We loved seeing Volta last Saturday afternoon. It was
our first Cirque du Soleil show. The were amazing!
The cast performed with athleticism, grace, and
percision. Because the venue is small and built
around the circular stage, the view was up close and
personal. We are hooked and cannot wait to see
them again. A class act from setup to performance.
Bravo! Topped off the night with dinner at Season's
52 in KoP.

WHAT AN AWESOME PERFORMANCE.
This was my first time seeing Cirque Du Soleil. I could not have chosen a better
performance than Volta. The energy of the performers, the lover of their trade shines
through with every move on stage. The girl on the roller skates an added treat. I can't
wait for you to come to Chicago. I am now a HUGE fan.

The show was fantastic with so much talent and imagination packed
into one show. Would highly recommend it if you like high energy

IT WAS OK
Was unimpressed with the beginning and some of the performances. I think I was more irritated because I was sitting on the floor (no incline) almost below the stage and could barely see well. I also had someone kicking through the opening of my chair for the first half of the show. The costumes were just ok. I've been to many shows and this was my least favorite only because of the beginning and my frustration with the seats and view. Will say that I did love the acrobats and their energy-they made the show. I loved the main character and his solo scene too..was great. The bikers scene was cool. Loved the solo woman hanging from her hair. The double dutch scene was ok as well as the ladder scene and the guy with the laundry scene was just ok. The bungee scene was just ok too. I just expected a little more for what we pay. The bike and ballerina scene was nice...felt like it was missing something though. Hated my seats. Recommend sitting higher up. Don't sit low to stage

PERSONALLY CONFLICTED ABOUT HOW TO RATE VOLTA:
Went with my boyfriend, we've seen other Cirque shows & this was by far our least-favorite.
Good for kids, if you've never seen another Cirque or if you've never done gymnastics.
eye catching costumes
acts were clean & precise, I appreciate the practice they put in.
i really enjoyed the woman who starts off in lotus position as her act was both beautiful & unique (you'll know who I mean, if you see the show) as well as maybe 2 others.
Negatives: too many to list all:
1st act was double dutch in costume. Found the moves less difficult then kids I've seen on the sidewalk [excepting only 2 moves].
Tricks you can see many talented/active kids do, such as basic bike tricks.
The 2 women on bungees doing flips I myself have done; even my boyfriend who's never bungee'd was unimpressed, it felt like a time filler.
A lot of it felt like time filler.
Story line not solidly resolved.
Many blasé acts: [such as spinning from a ladder(!?) and that's it]
Final rating: disappointing

AN AMAZING SHOW
Thank you to all the artists for such a amazing
performance. It was 2 hour show, my 7y.o and
3 y.o had so much fun. Our family had great
time. Seats are comfortable. I highly
Thank you again.

THE MAGIC IS GONE
Cirques magic used to begin the moment you set inside the tent. Members of
the cast walking around the aisles, clowns working the crowd and performing
on the stage, elaborate and beautiful staging with surprises around each
corner, objects appearing and disappearing. It was decadent and fantastical
and felt like no expense had been spared to create a world of illusion,
enchantment, and excitement. Times have changed. Why? We did some
research...the majority founder of the company sold most of his shares to an
investment firm in 2017. It explains why this feels like a paired down version of
what used to be Cirquel. A few terrific acrobatic displays including jumping
through stacked rings and a thrilling trampoline act, and a wonderful solo
clown act, doesn't make up for boring baton twirling, a BMX display you could
see on YouTube, and multiple acts with people swinging in the air on various
apparatus. The cast always playing their parts with vigor and joy, can't make up
