Cirque du Soleil makes Michael Jackson immortal

Michael Jackson was a legend. His lyrics, dance moves and power-house voice made him a force to be reckoned with until his death October 2, 2011.

Since then, Cirque du Soleil has kept the legend alive through Jamie King's direction of "Michael Jackson: The Immortal Tour". The show tells a story of Michael Jackson's creativity: where it came from, how he acquired it and what his inner world might have looked like.  

Jackson fans can revel in the songs as they're performed in a completely different way. The theatrics are turned up a notch as performers come out in LED costumes and perform intricate dance numbers, choreographed by Travis Payne.

Bettina Bolzer-Bowles is the costume manager for the show. She makes sure every costume is perfect. She says it's a hard job but it's rewarding.

"The costumes are just beautiful," she says.

Bettina loves working on the show, touring to different, exotic places.

“You work with these people so closely all the time. We’re like a big family,” she says.

The challenge of touring is the long hours and making sure the costumes are absolutely perfect.

“Sometimes you’re working late at night and you don’t get [much sleep] and you have to do it all over again the next day. It’s difficult,” she says.

Despite the challenges, the show is sure to entice audiences and the Nashville audience as "Michael Jackson: The Immortal Tour" comes to Music City June 12.

To get a taste of what you'll see you can check out Cirque du Soleil's website for videos, pictures and a summary of the show.

to refrain from blogging about something that is just "on my mind." The thing is that when I do, I get crickets from my readers. They really do know what they want from me: public relations, technology and career posts. When I stray from that--even if it's really good stuff!--my audience just doesn't respond as well. Rather than fight it, I obey!kredi hesaplama-evim şahane
