A must see. A wonderful show put on by very talented artists. The price is very affordable and the seating good. The orchestra was incredible, just 2 men playing multiple instruments, such talent. Gives the audience a great understanding of ancient Hawaii.

I I took my 70+ year old parents to this show--dinner beforehand--and all of us were blown away. My dad enjoyed the history and the costumes and the special effects. My mother enjoyed the dancing and chanting and the props. I enjoyed it all. We booked via the kiosk on Front Street and walked up--we booked the dinner package at... More

This is our 3rd time - it is still moving to see - the show is a little different - which is actually nice - it is a lovely and touching experience - definitely entertaining for everyone. The props, the music, the players, the dancing - a very special production.

A mix of history, visual effects ans music. A must see. There are nine scenes, from "The Beginning...", about the cration, to "The Regeneratig Forces of Nature...", about life beginning again after the Volcano explosion. I was very surprised with a song in Portuguese.

I thought the show was wonderful and the music as well. Every seat is a very good view the drummer really put on a show.

Talented performers dance an incredible choreography of Hawaii creation and history...not be missed! Educational, a little humorous, a little sad and a lot of talent.

I cried and grieved for the Hawaiian way of life after the arrival of Captain Cook on the islands. A story of the spirit of Hawaii, the tree Spirits, Pele, Ulalena and Spirit of Aloha. This is a beautiful story with soul told with dance, song and the intense beat of the drum....the heartbeat if Mother Esrth. I will go... More

Stunning choreography and stage settings. Colorful and extremely well produced and excellent cast. Drums can be a little loud (but that could be just my grand childrens take) they loved everything else. They loved meeting the cast after the show. Well worth seeing.
