I really enjoyed the performance - it offers a glimpse into Maui's history and mythology, with drama and dance, Hawaiian song and chant. Not sure I would compare it to Cirque de Soleil as some others say, at least not the show I saw five years ago. 'Ulalena was very well done.

Ours was a special matinee performance for Maui students - what a field trip!

“Great show”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

I was lucky enough to win a ticket to Ulalena at our hotels orientation morning so we only had to buy 1 ticket. We were seated in the very back row in standard seating but the theater is not large, i actually thought our seats were fantastic. We got a great overall view of the show.
The performance was excellent. The sets and costumes were beautiful and the ribbon and hoop sections were a real highlight.

“Nice theatrical introduction to the history of Hawaii”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

This show was an interesting look into the history of Hawaii, using music, song and dance. If it were purely a native representation of history, it would be much more truthful, wherein the people of European origin would be depicted as being the murderers and thieves that they really were, destroying the Native's entire world, just like they did everywhere on Planet Earth. But........ since this is really tainted by European influence, it is hugely watered down, and ohh sooo polite..... love the part about Captain Cook....... Ha! Ha! Ha! Maybe we should change his name to Captain Crook??? Why is it sooooo hard for all of us to admit that the people of European descent were by far the worst murderers and thieves and terrorists our Planet has ever seen???

“Amazing Show! A must see!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

I am not a huge show person, but I thoroughly enjoyed this performance. The VIP seating is recommended for the after show experience as well. For the slight extra, I really think it is worth meeting the cast and getting an in depth explanation of the show.
