FANTASTIC!

By far, and away the most fantastic show I have seen, in recent years. I don't know who the lady singing was, but she was fabulous. The entire show was excellent. She made it, for me, unforgettable. People of all ages were in the audience the night we saw the performance. From youngest, to oldest, everybody seemed to enjoy it as much as we did.

WAS THIS A PRACTICE SHOW?

The usually polished performance Inhave come to expect from Cirque du Soleil was missing from the performance I saw last night. Several performers fell during their acts and the story line didn't make any sense but not in the usual cirque dream like way. Many of the performances were amazing as should be expected but some of them felt like an audition for America'd Got Talent. It also would have been nice if security had stopped the audience from recording the whole thing on their cell phones.

DISAPPOINTING

I felt as if I was at my kids junior high play! Acting was very lame and cheesy! Music was not live as it usually is at a cirque show, except for one violinist (the only good part of this show). I usually LOVE any show put out by Cirque. Do NOT waste your money on this one!!!

DISAPPOINTING- PRERECORDED MUSIC, DUMB STORY, ANNOYING ACTING.

12/23/23 Expected a sophisticated cirque performance w/ fantasy, live music, high production value. Sat night, Winspear Opera house, holiday season should be top quality performance. No- annoying, overwrought, kids show quality acting. Shrill voiced lead screaming hysterically, & uninspired set. Terribly disappointed by lack of live music!! My heart sank & I almost apologized to my family after the cheesy opening number. The aerialists & acrobats saved the show. I felt bad for the couple who had to share the stage with the princess lead stomping around & singing beneath them. The character Twinkle was a great clown & the audience loved him! We delayed family travel, bought a new suit & wrangled 2 teen boys to this expecting something sophisticated & amazing. I wish we had gone to Dallas Winds instead.

CIRQUE MUSICA ORLANDO

Horrid venue. Awful seating ($128.00 each plus fees), Mixing was as good as any high school play. The Vincent Price voice over was horrible, and muffled. The story line was ridiculous. Overall, the production was an total failure. Security was very slow, and didn't appear to be very organized. Won't do it again. VIP parking was great. Performers were very good. Everything else sucked.

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL GONE BAD

It’s been the worst show we have been to. The acting was so juvenile and the singing was minimal. The worst act were the 3 men acting like Russian acrobats who actually looked more like thugs. The audience was leaving way before intermission which no one understood why there was an intermission. No one was applauding at the acts because there was no reason to. Go see a high school musical. They rehearse a lot and do a fabulous job. I would love my money back.

WORST SHOW I HAVE SEE

If no stars was an option, that is what I would have picked. My husband and two daughters took our neice for her birthday. Had we not brought her we would have left at intermission. I'm still bewildered how this was a professional show. The signing was off key, a 10 yearold could have written a better storyline. The whole show was a mess. The only thing that made this show feel like Christmas, is that they kept telling you it was. Save your money this was truely the worst show I have ever seen.

SAVE YOUR MONEY - HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING AMATEUR PERFORMANCE

If no stars were an option, that would be the rating we would give. This was the worst performance we have ever paid to see, and we left at the intermission - along with a lot of other people. It's a disgrace that they can even be allowed to use the name "Cirque" - very misleading as this was nowhere near the Cirque caliber. We've seen better high school performances, or acts on AGT. We can't believe this was sold as a professional show - where you had to pay actual money to go see it. There was no real storyline, the singing was a screeching mess and off key, the aerial performances were very basic and repetitive, and there was a fairy constantly jumping around the stage annoyingly adding no value at all. I hate giving really bad reviews, but this was truly the worst show we have ever seen, and we don't want others to waste their hard earned cash going to see it.

CIRQUE MUSICA HOLIDAY WONDERLAND

We left 15 min into it. Singing off key more of a children’s play. Wish I would have sold me tickets.😟

DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Did they send the C team to this performance? Was this a joke? 1/3 of the venue left during intermission. The complete lack of any professional talent was so evident. This show was more like a low rent talent show. The Cirque in the name of the show led me to believe that the show would be somewhat comparable to what we’ve seen in Vegas. Not even close. Don’t waste your money.

TERRIBLE!

I can’t believe this was billed as a professional Cirque show! Cirque Musica is no better than a high school talent show,l. The music was TERRIBLE! The performances were absolutely underwhelming. I can’t believe how many people left after the first act, and 1/4 of the even left during intermission. What a joke!

TURNING STONE CASINO SHOW

We left at intermission because, not only was it what I would expect a junior high school production would be and was way too loud. The woman in front of us said she was digging through her purse looking for stuff she could plug her ears with and her Mother turned off her hearing aids and said it’s the first time she could hear without them.

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!

Very cheesy performance. Not at all worth your time and money. When entire rows of seating walk out after intermission and do not return, it says it all. We’ve gone to many performances and this by far has been the most disappointing.

I WANTED TO CHEW MY ARM OFF TO GET AWAY

Horrible. The hostess and host could not sing. The grading off pitch voice was painful. There were a couple of talented performers mixed in with a lot of amateur hoop dancers. 40 minutes of horrible with 10 minutes of talent. It would have been more entertaining if they had shot the midget out of a cannon. I thought it was cirque. What a scam.
