Disappointing! Multiple acts were missing, the show cut short by at least 25min and the second "half" was a joke. I flew interstate to see this show for a family member's birthday and was bitterly disappointed. Cirque du Soleil's response to my contact was inadequate and unsatisfactory. I can not recommend this show. There is no way of knowing what you're going to see and the company is not going to tell you.

To all the people complaining about parking, the venue the weather (which may cause the cutting of ariel acts eg Still Trapeze) and alike please stop wasting your time. These factors are EXTERNAL from Cirque and they have little control over it. And for the man complaining about the grand chapiteau being a tent not a theatre, then don't come! It is widely known that this is the tradition of circus and if you think the seats are too small... LOSE SOME WEIGHT!! I am 165cm and 68Kg and it was fine.

Upon reading all the negative reviews I am shocked to see how anyone could have had such a bad experience! I went to the show in Sydney (28/11/14 & again -because it was THAT amazing- on the 31/12/14). I must confess though, we did have the best seats in the house, all acts were performed flawlessly & then a backstage tour made the night perfect! The only thing I disliked was the extremely pricey tickets ($500x3 & $175x3) however I still recommend TOTEM! My favourite of all 10 CDS shows ive seen

Saw the show last night (Thurs 5th March) and was very disappointed with the second 'half'. Have been to other shows in the past and can say the ommited sections were sorely missed. No announcement for us or explaination as to why certain acrobatic performances were skipped.

I saw two shows before but I am disappointed with this because they cut three parts of the show . We pay for the all show and I couldn't see three parts . I went on Saturday 28/02/2015 in Melbourne .

As a group of 7 we also attended and was bitterly disappointed with the evening show on Saturday 28th Feb.The acrobatics, foot juggling, the rings and the roller skating were omitted from the show are, i believe, what makes Cirque so unique and spectacular.

We also went to see the show on the on the 28th of February and were very disappointed with the second half. After speaking to friends who have seen the show I know that we missed at least two acts- the couple doing the trapeze and the roller skating act. The trapeze was described by friends to be one of the highlights of the entire show. Without these acts I felt that the second half of the show lacked excitement and was a bit of a let down.

We went to Totem in Melbourne on Saturday 28th February, the staging and acts we saw were amazing but we were very disappointed with the second "half" of the show. Yes there was a big storm that hit Melbourne on the night but the majority of the crowd were unaware of this. We can understand that for safety reasons any "high-flying" acts were not performed but there were two other acts that could have gone ahead safely, there was no explanation just a sudden end to the show :(

I took my 7 year old granddaughter to the show for her birthday treat and was a little taken aback at how much the tickets cost. But every penny spent was worthwhile! What a truly wonderful show and what a magical experience for us both. She just loves Cirque due Soleil when she sees it on television so this really was a wonderful close-up view of your marvellous team at work. We both just loved the men on the moon routine. Thank you so much for a fabulous evening out!
