We wenr to see cirque del soleil Kooza yesterday. IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD. Amazing show. Excellent acrobats. So much talent. Mixed with humour and outstanding live music and lightening. We were sitting in second row in front, perfect. So exciting thrilling performances. Highly recommended. The royal albert hall is so a great building. Cant wait to go again

We visited the Albert Hall for the first time to see Cirque du Soleil - Kooza and were thrilled with the whole evening. We were delighted on arrival to find we were in a box with a fantastic view of the whole performance, which was breathtaking so recommend getting a seat in one of the boxes. It was an amazing...

We saw Cirque du Soleil (Kooza) and were blown away by the skill, the production level, the costumes and the range of talent. The two guys on the wheel of death are just breath-taking. The Albert Hall is just a pleasure to visit and so well designed. The rake of the seating is such that the view is clear over... More

What a fantastic show ! The acts were excellent and kept us on the edge of our seats, especially the high wire and wheel of death.All complimented by good musicians and singers. An all round great experience.

We visited the Royal Albert Hall for the first time to see Cirque du Soleil - Kooza and we were not disappointed. The whole show was brilliant with a particular mention to the two guys who performed on the Wheel of Death which was breathtaking. A great show and venue.

Really lovely and beautiful old building. Great atmosphere but not sure if it was just the performance I saw or in general but if anyone in the audience coughs or talks it carries across the whole hall.

This was my first visit to the Albert Hall, which was a special experience just in itself. Tip top staff, who are all polite and helpful. We arrived with lots of time to spare and enjoyed looking at the numerous photos around the walkways. Good cafe too. The only negatives were the long queues for the lavatories and also staff...

A fabulous place. Staff were polite and helpful. Food was also good. The only down side was that they dont allow you enough time to get back to your seat before the show start. Long queues for toilets and for my mother who is 82 it takes her longer to get around. They are also obsessed with cameras and phones... More

Wow. This show is breathtaking, heart stopping and moving. What incredible, talented performers! Having done little to none research into these shows, I was pleasantly surprised at how not only the acrobatic show was so incredible but also the humour! I simply cannot say more to justify this amazing show. I will now be purchasing tickets for every year they... More
