A masterpiece in storytelling, KA uses acrobatic performances, the thrills and action of martial arts techniques from all over the world, plus innovations in puppetry and multimedia to tell the epic tale of twins on a perilous journey to fulfill their shared destiny.
Along the way, the twins confront characters and events representing the opposing forces of good and evil. Before their world comes under attack and collapses.. around them, the twins receive a magical talisman for protection. As the plot unfolds, danger lies in wait for them at every turn. KA by Cirque du Soleil brings the visual language of cinema to a dazzling live event that is more about storytelling than any previous Cirque.

I've seen all the Cirque Shows and this one is my least favorite.I can't believe that i was fall sleep in this show. I enjoyed ""O"" more than any other Cirque show and recommend that one above all others.

First off, if you're expecting a typical Cirque show with nothing but acrobatics, then you're likely to be disappointed. Ka is more like a ballet with the option to use ""in the air"" as a performance area. There were some amazing acrobatics and other tricks (the twirler was particularly good, she did things I've never seen anyone else do!), the focus is more on the story, so it's less of an all-out acrobatic-fest.\r\rThat said, the performance was amazing. I chose it over the others because it did seem more like a ballet- something I enjoy- and it did not disappoint. The stage was an amazing piece of work- sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not, sometimes it's vertical, sometimes it's on an incline- just seeing what they did with the stage next was fantastic fun. The performers did a great job and the guy who played the bodyguard for the twins was amazing- my only complaint was that he didn't get more stage time! \r\rThe music was great and the story was easy to follow. The pre-show shows were fun and the speakers inside the seats were a surprise and added a lot to the experience. If you just want to see one acrobatic trick after another, pick a different Cirque show. If you want to watch a cross between a ballet and aerial kung-fu flicks, this is the show for you.

I've seen all the Cirque Shows and this one is my least favorite. For the amount of money that was spent (over $400 for 4 people not including $37 for 3 waters and 1 bag of popcorn) I certainly expected a better show. They even refused to give us the standard ""Locals Discount"". Just seemed like performers were going through the motions. I enjoyed ""O"" more than any other Cirque show and recommend that one above all others. Overall it was a huge disappointment.

I went over for a weekend stay and got a great deal for the room on the new west wing. Great location, room was spacey and neat. Not noisey at all. Has an independent entrance and elevator. The only thin g bathrooms are integrated sortof to the rest of the room....

I guess I went to this show expecting something more spectacular. There were a few scenes that were pretty amzaing. But the story line was so weak it was hard to follow and understand. A few unneeded characters ...would have liked to have seen more pyrotechnics during the show and more arial stunts over the audience. The floating rotating stage was amazing...still trying to figure that one out. Could use a finale overhaul.
