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.

This is a theatrical production that is an artistic interpretation of Maui's culture and history. The performers are talented and the show was just long enough to feel like an event yet kept the attention of our kids ages 10-17. There is a certain lot you can park in and they will validate your parking for 4 hours-very nice as... More

Have seen this several times already but keep going back! Enjoyed the dance and Hawaiian legends. Comfortable indoor theater at reasonable prices. Enjoy the performance and have dinner for a special night out!

A terrible show. Everything is in Hawaiian language, So unless you know Hawaiian you can't understand what is being said or sang. No story line. Most entertaining was the band in the pit and the acrobat. I would not waste my time or money on this show again. Do Not recommended.

Through music and dance, the show outlines the history of the Hawaiian people. It has a lot to offer in a 90-minute show. Most of the songs are in the Hawaiian language but a flyer explains the storyline. There are acrobatics, colourful dancers and interesting sets. At times the actors interact with the audience. I enjoyed it immensely and I... More

We hadn't planned on attending the Ulalena show, but we won a 2 for 1 from our concierge so we decided to check it out and it was well worth it! It's a small theatre, I don't think there is a bad seat but we had the platinum seats (closest to the stage) and it was great. It's a beautiful... More
