beautiful place – love this placeits a very good place to heng out
This show was extremely disappointing .Go to "O" instead. – I've seen all the Cirque Shows and this one is my least favorite.
I can't believe that i was fall sleep in this show.
I enjoyed "O" more than any other Cirque show and recommend that one above all others.
Fantastic show – First off, if you're expecting a typical Cirque show with nothing but acrobatics, then you're likely to be disappointed. Ka is more like a ballet with the option to use "in the air" as a performance area. There were some amazing acrobatics and other tricks (the twirler was particularly good, she did things I've never seen anyone else do!), the focus is more on the story, so it's less of an all-out acrobatic-fest.
That said, the performance was amazing. I chose it over the others because it did seem more like a ballet- something I enjoy- and it did not disappoint. The stage was an amazing piece of work- sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not, sometimes it's vertical, sometimes it's on an incline- just seeing what they did with the stage next was fantastic fun. The performers did a great job and the guy who played the bodyguard for the twins was amazing- my only complaint was that he didn't get more stage time!
The music was great and the story was easy to follow. The pre-show shows were fun and the speakers inside the seats were a surprise and added a lot to the experience. If you just want to see one acrobatic trick after another, pick a different Cirque show. If you want to watch a cross between a ballet and aerial kung-fu flicks, this is the show for you.
Save your money and go to "O" instead. – I've seen all the Cirque Shows and this one is my least favorite. For the amount of money that was spent (over $400 for 4 people not including $37 for 3 waters and 1 bag of popcorn) I certainly expected a better show. They even refused to give us the standard "Locals Discount".
Just seemed like performers were going through the motions. I enjoyed "O" more than any other Cirque show and recommend that one above all others.
Overall it was a huge disappointment.
Weak storyline; great special effects and stunts – I guess I went to this show expecting something more spectacular. There were a few scenes that were pretty amzaing. But the story line was so weak it was hard to follow and understand. A few unneeded characters ...would have liked to have seen more pyrotechnics during the show and more arial stunts over the audience. The floating rotating stage was amazing...still trying to figure that one out. Could use a finale overhaul.
Disappointing – I've seen 4 other Cirque shows in Vegas. This is the worst one in my opinion. For the price, your better off checking out any of the other 4. I agree with a previous post when it was stated that the performers were not very impressive. I usually leave Cirque with a sense of awe and amazement. That was not the case with this show. Fight scenes did not look real, they made shadow puppets, and the acrobatics were almost non-existent. The highlight is the costumes, the stage itself, and the two long-haired guys that were in the large spinning contraption towards the end. The soundtrack was also very well done.
Par for the Cirque – I will preface this by saying I participate in combat arts and I grew up watching various Cirque du Soleil shows. That being said, this show was very average, for Cirque. I was more entranced by the sets, costuming, and lighting than by most of the show itself. In fact, parts of the show were serious yawners. Non-martial arts fanatics may be impressed by the sloppy Wushu and stylized fights, which comments from the exiting crowd seemed to indicate. I wasn't. I wasn't at all impressed by the physical abilities of the performers, not when the very traditional Cirque show Mystere is still running, and IMHO, superior in that aspect. The music was good and very rock influenced, which is a nice change of pace from the usual ethereal choral base. If choosing a Cirque show to see in Vegas, my recommendation would still go to O at Bellagio.
it was ok... – perhaps not may favorite cirque, but there's so many in vegas... how can one compete? if you must watch: 1.) reserve early and ask for the first row balcony. those are the best seats for your money, even if they tell you that there's not a bad seat in the house; 2.) come early, they may ask you to be part of the show; and, 3.) watch your drinks. what you think is a table may really be part of the stage. but, don't fear, there are cupholders on the seats themselves.
WOW!!!! – This is the best show in the strip. The script, the stage and evrything else is exsquisite. From the massive floating stage to the depths of the abyss things, including a sinking ship, fall into strain your mind in awe. Enchanted forest and creatures to snow storms with falling ice projected skyward keep you asking "what else can they think of?" Expensive but worth every penny.
AWESOME – This show is guaranteed to shake you out of your seat. The speakers are wired into every seat and the score is exsquisite. From the massive floating stage to the depths of the abyss things, including a sinking ship, fall into strain your mind in awe. Enchanted forest and creatures to snow storms with falling ice projected skyward keep you asking "what else can they think of?" Worth every cent of the $125.00-$150.00 ticket price.
