The concept of this show
Totem takes you on a stunning journey into the Evolution of Mankind! Here, you will see the original amphibian state to our ultimate quest for flight. The show TOTEM is alternating between primitive and modern myths. It is peppered with aboriginal stories of creation and explores the evolutionary process of species. It can be considered our ongoing search for balance. Also, it can be associated with the curiosity that propels us ever further, faster, and higher.
Cirque du Soleil returns to the Royal Albert Hall with TOTEM!
Above all, Cirque du Soleil’s has mind-blowing signature acts. The Cirque is returning with TOTEM to London, after record-breaking previous seasons. In my opinion, TOTEM is an unforgettable spectacle for all ages and the perfect way to have a special day in London.

I do reccomend
If you wanna have an extra special experience, you can book a dinner at the Royal Albert Hall before. We did this and, as a result, we’ve got a really nice evening! The restaurant where we’ve been dining to is called Coda and it is situated at level 3.
Michelin-awarded chef Éric Chavot brings his gastronomic expertise to Coda Restaurant at the Royal Albert Hall, with a menu of seasonal dishes inspired by his love of traditional French cooking
However, the Royal Albert Hall has some more pre-dinner locations though.
My opinion about the show
In conclusion, Vegas? London? Anywhere! Modern circus is something I am really looking forward to attending anytime I have the opportunity! To sum up, ‘Totem’ by Cirque du Soleil is a real rollercoaster and you go for the ride!
First of all, this show brings the real spectacle in your life and the venue is really fabulous.
Also, there’s a giant, skeleton-like acrobatics structure, a mechanised bridge that unfurls into different shapes and
For me, this doesn’t sound like an ordinary afternoon at all! So I can not wait for another Cirque du Soleil show in London next year. Or maybe we will just go straight to Vegas for an entertainment tour!
