“Aspiring to be like Cirque de Soleil”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

A very good attempt to become the Cirque of Asia. There is a storyline, but there are so many distractions (motorcycles!) that they end up detracting.

All in all an experience worth going to while in Macau. Beware of the seats close to the arena - you will get splashed!

“Total crowd pleaser...would watch again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

I invested in front row water splash seats to watch this show as a treat on the first day of our family vacation...at the end of the show, in the auditorium hallway, my family said to me "how will the holiday you have planned for us ever top this first day?!"

With ages ranging from 70s to early 20s, activities that would please all was a challenge to plan. But I am happy to say that the House of Dancing Water was a total crowd pleaser and everyone was left exhilarated and in sheer awe by the end of the show!

The show offers super cool stunts and graciously distinct choreography put together with exquisite backdrops and a moving soundtrack. The diversity of the dancers, their agility and precise moves, and their stunning costumes were all great features. The design and versatility of the stage and the sheer engineering genius behind it is the highlight.

I can vouch that we would all watch this show again and you should too!

“Great show!!! Fantastic experience!!a night to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Just returned from seeing this show....! Something for everyone!! Had a family of 5 there and we were so impressed with everything about the show. The artists are amazing!!! And so much going on at times did not want to miss a second. Still trying to work out how the stage functions as the water stunts were the highlight for me. My husband & son were v impressed with the motorbike stunts and that adds a different dimension to the show. The theatre was warm and comfortable and the snacks quite reasonable, just allow some time to get there as it takes time as everything is so big in Macau!!!
