Breathtaking acrobatics. A very entertaining show. Tickets were quite expensive but it was well worth it.

When booking tickets for the show I was initially a bit concerned about the price, they are expensive BUT having seen the show they are are definitely worth the money.

The 360 degree theater itself is very impressive and from the moment the show begins you are kept at the edge of your seat by the skill and daring of the stunts. The performers are extremely talented and anyone who says that the stunts "aren't that difficult" are belittling the hard-work of the performers. I certainly wouldn't jump, leap, twist and dive from 30+ft into a narrow pool of water!

The storyline is perhaps a little contrived and sometimes vague but it serves the purpose of facilitating the amazing acrobatics. The set design is brilliant and the way it moves and changes is quite incredible.

That was one of the best shows I have ever seen. It is recommended for everyone visiting Macau to attend this show. The setup and the production are amazing.
The show is located very close to the entrance of grand Hyatt Macau main lobby and starts at 5 pm or 8pm
The sound is sometimes a bit high for the small children.
Please take care that the ticket price includes one free photo and that photo must be taken before you enter the show, and will be received immediately after the show.

If you've never seen a Cirque du Soleil show, you'll probably love this. Otherwise...

The truly good about it is the pool itself, how it modulates size and depth. Very impressive.
Artistically it's just ok. No real story. Music arrangement is also just ok, definitely not memorable.

The truly awful is how, after an hour of artistic performance, out of the blue, they close the pool, install ramps and let guys do stunts on motorbikes, in a mix of awful engine noise and petrol smell. And then start the real performance again.
This was absolutely unfathomable to us. How they suddenly skip from rather skillfull acrobatics or dance to stunts.

Even more unfathomable was the fact that the audience finally clapped and woke up for those stunts.

Definitely not worth the money!

The overall performance was stellar, the choreography amazing, the athleticism was beyond any I've seen even from Cirque du Soleil. However, the reasoning of the story was lacking. Also I didn't think the motorcycle sequence had anything to do with the show in its entirety. You can sit anywhere in the arena and see the entire production. Dress for this event is very casual.
