What the media say about the show

"Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion, a fusion of Eastern and Western culture, treats audiences to mesmerizing feats of acrobatics, impressive juggling, fun clowns and captivating music."
Colorado Springs Gazette, February 17, 2012
“[…]the entire show was an “over the top” performance.”
Macaroni Kid Pittsford, May 21, 2012
“[…] it offers up elaborately and imaginatively designed costumes to embellish amazingly fit and limber circus artists as they perform feats of flexibility, balance, strength and dance.”
Scott C. Morgan , The Daily Herald, June 22, 2012

Esta semana vi el espectáculo en Las Palmas y espera mas, de las dos y media que dura solo sorprendia 30 minutos de la actuación , hubo actuaciones muy aburras y sin valor añadido. La puesta en escena era genial pero el contenido astante flojo. Solo destacaría la actuación de los dralions, las camas elasticas y la ultima donde saltaban a la comba. Suprimia la actuación de los payasos. La frase que se repetia era al final demasiado caro para lo poco que ofrecia.

Acabo de ver Dralion en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Fue mi gran ilusión ver por primera vez una producción del Cirque du Soleil en vivo y quedé desilusionado. Salvo con tres estrellas a los artistas; la iluminación - unos focos mal puestos que impedían ver al jongleur - una música reiterativa sin historia ¿dónde estaba la historia entre Dra y lion? Poco ambiente alrededor, y unos payasos que son del agrado del público pero que no justifican la fama del Cirque du Soleil. Una gran decepción.

Dralion may have been amazing ten years ago, but personally, I found the new arena version of the show downright boring. All of the best acts have been taken out - the teeterboard, the ballet on lightbulbs, and perhaps most noteably the fantastic double trapeze - but yet strangely some of the poorest acts - the juggling, the hoop diving and the bamboo poles - have stayed. Dralion doesn't even compare to Alegria, Saltimbanco or Quidam, and I'm quite confused to how it's still even running.

Ha sido mucho más de lo que me esperaba, una verdadera maravilla para los sentidos. La música, las voces, los acróbatas, las danzarinas, todo en su conjunto ha sido la perfección, si una actuación era buena, la siguiente la superaba. Animo a todos a ir a verlo. Ketty - Donostia - 4/07/2014

I went to see this show on Sunday 15th June in Manchester and although the show was rather good it wasn't as spectacular as some of the other shows I have seen. I was most disappointed when the show finished 15mins earlier than advertised! The show didn't include 2 acts - the handbalancing act or the Medusa act.

It was a fantastic show. My first time I have been to a love show and it blew me away. The acts were not a high risk as some of the other shows but it was wonderful!! I will definitely be going to see another show.

I went to see Drallion with my friend on Saturday 7 June at the 02 in London. We were both very disappointed, the lighting was bad, and they made a lot of mistakes i.e. Jugglers dropping balls, skipping rope going over and performers not ready etc. In saying that we have both seen other Cirque shows and were amazed by them.

Distinctly average circus acts. I was led to believe that Cirque du Soleil is the best Circus on the planet. Over £200 for about 8 different types of acrobatics/circus acts. There was no comprehend-able story telling. There were mistakes - Mistakes happen, but not this many, and not in the worlds best circus. There was no 'wow' acts, all were just ok to mildy impressive. Second half of the act must have been the dregs of the performers. Maybe the company should stop spreading themselves so thin

Ignore the haters! AMAZING! Beautiful production, which cannot be described in words! I was speechless for the entire show, from the lighting, costumes, artists, vocalists and band I could not fault any of it! Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend to anyone! Not to be missed in this lifetime!
