“spectacular depiction of Hawiian history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

We purchased the VIP package to Ulalena which included free parking, show admission with VIP seating, meet the cast after the performance, and dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The show was a combination of musical, puppetry, and Circe de Soliel type acts. The performers were beautiful young men and women who were filled with energy and enthusiasm. Choreography was phenomenal, and the use of puppetry was amazing. The standing ovation at the end was well earned. I would gladly go see this show again. Besides learning some of the mythology of Hawaii, it also served as a fascinating history lesson. This is the best thing I have done in Maui!

“Beautiful Modern Interpretation of Hawaiian Legends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

We debated going thinking from the posters and brochures it was a Hawaiian Cirque de Sole. We were very glad we went. Instead Ulalena turned out to be a really beautiful modern dance interpretation of Hawaiian legends and myths. The music, singing and dance made an extremely rich and powerful tapestry.

“Hawaiian History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013

This was a very unique experience. This stage performance told the history & culture of beautiful Hawaii through the performers & the excellent musicians who really brought the story to life. They also used lighting & different effects. There was one performer who uses long strips of draping to tell part of the story. I was told by a friend who has been to this show many times that this technique is not one you see all the time & is not taught to many. The performers involve the audience as well. After the performance, some of the cast members come to the lobby so the audience can talk & have their photos taken with them. Very popular so be sure to make your reservations early so you don't miss out.
