“An experience you won't forget!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

The performers are so talented and there is so much to look at.......most times there are things going on up high at the same time as things going on at stage-level. It is pricey, but we managed to get a special, discounted rate (which I can't recall how). As someone else said, the little girls who do the wooden "yo-yo" rope act are the darlings of the show, but all the performers AND the singers and musicians are excellent. If I had to critique one thing, it is that the show is 90 minutes with no intermission and, as with most theater-seats, there isn't much leg room (or elbow room) and that got uncomfortable for me by the end of the show. Folks with a baby about 10 months old were next to us and even that child was mesmerized and behaved nicely for the entire show. It is nice that they have booster seats for kids, too. One point to note: If you get the most expensive seats, you will find yourself looking up at an extreme angle for much of the show. We had been tipped off about this by someone else and selected Category 2 seats instead and we realized we had "better" seats that way....even though they are cheaper seats! No stiff necks from craning to see things! It was a wonderful evening for us.

“Loads of talent here!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We really enjoyed this performance. It is totally worth the effort to go and see this show while you are in Orlando! It is pricey, but once you've seen the show, you will realize it is worth the money! The only negative was that I had to pay full price for my ten year old...most venues have discounts for children 12 and under, but at Cirque de soliel the age for children is 3-9.

“Another Great Cirque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

My husband and I really enjoy Cirque shows. The ones in the permanent locations seem to be our favorites. La Nouba was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the little girls who did the rope/yo-yo act. We also enjoyed the downtown Disney area before and after the show.

“Fun and imaginative!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

What did I like about it? Everything. Have seen 4 different Cirque shows and this one doesn't disappoint. Music fabulous, sets excellent, and the players/acrobats so very talented. The show will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Beware sitting center stage, front...you may end up being a stage prop for the bicycle act! :)
