Totem in Adelaide was very disappointing! Compared to the Michael Jackson tribute & Cirque Noir, last night’s effort was little better than a school pantomime with inappropriate humor thrown in. I assume all the good acts from Soleil have defected to Noir! The only acts that prevented me from walking out demanding my money back were the Mono-cyclists and the ladies whirling tablecloths. Refreshments also disappointing with exorbitantly priced alcohol & chips and popcorn! Very poor show Soleil!

The show was absolutely amazing. I especially loved the ladies on the incredibly tall unicycles. Also the performances based around the huge Carapace were incredible too. There was great music throughout that really set the mood for the different acts. I'd highly recommend it!

The only thing breathtaking at the end of the night was how disappointed I was.
Saw it Friday night and walked away shocked as I've heard nothing but rave reviews for all the other shows. 3 days later, I'm still a bit cut!
Way too padded out with the monkeys and scientist, the "Valentino" character their weird musical segments...so disjointed and I honestly felt like I was watching a children's pantomime. Made me feel patronised and downright foolish for spending my time and money :(

Very disappointing and nowhere near the level of entertainment of previous shows.I was waiting for the spectacular act but instead wasted time with funny acts . Missing acts and as a result a disjointed story. Limited performers with limited appeal.I will certainly rethink before purchasing tickets for future shows

I would like to review the performance for 21st May but at 3:00pm the day of the performance I was called and advised that the VIP experience was not being offered that night. Having traveled from interstate for this performance and to be called 4 hours before the performance to me is unacceptable. I was offered alternate seats (not in the VIP area) but the experience would not have been as good based on other performances I have seen. I will be thinking twice before booking again.

As usual fantastic costuming and great set but if it had been my first show it would have been the last.I purchased seats at the side of stage section 203 and was disappointed that the set and performance were designed to be viewed from the front. If you are performing in the round please design the set and perform to all of your audience.I feel cheated.Your good reviews must have been from people seated front of stage.Most acts viewed 'side on' looked unimpressive and we missed the visuals.

Very disappointing and nowhere near the level of entertainment expected. To compare Totem with OVO is akin to comparing the London Symphony Orchestra in full recital versus a garage band with a disjointed and cut down set of cover songs. Missing acts and as a result a disjointed story. Limited performers with limited appeal.I will certainly rethink before purchasing tickets for future shows.

Very dissapointing Brisbane show, worst expensive seats ever could only see small amounts of stage and the band. The show was very confusing and disjointed and missing acts. I was expecting evolution not Canada's got talent. Our first and last cirque show!

I can understand some peoples disappointment to the missing acts however, when you do buy the ticket it clearly states in the terms and conditions that cirque can remove any performer without informing the audience, Therefore I do not feel that you should be complaining about this as it is very clearly stated.
I absolutely loved the show and thought the acts were brilliant! It may not have been my favourite cirque show however I still loved every moment of the show.

We have seen some of the other Cirque Du Soleil shows before and this was definitely not the best one, but the attention to detail in sets, costume sounds, visuals, lighting and make-up still made it a great show!
The storyline is very disjointed but the acts are exceptionally talented. I always wait until after the show to read the program (so I don't spoil the surprise of each act) but needed it this time to explain the concept.
