The Barclays Center is fantastic and having Cirque du Soleil play there was bonus. It is always an entertaining show of art, music and acrobatics. While I prefer to see them under the tent shows, this wasn't too bad. This is one of the older touring troupe and some of the performances sequence are always cool, it is dating itself.
I also think this is more of an adult circus. It isn't B&B and from other shows it isn't appropriate to bring younger kids because frankly they aren't interested or have the attention span. Yet, I see parents bring them every time. Some squirm like ants in their pants, constantly talk and finally just good to sleep.

“It was what we expect from the circus … clowns, beautiful athletes, fabulous costumes, and remarkable feats of artistry, poise, sensuality and balance.” —ReviewVancouver.org
“The sheer virtuosity of these performers is enough to leave your head spinning.” —Mercury News
Young Zoé is bored; her parents, distant and apathetic, ignore her. Her life has lost all meaning. Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imaginary world – the world of Quidam – where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul.
Quidam: a nameless passer-by, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the “quidam” whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons – a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity.
