Disappointed to say the least! The acts had no sequence, it was just a merry go round of unfunny clowns, jugglers and acrobats. Boring! the only part I liked was the performance of Je Ne Quitte Pas, because I love Edith Piaf. I will think twice before buying tickets for another show. Will not recommend!

Possibly one of the worst Cirque shows I have seen. Maybe I am spoiled since I have been to some AMAZING shows (Totem, Quidam, Saltimbanco, Corteo to name a few) but nothing impressed me. They spent too much time in between acts trying to be "funny" and not enough time during the actual performances. During Cirque shows, I am usually on the edge of my seat, wide-eyed and awed. I found myself yawning during Varekai on more than one occasion. Truly disappointed.

Though we enjoyed the show, we were disappointed in the lack of acrobatic thrills we usually see. They did not even do the Russian Swing act but we could see performers swinging back and forth on the swing behind the poles. We have been to many Cirque shows and this by far was the least interesting. We spent alot of money to go to this show and will have to think twice before we book tickets for another show.

Extremely disappointed in Varekai. We have seen many of Cirque's shows and this most definitely did not have the magic to which we have been accustomed. It did not rise to the excellence that we have seen in the past. After reading a lot of reviews for Varekai we wonder if these folks saw the same show that we did.

Cirque never fails to amaze me, and Varekai was no different. I do wish there had been more aerial acts, but everything that was there was breathtaking. I do wish there were a small program given out though, because the show makes more sense after seeing the plot. Regardless, it was wonderful! And I'm so glad it came to Erie, PA; please return!

Though I enjoyed the show immensely, I was disappointed, especially for it being and anniversary year show. I just expected it to be more. Not enough acrobatics - one or two stunts then pose for applause. Many of the acrobatics were the same old ones done in every show. Is this a fair assessment? I can only compare it to Quidam and what other videos I have seen. Will have to think twice for next time.

Amazing!! Didn't want it to end! Not a single boring act; just pure perfection! Also, so happy that cirque finally came to Cleveland; please come every year!

Love love LOVE! This was my 12th Cirque du Soleil show, and went with my friend for his birthday and was his 1st. It was stunningly done. The clowns were grand, and the finale was truly something to behold, not to mention the gorgeous multi-colored dance/acrobatics routine that Icarus observes. Certainly not the most technically advanced Cirque show, but definitely one of the more beautiful and stimulating shows costume-wise and musically. Great for veteran viewers and Cirque du Soleil virgins!

This was my first Cirque Du Soleil experience live; it was fantastic! Saw the performance on Saturday evening, 7/26/14 in Indianapolis as a date with my girlfriend. The music and singing was beautiful, the costumes and sets wonderfully colorful and magical, and the performances, of course, were amazing! If I had to choose, my favorite act was the Icarian games, although I loved all of them. The Betrothed performer was incredible, as well. Thank you, cast & crew, for an unforgettable memory!
