist crying from the stage.”

The show momentarily continued, then stopped. Minutes after the accident, a recorded announcement informed audience members that refunds or vouchers to future shows would be offered, and the crowd was dismissed.

劉朗兄:在賭城拉斯維加斯就有:
Treasure Island, Las Vegas
Bellagio, Las Vegas
New York-New York, Las Vegas
MGM Grand, Las Vegas
The Mirage, Las Vegas
Luxor, Las Vegas
都是 索拉奇藝坊 包攬表演。

澳門的賭成仍然是賭為主,未去到 Vegas 的消閒娛樂渡假的模式/層次,最終還是中港客人未入流也被抬舉了。

exactly la...同胞未懂欣賞啦! 不過我又唔知 Venetian 有無送free tickets 給賭客們, 引佢地貪便宜來賭, 家人朋友也谷旺入住率消費. i know this is what vegas do for their club members (gamblers!).

華人賭性之重,係可以老豆姓乜都唔知嘅,所以澳門控易 KO Las Vegas 咯!

劉朗兄所言甚是!華人在美加也是賭城的常客 target customers,華埠有定時賭場免費巴士接送往返,一天十數班 shuttle bus,除了賭客賭徒,很多的老華僑去消磨時間,或去吃特平自助餐。
