My husband bought tickets for this show as a Christmas present. We visited yesterday Saturday 15 Feb. We have seen 3 other cirque de soleil shows, 2 in Florida and 1 in Vegas. I was a little nervous after reading some of the press and trip advisor reviews but didn't want to say anything or have a preconceived idea but all didn't go to plan.
The first half was probably better than I expected. I didn't understand the story but there were enough outstanding performances to be thoroughly enjoyable. If the second half had been the same I would have said don't hesitate to see this show but unfortunately not long after the characters came on after the interval it was announced that the show was being temporarily stopped. No explanation. We all thought it was part of the show at first but it soon became apparent something was obviously wrong. It appeared to be with the lighting. If someone had come out and explained it would have gone a long way toward easing the audiences frustration but quite a lot of people left and after 45 minutes the show restarted for about 20 minutes and had undoubtedly been cut short. What a let down. Our tickets were nearly £100 each and I think we were treated appallingly.
