DENVER -- Before you read any further, please check out the pictures of the Cirque du Soleil photo gallery ! But even then, those photos won't do the show justice. 

It doesn't even begin to express how monumental the stage was or how the colors hit you with eyes with wonder. From the start, the creativity and originality of the performance never stops wowing the crowd with a plethora of acrobatics, choreography and a set of colorful landscapes of endless possibilities. 

Cirque du Soleil comes every summer but usually in a tent -- but not this year! This year's show "Toruk: The First Flight" is a James Cameron-inspired Avatar-based story that needs almost a whole side of the Pepsi Center for its gigantic stage to be filled with fires, rivers, waterfalls and epic battles. 

You can watch a Cirque du Soleil show on TV or see some pictures here , but if you ever get a chance to see it live it'll be worth every penny!

The way they transform the Pepsi Center into the world of Pandora is a nice way to escape for a couple of hours and be awed in a way that, you'll probably never want to miss another show the next time they come back to town in the summer.
