Whilst holidaying in HK we took the ferry to Macau and stayed in the venetian one night, unfortunately on this night there were no tickets available to the show so we decided to make a special trip back to Macau to go to the show. We were not disappointed and so glad we took the time and effort to travel... More

Watched it alone during my stay in Macau and was thoroughly impressed. They say it is HK$ 2 billion production and the grandeur really shows. It is a mix of acrobatics, aerial acts, water performances, bike stunts, gymnastics etc and all the performances carry the story forward. It captivates your attention for the good 90 minutes it runs and is... More

This show is simply spectacular. It's worth every penny. It will be entertaining for all ages and all walks of life. If you have not seen this show, you must do so immediately. I can not recommend it enough. We sat in section 400 which is A reserve, 4 rows from the front in the splash section. We were given... More

This is a relatively new dance show in macau currently in the city of dreams in Macau (think Vegas of China). The show is highly entertaining and I have never seen anything like it before. It has dancing, water shows, stunt bikes and a romance story. It does seem over the top and a bit contrived but somehow it managed... More

The performance is nice and fantastic, my seat was in the first raw in B zone, which they will prepare towers in case you get wet!! We're lucky, the first raw in B zone is the best place coz we can see the performance in very detail, sometimes I even can see their make-up on the face, and the price... More

As we were getting late for the show ,so we ran for it and i... More

The show was just amazing , though the story at times did not make sense but individual performances were just brilliant and holding it all together for that much time really requires true concentration. I still think that the price was a bit too high but a must do once activity when in Macau ....

So hard to explain this - Cirque de Soleil on water. Jumping, diving, swimming...completely unique and totally unforgettable. Plenty of peril to keep you on the edge of the seat, humour and just generally spectacular. Go see it!

What an amazing show this is with the integrated story line, amazing automated stage changes in seconds and the beautiful fountains and amazing performances by the crew. A must see attraction when in Macau. Colors abound and the whole show will make your day and your vacation.

You will love this if you want a show that has thrills, romance, dancing and acrobatics. Was a feast for the eyes. We felt however it was a little too 'showy' and felt like they were adding in acts to 'wow' when it wasn't really needed (and sometimes strange) in the story line. We did however, really enjoy the night.
