MUH

OK... some good bits. The "Clown" just was not funny and way too long. Overall I thought the show was just about OK but considering we paid around 600 dollars for the night when you add everything up, it was way too expensive for a very mediocre show. I last say CDS in London a few years ago and it was way better and more exciting than this rather dull show.

NOT AS GREAT AS IN PAST YEARS

I was entertained and had a few wow moments but in all me and my party agreed ... It wasn’t as good as past years. It was well under the level of the cirque du soleil reputation. I’ve been the last 5 times to sf showes and by far the worst. It had a hand full of so so showes. Usually more jaw dropping performances

DISAPPOINTING PROGRAM

My 5th time and my last attending Cirque. The show was way below expectation. I took my family and was expecting them to be awed, as I was, by previous shows. When a show leaves out several acts, gives no explanation, and the second act,20 minutes, just ends no one seemed satisfied. Is that all there is seemed a common reaction from the audience members as we left the tent. Some great acts as always but not enough to make up for the overall lack substance.

THE HEADLINING ACTS WERE MISSING

We decided to splurge and take our sons to see Volta. In particular they were exciting to see the vaunted and much-advertised grand finale which featuring BMX bikers riding ramps onstage. So we went and watched the very short show (less then two hours total), and then the lights came on, ending the show. No grand finale. Looking back, we realized that a number of the other acts that were advertised (i.e. Danila Bim doing hair acrobatics) also did not perform. So we left with two disappointed kids claiming (rightfully) that the show was a rip-off. Subsequently we read that one of the BMX riders was injured awhile back, so maybe that's why the act was canceled? But not informing the audience that its star performance is canceled is grossly irresponsible. And what of the other well-publicized but missing acts? I gave two stars because there still were some stunning performances. But overall, our very expensive outing was soured.

UHHHH.....

Man! What a let down. We've seen at least 5 exciting and spare no thrills Cirque Du Soleil shows. This one....dull, anti-climatic. As mentioned, we could see bikers on You-tube, go to a high school football game to see batons twirling...but to pay a hefty price for what they presented, disappointing. Many it was a good think it was a short program, I was yawning.
