I wish I had read the reviews before I booked tickets. I normally love Cirque du Soleil shows but not this one. The visual effects were stunning but there were no fantastic jaw dropping acts I have come to expect. My husband wanted to leave...More

Not the same as the previous show totem.. we clapped till our hands sore. For this show, we are trying to cover my mouth from yawning. What a drag ! So expensive and not worth the $.

Visually, as in set and prop design, very well done. Acrobatics and other circus skills we’ve come to expect from this outfit..., I’ve seen better high school performances.... Will definitely review the reviews before booking such as expensive show again...

This was a very disappointing experience, nothing like what you'd normally expect from a Cirque du Soleil, no acrobatics, just a story and lots of visuals, which isn't what I went for. Would not recommend.
