My husband almost fell over laughing when the pandas came out because I apparently had a look on my face that showed my amazement and disbelief at how bad they looked. I'll probably never understand why they chose to make the pandas people in giant furry panda costumes. I could not follow the rationale and when the pandas climbed and did acrobatics on a pole (including one that hung by its neck) my husband commented on the nightmares he was going to have about pandas now. It was the silliest thing I had ever seen and the show didn't improve much from there. I did, however, have to acknowledge how difficult it would be to do acrobatics in that silly costume.
There were 2 highlights during the show for me. The peacocks were very good (there were 3 of them) - their strength, flexibility, and balance was impressive especially when one of them balanced en pointe on the panda's arm. I had to gasp with that one.
The other highlight was the little shaolin boy who is very very talented for being such a little guy. He stole the show with his big acrobatic part. I especially was impressed with the front hand spring he did but instead of using his hands, he used his head! Too bad that when he had his 2nd big moment, he did the exact same thing again.
Most of the acrobatic acts had mistakes - dropped items and missteps.
Aside from a few shining moments, the production was pretty disappointing and certainly not worth the $180 price tag per person for the VIP seats. I would not recommend it but that's just my opinion based on having seen all of the Cirque shows in LV. If you went by the Vietnamese ladies sitting behind us "ooooing" and "aaaahing" at every single thing, you would think everyone was incredibly impressed by it. Not the case for us.
