The show was great. I didn't get any of the negatives that other reviewers did. I've seen many Cirque shows and this one was very good. The VIP experience however was less than impressive. It use to be a true VIP EXPERIENCE now its is...More

I completely agree with another Reviewer that wrote: The show was very top heavy on gymnastics you could see at your local gym. This was my 4th Cirque de Soleil show. I've seen Varekai, Ka, Kurios, and now Amaluna. I spent the entire 2 hours...More

What has become of Cirq? Since the Volta accident, the danger factor has been dramatically lowered. The few worthwhile acts were spot on but the show broke character multiple times to showcase two dumb clowns. The music was crazy. While they were no worthy songs...More

The show was so disappointing... Unbelievable.. After everything I have heard about Cirque Du Soleil, I expected a great show and it was so regular. Nothing exciting or special.. A small tent and average acts.

Not really sure what to expect as my impression of circus's as a child was not great. However this show was really good at The Royal Albert Hall. A good mix of skill and slapstick made for an evening of entertainment which is what it...More

The show is a big disappointment! We went to see the Volta show yesterday in Toronto. We go to Cirque Du Soleil every show in Toronto. The story line, that is usually De-Soleil the biggest point, was not seen at all. Dramatization team has done...More

I bought the most expensive non-VIP tickets available last year. 8 of us were in Row 3. They were over $200 a piece. This is why why I would not go again. About a third of the people in the two front rows were taping...More

I have seen Amaluna in Rome few days ago. The show itself is impressive thanks to scenography and the live music. The artists are all top level and their performances are simply outstanding. Very recommended show.

I have been to previous shows by Cirque du Soleil and I loved them (Alegria in particular), so I had high expectations for Amaluna. Unfortunately, the quality is low in comparison to other shows; although some parts of the show are impressive, the alleged comic...More

ROYAL ALBERT HALL While the venue was excellent and the performances were competent, the production itself was bland at best. Storyline: Boy meets girl; evil tries to separate them; good prevails; they unite. The story is a very lazy and childish base for this production....More

The best vantage point with most theatrical shows in from the front. I would imagine that principle applies here, too. That said, we were seated towards the side - seats a little less pricey, but didn't feel we missed out... More

It's the most spectacular and best circus around with a yearly new show/storyline.
