I agree with the many Reviewers of this show. It truly is amazing. The scale of the production, the cast, the costuming, the incredible sets, the music, the lights - NO EXPENSE HAS BEEN SPARED. So as not to spoil the experience, I won't talk about the story etc. But I will say that the tickets (which I initially considered... More

Amazing!! Friends living in Hong Kong told me to go and see this show. I couldn't take my eyes off it the entire night. The set was stunning and the costumes, acrobatics and dancing just stunning. We booked seats down the front and it was definitely worth paying that little bit more. I loved every minute!!

I couldn't get my eyes off during the whole show. It was so beautiful. The balanced fusion of ballet and Chinese dancing movement, the mixture of western and eastern art in one fine performance, telling a love story between an asian girl and a european man. Supported by a smart use of technology to create special visual effects, it's really... More

No regrets catching this show! The water stage, sets, acrobats and bike performance was truly amazing! The cast get up close and interact with the audience, esp if you're in the front row and you really feel like part of the performance with the occasional water splashes! One of the best theatre shows i've seen in a long time, am... More

If you are visiting Macau, this is definitely a must watch performance. Maybe the starting might be a bit boring but I can say this performance is worth every cents. It's been an amazing and astonishing experience. Really a big applause to the crews. If I am not wrong, the ticket costed me HKD 800. A gentle reminder will be... More

We loved this. My sons aged 9 and 6 sat open mouthed in amazement for 90 minutes. We have talked at length for days about how the stage worked. Where did the people go when they went underwater? The theatre is quite small so I don't think there is any reason to shell out for expensive seats. We were in... More
