That's what you would have found on Nov. 22 in the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, where the Cirque Musica Holiday Spectacular was held.

Rick Droski, from the Bobcat Ticket Office, said that they have had several variations of the Cirque shows as part of their Broadway in Bozeman series. The series has been held for over a decade at the fieldhouse. 

This year, the nearly two-hour-long performance was filled with feats of strength, acrobatics, flashing lights, sequins, singing and dancing.

A captivated audience watches the Cirque Musica Holiday Spectacular on Monday, Nov. 22, 2021, at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse.

The show loosely follows three spoiled, technology-obsessed kids whose wish to be alone puts them in an unexpected situation. When their wish is granted by a passing shooting star, an adventure ensues.

By the end, the audience is left with a parable about the importance of family and togetherness.

Sprinkled into the plot is a series of gravity-defying stunts by the performers in the Cirque Musica troupe.

The group began their tour two weeks ago in Modesto, California. After performing in Bozeman, they will travel to 17 more states, before eventually ending their journey on Jan. 2, 2022 in Corpus Christi, Texas.
