This show at times was spectacular. We loved the "fish" throughout the theatre, Ariel act, "lava flow", backlight screen, stilt walking, and "water" seen. However, certain parts of the show were grueling slow. If each scene were shortened by 5 mins it would have been 5 stars for me. The actors and costumes were good. They tried hard but it... More

Great show. Beautiful. I definitely recommend it. The dancers do a great job and the story is lovely. You'll come away with a better understanding of Hawaiian culture.

This is a well done presentation, well costumed, with a creative and effective orchestra positioned high on the right in the handsome 700 seat theater. But I wouldn't go again. An interpretive production of the Hawaiian story sung entirely in Hawaiian with some interpretation in English it loses a lot by being a slipshod interpretation of Hawaiian history, especially post...

If you are going to Maui, you must go see Ullena at the Maui Theatre in Lahaina. This is one of the best attractions and for years the story and its depiction will remain as a lovely image in your mind. This was great for the adults and the kids / teens enjoyed it as well. Beautiful story. Beautiful stage... More

This is my 8th time seeing this extraordinary show. I see and feel something new each time. It is the story of Hawaii in an unique presentation. An experience not to be missed. My friends had never seen it. They were impacted by the music, the pagentry, stunning theatre presentation. The music is dynamic, haunting and emotional. It is a... More

We spent a delightful evening at the Maui Theater exploring the history of the Hawaiian Islands thru song, chant and dance. This was an outstanding and memorable performance and we are anxious to return and take our family.

We were very surprised with the professionalism of this show. All of the performers are very talented, from the singers to the acrobatics, to the dancers. Great show, we both loved it. They were given a 2 curtain standing ovation.

Would totally recommend this show over a luau as it is such a great experience. The show is beautifully choreographed and the dancers and singers are very talented. The musicians are amazing to watch and sometimes took all our attention with their sheer talent. We would totally recommend this show as a much more authentic Hawaiian experience

We are in Maui for 2 weeks and attended Ulalena. Loved it. Powerful, informative, great Dance and performance. We recommend it strongly. It is a very good value for what one gets in a show. A fraction of same type of performance in big cities on the mainland. The 2 hour performance should not be missed when you visit Maui.... More
