“IRIS”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

A great show, I am a big Cirque fan and have been to more than 8 that I can think of. This was not my favorite but it was worth the price of the ticket.

Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have seen some Cirque du Soleil show such as "O", Ka, Alegria, Quidam and Varekai. Iris was the best of all. Highly recommend.

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

It was like watching a motion picture on stage. The effects and the artistry was amazing, and our eyes were glued to the stage. Also, the cirque du soleil interaction with the audience was very enjoyable!

“Excellent as all Cirque shows are”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

My 12 year old is still raving about his show as it was her first Cirque du Soleil show. I thought it was very well done, although I saw 'O' in Las Vegas in February and that is unbelievable and a hard one to beat! All credit to he performers and organizers in making this a wonderful experience!
