Our family of 3 enjoyed this show in Lahaina. The music, dance and vocals were beautiful. A great way to learn about Hawaiian culture and history. The venue is small so pretty much any seat is good. We had gold level seats, which were great.

I wasn't sure what to expect but was very happy with the performance. The music was inspirational, the dancing authentic and energetic. The storyline moved along. I would recommend this for all couples and families as there was something even for the youngsters.

Loved the production. I enjoyed the stage action as well as the musicians in the loft. The story was intriguing. The dancers and vocals did an excellent job. Not a run of the mill Hawaiian show. If you like something contemporary and out of the box, check Ulalena out!!!

5 minutes into the play and I was crying tears of joy, I couldn't control myself and I had no idea what had come over me but their voices were so beautiful. The story line confused me at some points but they give you a leaflet to explain each scene in detail. Make sure you get there early and sort... More

I saw this show tonight with 2 friends. Totally enjoyed the creative interpretation of the legends of the people, nature and the islands. The artists are excellent. Applause! Applause! I would recommend it to people visiting Maui. The show is family friendly. There are discount tickets online. Just plan ahead to purchase. We got 50% off tickets.

This is a great show by very talented performers. It is in Hawaiian so if you know nothing of the history and culture of the Islands, then the meaning may be lost on you, but the performance is still worth the cost. I went with friends who have seen the performance previously. I would go again. The performance lasts about... More

The show was impressive, it's all in hawaiian. I enjoyed watching it but I thought it wasn't worth as much money as we paid for it. Buy the basic seats, you can't tell a difference in the theater.

I've seen this show 3 times over the past ten years and still am awed by the singing, staging and dancing. Its the perfect end to a day out on the water. Its Maui's mythic history meets Cirque de Soleil. Beautiful and educational. My kids loved it as teens and as twenty year olds.
