In Pictures: Cirque du Soleil brings magic to Royal Albert Hall
The new show runs until February 26.
Performers from Cirque du Soleil have taken to the arena at the Royal Albert Hall for a dress rehearsal of their show Totem, which gets under way on Saturday.
Organisers said the show will take the audience on a “stunning journey into the evolution of mankind”.
The world-famous circus troupe formed in the early 1980s in a small town near Quebec, and went on to achieve stardom, touring around the world, from Las Vegas to Rio – and now returns to London.
