I brought my mother to this show, having high expectations after seeing a previous show that was excellent. This show was quite disappointing. Most of the show seemed to be disrupted by the clown/ring masters acts, which took up a large portion of time and did not contribute to the story-line. The clown act was not entertaining and lacked even simple draw into the stunts. I would not recommend this show to anyone.

I have seen over 5 Cirque Du Soleil shows and this one was the worst. I truly felt as though I was watching a troupe in training. The first half of the show was little more than the "clowns" running around and costumed performers sliding around on the floor. The second half was OK but too heavy on the aerial flights and was lacking in the WOW factor. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS SHOW TO ANYONE. IT was a waste of my money and a poor showing of what CDS can truly be.

I thoroughly enjoyed this amazing show! It helped to read about the concept and production before hand, gave it a better understanding of the characters and story. If you like the "nomadic spirit" and artistic concepts, this is another success for CDS!

Very disappointing, I've seen at least 5 other shows and they're amazing,this one in particular didn't felt complete,i also got lost in the story and wasn't as amazing as other acts from them. wouldn't recommend it.

Just saw Varekai last night! Awesome Show! Very Different from other three I have seen, and each one took me to a whimsical, fantastical world. We had center-stage 2nd row seats, and while you do have to look through front row heads at times to see the action, to be that close, made you more a part of it so was worth it!. Such talented performers. The costuming, music and make up , incredible! I thoroughly enjoyed this show. Now One of my favorites. Thank you Cirque du Soleil!

Extremely disappointed! We purchased expensive tickets in hopes of seeing the show and experiencing it to the fullest, but spent the entire show peering through the 2 rows in front of us and trying to see the stage, which was below eye level. The show was boring and as a first time CDS visitor, I have no intentions of seeing another show. $285 in tickets and a waste of an afternoon. Seating should have indicated it wasn't stadium style on the floor "letter" seating areas.

The Varekai show was very disappointing for me and most of my family members. especially given the cost per ticket two stars may even be generous. The vaudeville-ish type acts in between was not good, even poor. It is doubtful we will attend any future Cirque Du Soleil shows.

Have seen several Cirque shows. This was by far the most boring one . Would not recommend this to anyone . Basically felt it was a waste of time and money. Last act was best.

We have seen Cirque de Solei in Vegas and this show was poor. The first part of the show was boring and we almost left at halftime. The second part was better. You expect acrobatics and the first half was silly, boring and did not make any sense with people crawling all over the floor. It ended up to be a $200.00 evening that left a lot to be desired.
