We are a big fan of Cirque Du Soleil we are always thrilled to go when they come to town, but Amaluna the tour of this year was a huge disappointment. It was my least favorite Cirque Du Soleil show from the past several tours we went to. The clown ladies were not funny at all very annoying ever!! Water bowl, Teeterboard, Chinese Pole and Cali were impressive, but other performances were not surprising noting grabbed us. We didn't like the Uneven bars that all girls did ordinary gymnastic tricks and that was it! The girl who did a balancing trick, took too long I was getting really bored on that. Waste of time! Throughout the show, there was no wow-effect at all. Music was enjoyable so that helped for the night. However, I respect their effort, just didn't turn out exciting.
Love CIRQUE DU SOLEIL.

Went to a Sunday afternoon show. Breathless with anticipation when we took our seats. By
the intermission we thought about leaving. My 9 year old daughter said to me that the clowns
were rude, and I couldn't agree more. I expected more from a 70% female cast. I saw more ass
cheeks and shirts being takien off.I am used to Cirque being more. Miss Algeria, best Cirque
ever. Please go back to that!! Plus I did purchase the playbook and was so disappointed to see
all of the acts that were discuded from our show. For $100+ each seat. I expected SO MUCH
MORE!!! I will rethink ever going to a live show again.

The show had its moments. But certainly not as good as I was expecting. The clown was annoying not nearly as annoying as the woman. I kept thinking "what am I missing?" The lizard dude could really juggle. The music and band was great and the acts of strength by the sub 100lb women were simply amazing. But I was ready to leave immediately after that. There was nothing exciting about the show except for a few tense moments with the cheerleader style acrobatics. Bottom line, you will be disappointed one way or another with this show. I should have read the reviews before going to the show.

UNCOMFORTABLE AND SLOW AT POINTS
We sat in section 200, which I would recommend .. right centered and with no obstructions. It is a very snug "theatre", actually a big top tent in the parking lot.
The seats are extremely narrow. We have sat in tight seating sometimes but this was very uncomfortable le. If you shifted in your chair, the two people on either side of you have to readjust. Think 6 inches narrower than the middle seat of an airplane NARROW!!
The show itself was just OK. 30% was very exciting and 70% just dragged ... on and on ...
Between uncomfortable seating and a show that had a lot of dead time, made for a very LONG evening.
I would not do this show again. This is NOT the Cirque duo Soleil show you think of when you hear about it. This is a spinoff that does NOT do the franchise any favors. If you want to check seeing a Cirque du Soleil show off your Must do list, do NOT see this one.

We are HUGE Cirque fans & our seats were in the front row tonight. At first my husband said he would rather be back a little & then very quickly into the show he said “no, these seats are amazing!” We’ve been to so many show I can’t keep track! I thought the music & performers were amazing! I loved how the performances were different from the other shows. I’ll be honest in that the clowns were just ok & I didn’t get some of the jokes & the balancing act was a bit long but impressive! I would rather have seen another acrobatic act. That was more for America’s Got Talent. All in all we loved it!

AMALUNA WAS GREAT!
Enjoyed another great traveling show in Winnipeg last night. It was really good. The seating was good, with more leg room than the last show we attended. I don't think there was a bad seat in the house! The only issue was getting out of the parking lot. 2 exits and all those cars, it took forever to get out. I would never park in the gates again. In the time that we waited for our turn, we could have easily walked to the Outlet mall or even Ikea parking lot and still had a good head start on the drive home! Overall a fantastic evening! We paid full price for tickets as we bought them as soon as they announced the show, and now they are at least 20 cheaper per seat. I won't do that again!

UNORGANIZED VENUE. PARKING RIP OFF
This was our 1st time going to one of these shows. Even though I never followed any story line I still thought the show was outstanding. Very entertaining.
The venue was not very good. Seating was very tight. We moved to an empty section at intermission to breathe. Washrooms were lacking. Concessions over priced. Parking very unorganized. Unorganized from the directions where to park to the $15 that they charged. Once you arrive at the tent they expect you to buy a parking pass for $15 that you have to show on the way out. My suggestion is don't buy the pass. Exiting was chaotic & I never saw anybody being asked to show their pass. I guess that explains why nobody was purchasing a pass.

I’ve been to half a dozen cirque shows over the years & have been incredibly impressed & entertained every time.. well not this time.. the trademark costumes& makeup just wasn’t there.. the talent was there but the showmanship wasn’t . Normally you feel like you’re entering another world. Watching fascinating creatures doing the impossible.. not with this show..they looked like ordinary acrobats doing a show. I also paid $15 for a parking pass that no one looked at as we were leaving.. concession prices ridiculous too.. i’ll Read reviews before I attend another cirque show.. hope they get their mojo back!

THANKS FOR THE REVIEW
The Big Top is over the top with parking fees, concession prices for popcorn... $10, etc and a lack luster, boring performance with overpriced tickets, that become discounted, when patrons have paid full price. Thanks to all that gave their honest reviews, you saved me a pile of money for something in the future worth seeing at our home town venues.

Saw Amaluna tonight with my family. Amazing acrobatic storytelling with super gymnastic delivery. Staggering human achievement in the art of live entertainment.
Suggest getting tickets ASAP as this show will be a 100% sell out as soon as the word gets out.

My husband and I were very disappointed in Amaluna. We have seen many Cirque Du Soleil shows and Amaluna was not up to par. The sound system was distorted and way too loud.
