Not what we expected. Thought we would learn more about the northern lights, similar to the narration at the beginning of the show. We were expecting some scientific and/or background info not the slideshow with music. Clearly a work from the heart however not worth the entrance fee of $16. The photos in the lobby were more impressive than the aurora photos in the presentation. Liked however the music! If this has been running since 2019 with these types of reviews one might consider another presentation or one that incorporates the feedback for a better presentation.

I feel bad writing a poor review because everyone there was so nice, but this is just one step better than your uncle showing you a slide show from his cool trip. Way overpriced. Check out the exhibit at the Federal Building across the street.

WhiIe waiting for the performance to begin, we had a wonderful view of the stage, and enjoyed looking around at the theater. When the performance started it was very very loud. Searching in my purse I found a pair of ear plugs, which I shared with my daughter. I sat with my finger in my other ear, which was quite uncomfortable, and dearly wished to escape. The balcony edge was in front of me, and the seats on each side were full, so there was no escape. We later joked to each other that we had even thought of climbing over the back of the chair to get out. I wrote a letter to the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, but never recieved a reply. I am surprized that the environmental protection agency hasn't fined them for blasting loud noises at people at pain threshold levels! What a waste of almost a hundred dollars, with no possibility of a refund. We were not the only ones who left the theater at the first intermission.

What a waste of money and time ! I wanted to learn something about the Norther Lights, not watch a bunch of pictures of it with background music! We were so bored we left not too long after it started. So many more things to do in Anchorage !

Save your money & time,- skip this. The shots are beautiful but for me it would've been so much better with more narration inc how the phenomena was viewed by native people & folklore around this. It's very overpriced for what it is.

The performing art center is beautiful, very organize and super professionals.
This show was about the chines dance history, the music of orchestra was pure perfection. We enjoy the two hours that the show lasted.

So beautiful and educational. Never dawned on me that many parts of of the world are to far away to see the Northern Lights.

We saw the excellent Aurora show on the beautiful Northern Lights. This show is worth every penny and every second. This is a must see for everyone. Excellently produced, edited, and directed.
