Out of this world!

The most incredible show I have ever seen, highly recommend this (have been twice already and can't wait to go again). It is a stunning performance and a definite MUST SEE.

A magnificent show worth watching. I have watched this twice now - same story/concept but each time I was amazed by the idea and the performances. There were differences but both times I was blown. The creation of such a show with the structures and the technology, what must it require?

I had a great time at the show. Though there are other shows on Las Vegas strip that can be considered better, on it's own, it's definitely a great experience.

The show is the only real reason to go to Macau, its fantastic!!! Takes away from the tacky casinos and fake structures that have been put up lately. Excellent entertainment.

By far the most spectacular show I have ever seen! You can not compare this show to anything else in the world. Tickets were not cheap, but worth every penny. For more excitement try and get the first couple rows. You may get wet, but you're almost part of the show! From start to finish this show will amaze and... More

This show is out of this world and well worth every penny. The opening scene blew us away as did the rest of the show. 1.5 hours just wasn't long enough. The acrobats, the acting, the lighting and the stage itself were incredible. A must see if you are visiting Macau. I would even travel to Macau just to see... More

An experience like never before for a show It's the most expensive show ever put together (estimated USD 250 million) A story of East meets west of a love between a western sailor and eastern princess. Coupled with water effects, aerialist, contourtist, stunt riders, dancers. I estimate about 100 performers with another 60 backstage hands and front of house engineers.... More
