An excellent show. I believe it shows a snapshot of the history of Brazil through dances. It would be nice if there is a short description of every dance projected on the side of the stage during each performance. This way the audience will appreciate...More

The dancers were amazing and our children really enjoyed the whole show despite falling asleep towards the end. I would really recommend to anyone. Seems a safe area in Leblon. Staff all spoke English.

Quite entertaining. Theater was a little dingy. Seems like they have been doing the same show for years. It was just average and focused more on regional dances than on a Carnival style show that we were expecting.

Was great experience with very intense dances and different style. That said if you’re used to Las Vegas shows this is different.

Booked tickets at ticket booth, after Uber from Copacabana Hotel (cheapest Option); Great intimate show, though venue conditions could be improved (very musty). Samba lesson not to write home about. Artists were spectacular though. Interactive was invited to join in on stage at end.

The dancers were amazing. Beautiful, fit, and talented! However, the auditorium smelled, the seats were uncomfortable, and the lighting in the back was poor. Also, the attendants walked the entire time providing constant distraction! I left with a feeling that the excursion was overpriced.

You can get the tickets online or at the hotel. The show is less than 1/2 an hour from your hotel. The show is about 1 1/2 hours long. Very good show, I recommend it.
