“Sensational!!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Would highly recommend this show! Absolutely specatcular! Great artistics....high in the air above you, everywhere on stage....sometimes you don't know where to look first. Sensational show. Try to get seats in the middle but more in the back. Front row is not the best row for the action above your heads in the middle of the room. So try to sit a bit behind the middle. Don't be worried to be further in the back. Your necks will be gratful ;-)

Knowing we would be in Las Vegas later we directly booked "O"....and that was kind of disappointing. Compared almost no artistics. Of course still good. Some nice effects. Great stage! Kind of unique. But compared to "Iris" the wow factor was missing....a lot. So get yourself to "Iris" you won't be disappointed!

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Simply entertaining. Have seen the show twice and bought tickets for friends visiting town. I am not sure how this would compare to other Cirque shows as it's been a while since we saw one in the round. Ticket prices are fairly expensive, but certainly a really enjoyable experience

“Brilliant production”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We got good tickets on the day and only paid $73 per ticket. We haven't seen any other Cirque productions but thought this was brilliant, so well produced, choreographed and great fun. Imagine directing/producing a cast that large! great value and one of the best experiences of our trip

“Not the top of my Cirque list but close...”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is our 11th Cirque show...we enjoyed Iris. The costumes and set were amazing...as usual. My husband loved it more than the rest because the music was mostly in English - LOL.

I liked being able to walk through the Kodak Theater. It's pretty amazing.

Sorry it's closing. I would've seen it again. :)

“Christmas gift from the kids”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great show that my wife and I enjoyed. Lots of flexibility and strength in these performers. The kids got us balcony seats and front row where you could view the whole stage.
