    The stage itself is its own talent
    Excellent! The acrobats, the choreography, the story telling and the immersive experience is amazing. There were some cheesy silly parts. The rainforest acrobats part was beautiful. Very talented cast. The things they do with the stage and the way they use it throughout the show was jaw dropping. Absolutely recommend.

    Best show for the action
    Best circus show sofar. Lot of artists interaction, the action is so close that you feel in the Play! As ever with cirque du soleil, all types of talents are shown. Our kids (10-12) were impressed and realy loved everything about IT. I would say that there were approximatly 15 minutes that they would have Cut.

    Not as thrilling as other Cirque shows
    I got the VIP backstage tour, which made this show cool. When you see the 13 stories behind the scenes it makes it come together better. Kinda pricey. The show itself is supposedly the only one with a plot but misses out on what the other shows have. I think I enjoyed Mystere a little more as far as the show is concerned. I'm still trying to see all the Cirque shows I can. Over all not bad just different
    Hey there, thanks so much for sharing your feedback. We sincerely hope your next Cirque du Soleil experience surpasses your expectations with dazzling colors!

    Great show
    We’ve seen a lot of Cirque shows, everyone is a bit different. This had some jaw dropping moments but the pacing is off at times which spoils some of the momentum it builds. It’s still and incredible show and the theatre and stage alone need to be seen to be believed.

In two words, don’t go. The show is overrated; probably need to get the hype going to get people to come so they can recoup how much they’ve spent on the moving stage.
This is what we saw: We paid over $120 a ticket to see shadow hand puppets segment that lasted nearly 10 minutes (it was really, really stupid), baton twirling and fake cheesy martial arts. The storyline was so boring that my friend and I almost fell asleep. The moving stage was interesting, and that is the only reason I would give the show a 2-star.

I wanted to love this, but came out feeling disappointed. Especially if you look at the money spent on a show of this caliber. What disappointed us was that this show did not have the acrobatics as other cirque shows.

The Good:
The stage is absolutely incredible. The way it moves and transforms. It was the most intriguing thing I have ever seen. The theatre is beautiful and it is eye catching with all the themed staging. There is no bad seat in the house. We were practically last row and could see everything fabulously. In fact, to take in the whole stage, I would sit mid upper level, whether in the first few rows in the middle or the mid upper middle rows (confusing I know but you get it right?).
The skill of the artists is profound and awe-inspiring. Really incredible.

The Bad:
The story line is hard to follow. The show really isn't in english, or maybe its fair to say that there really isn't any talking, just moaning and yelling. In the beginning there is someone that gives a brief idea of the story line is supposed to revolve around. I believe that KA refers to the village or place the story is set in. Its like pirate era vs Chinese or Japanese fighting and martial arts. Something along those lines. Like I said, hard to follow completely. So having said that, my point is, if you are looking for acrobatics and people flying from the ceilings, flips and tricks, you will not find that here really. There is more combat/fighting on the ground/stage level.

Also as a side note, don't even think you are going to use your cell phone during this show. There are all kinds of employees that lurk in the darkness of the theatre and they will come find you and tell you to turn off your phone. We were there during a not busy time, maybe only 200-300 people in this huge theater and we saw no less than 12 people be told to put there phones away. They tell you this before the show, but they obviously mean business.

The show had everything...acrobats, a 60 ton moving wall,shadow puppets, baton twirling, human body jugglers and martial artists, and the wheel of death. It was as my mother put it, "if i didn't see it with my own eyes, i couldn't believe humans could do half of that". It was family friendly, no english was spoken but, it was acted so well you know what was going on. I found the show one of the best I've seen in Vegas thus far. I would very highly recommend it....Happy travels!!!!

I saw this years ago and it was amazing. Dark, ominous and very high tempo. Was really looking forward to the second go around. Couldn't stop telling my girlfriend about it.

Was so disappointing. I realize December is a down time, but come on guys. You could see the big trapeze unit in the background that was the center piece of the show. Not once was it used. They never even bothered adding it to the show. I kept waiting, but it never came., Worst show ever. And as a Cirque lover, that's not easy for me to type!

You will want to see it again. The story, the scenery and scenes throughout were spectacular and without comparison. Wait til you see what they can do with a stage, some serious engineering, hydraulics, and a cast of amazing performers.

We are in Vegas for a short vacation with friends. Saw KA on Feb 8. Where to begin...

First, a family friendly show where you needn't worry about kids seeing something inappropriate.

The performance was incredible. True athletes performing multiple breathtaking routines, and each performed flawlessly. Several were truly death defying and we found ourselves holding our breath several times.

The sets were well designed and changed seamlessly. No CGI involved in this show. Real people performing real stunts and actions.

Worth every penny.

It was not an option but I personally give it 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed the music and the stunts/athleticism was quite impressive however, the story Line is hard to follow. 2 out of 4 family members did not follow the story line and that is the reason I would rate 3.5.

This cirque du Soleil was the 3rd we saw on a recent trip to Las Vegas and it was jaw dropping. The stage could have a show of its own it was so AMAZING. The set and the cast was simply flawless. The show is a must see.

We will definitely be going a second time.

This is the worst Cirque du Soleil Show I've ever seen. It's nothing compared to their other shows.
I feel like it's a bunch of fake accounts that left them a 5-star review here.
My husband and I were choosing between going to the KA show and the Absinthe. We read the reviews online about the KA and decided to take a chance. I wish I had seen the 1-star reviews earlier. I feel like we were ripped off by paying almost $200 per ticket. The KA show was the most boring thing I've ever seen. For the first 30 minutes there was nothing interesting going on on the stage. I was falling asleep, to be honest. I wish I could get my money back!

It was good. The set was amazing. It was an immersive type experience with the performers coming into the audience and speakers in every seat. It is only getting 4 stars and not 5 because there were parts that were a little slow. I've seen some people complain about not being about to understand what they are saying. You aren't supposed to. They are speaking in made up tribal languages and you are supposed to interpret through the performers. Lots of martial arts so my son loves it Overall it was a good show.
