Not like any show you have seen in the Hawaiian Islands, U' lalena tells of the struggles and achievements of a South Pacific melting pot of cultures. It tells of peoples coming together to form a beautiful island way of life,thus,Hawaii was created, becoming the center of the Pacific . From fire and water, the Hawaiian Islands were born. Enjoy...

I liked the music and some of the dancing, but I was bored. I hate to rate this show low because of MY lack of sophistication, but I was still bored. I like loud rock and roll. I salt my food and eat lactose and gluten; would never go to an opera or ballet and most classical music puts me... More

I attended the show on the recommendation of a co-worker who knew I was traveling to Maui. I enjoyed the performance and learning more about the creation stories and history of the Islands. The costumes were creative and colorful and easy on the eyes. I was especially impressed with the live band's percussion section -- they created an amazing "thunderstorm"... More

We purchased our tickets through a travelzoo deal. The show starts at 430pm so it kind of stinks that is is still light outside. The show was good but I'd enjoy it more if it was after sunset. They do sell snacks and popcorn. I would have probably been more disappointed if I paid full price. If you enjoy shows... More

Awful. Not worth any money! Not even for free. Impossible to understand if there even is a story. Not talented at all and frankly felt like it was a bad high school show.

What an awesome way to tell the history of Hawaii. The show is so inspirational and well played. Make you see the history from the real Hawaiians point of view. I had goosebumps just hearing the music and the singer had such a wonderful voice.

Went to this show that was recommended by our Expedia concierge. I enjoyed it very much, my husband not as much. We were told ahead of time to read the program so we would know what is going on (it is all very interpretive), but they were out of programs(!) so we couldn't. It would have been nice to have...

This is the 4th time I've seen this production. It has become a family tradition that we never get tired of seeing. Beautiful dancers, singers, props, aerial and fantastic instrumentals!!!

Something different if you want a change from a Luau. The performers were brilliant, it was just a little difficult to follow as my knowledge of Hawaiian history isn't great. Some beautiful voices and great production, just could use a bit more detail in the program or between scenes.
