I will compare this with abstract art. I can't wait to return and hopefully see a revised storyline. The performers where awesome but can be directed to tell a story not just a aerobic work out. I will highly recommend.

Great costumes and dance in this Vegas wanna be. Impossible to follow plot even with the guidebook given in advance (since you can't follow along in the dark once the show starts). I guess if you already know Hawaii history it makes sense, but not much in English to explain it. Don't buy the tickets for $50-80 at your hotel... More

Great costumes, fantastic music, easy to follow history of Hawaii performed by folks who put their hearts and souls into it. Worth the price by a country mile. Go see Ulalena.

This is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the beautiful Hawaiian culture, the people and connection to the land, as well as gain a feel for the history - from the beginning of time through today, told through dance, story and legends. There were very moving moments and throughout, the performances were very impressive. The dancers were engaging and... More

I didn't know what to expect but my wife and I really enjoyed this show. It is an evocative journey through the history of the Hawaiian people told through modern dance, chants and music. The dancers were wonderful, and many of the scenes were moving. Brilliant production, I highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to learn more about Hawaiian... More

I didn't get this at all. Not sure if it was just me or if everyone felt the same way. Definitely isn't worth 79 dollars a ticket.

Very entertaining and a nice break from the Sun or on a rainy day. Actors are authentic and the story is perfect for this Island.
