Loved every minute of it! The stage setting is simple, the costumes elaborate, the performers impressive and the songs a good mix of those we know and love and an extra few that fit quite well. The cherry on top is the location across the Harbour - the shuttle boat ride offers the perfect view! My suggestion: it's not even... More

The musical is expensive but very good. Singers have a very strong English accent though (they sing in German). Performance, stage, costumes, all very good.

Although we do not speak German, this was a lifetime experience- the scenography, the costumes, the airy dances and movements of the participants, the animals represented by the actors- beautiful and memorable

The tickets are expensive but well worth it. A polished show that still holds magic, especially for children. The whole experience could be improved by increasing the bar staff at peak periods to reduce the waiting time for guests.

We have been there in the arvo on Valentines Day. I must say, this is the most expensive musical I've ever seen and we sat in the second cheapest price range. Consider that this musical stays there, not need to bother in setting up the stage every now and then while touring around, it is unreasonable expensive. Anyway, I’ve seen... More

Was a great show. I really enjoyed being there with my family. My favorite things were not only the impressive costumes but also how the play was creating a connection between the audience and the actors. Especially the first scene was super catchy and directly took you in some kind of feeling of joy. Not a plus point for the... More
