Oh Cirque du Soleil, we were so enamored with your tent show of Corteo 10 years ago. From the ushers and charming drink vendors, heck even the food stands were chic! We were more than happy to buy your DVDs and souvenirs at intermission. Last night we just came back from Cirque du Soleil meets Hockey Night in Canada. Sorry Cirque organizers, but a hockey arena is made of concrete: music too loud to make up for zero acoustics. Chairs in VIP section were VERY uncomfortable, views often obstructed by the additional equipment needed to perform in an Arena. Ushers incompetent, sent us in the wrong direction, rude, impatient. Ditto for the food/drink vendors. If Cirque continues to only perform in Hockey Arenas across Canada, we will never go again. I guess we will have to go to Los Vegas or Florida for a real Cirque show. The show was fantastic and is the reason I gave it 3 stars. The Hockey Arena setting dampened all of the artistic aspects the show.

At intermission. Overall e patience of getting and performance not great. Must admit my max time for arvtobstics is 15- 30 minutes max. Best - the planning. Acrobatics OK, a fair bit of filler. One time of seeing this is more than enough

2.0 star rating Esther from Toronto, Ontario


Incomprehensible story line, boring costumes, music too loud, not much too see from arena seating. Probably better sight lines from floor level. Would have been better in a small theater or tent. Most of the dialogue was in Italian which stopped being cute after 5 minutes. Totally disappointing and lackluster.

2.0 star rating Laura from Nashville, Tennessee


Loud music, technical difficulties, mistakes, falls, etc made this a disappointing show. We attend many types of performances and were very disappointed. Some good acts, but not enough to make up for the rest. Story unclear, seemed unfocused,

2.0 star rating Jacqueline from Oshawa, Ontario


Had no idea what was going on as the audio was terrible but normally that wouldn't bother me with a Cirque show as there is so much going on but in this particular show there is not so much. I was pretty disappointed. If you haven't seen one before you would probably really like it but if you have I would suggest you give this one a miss. There was too much 'story' with actually no story and not enough action.

Music was too loud. Acrobatics were good. But very repetitious.Nothing like the show under the big top 5 years ago. It was spectacular. Not a great performance for small children. I'm still annoyed that venues can charge 3.75 for a bottle of water and 5.50 for a bag of popcorn!

2.0 star rating Mike from Houston, Texas


Some of the acts were very very good. But it was not a great show, and some acts were just mediocre , with some errors. But there was technical difficulty at the Saturday matinee I attended, and 15 minutes of the show was cancelled. Effectively, that was $75 lost to me since I bought 3 tickets. I paid extra to park in Toyota Tundra Garage attached to Toyota Center, because I thought I could get in and out quick. It took me close to 45 minutes just to get out of the parking garage. You would have thought the parking garage attached to Toyota Center never dealt with events. I, would never park there again!!
