The stage, the lighting, the costume, the ornaments are perfect and give so much entertaiment to the audience. it's one of the colosal stage art performing. But the seats is too tight and close one to another, so it's not comfortable if you seat behind a tall or big people. Anyway, it's a recommended show, you should watch it while... More

This "living museum" engages you well. We had dinner in a restaurant there before we attended the show. The food was good, and the service attentive. The show was interesting, amusing, sometimes surprising and certainly spectacular - especially the cannons, the lake that appears and the waterfalls. A must see, particularly if you have been to the museum and have... More
