disappointing

disappointingI had never seen any Cirque du Soleil shows before and I was pretty disappointed. One of my friends who saw it with me said there were only two or three things that were typical of Cirque shows. The stage was definitely unique and inventive- it could rotate around and became vertical at two different points during the show, but the story was slow and confusing. It didn't wow me like I had expected it to. There are a few martial arts scenes that just go on for too long and get to be boring. The two people next to me fell asleep and I was having to fight to keep my eyes open towards the end too. We got our tickets for free as part of a package so we were in the second to last row, so I am really glad we didn't pay for those tickets. The stage was cool and the set came out into the audience, which was also cool, but it was not as entertaining or spectacular as I was hoping.

Over Rated in my opinion

Over Rated in my opinionI read all the great reviews of this modern circus show and then planned to attended it. I was not really enthused. However, the show is fantastically artistic, the staff is very talented, stage was super cool...BUT...the story-line is almost impossible to follow and found I myself very bored with the show once I couldn't follow it.

Standing ovations all round

On my Wife's birthday we had the pleasure of seeing KA by Cirque De Soleil. This was our first experience of any Cirque show and we were blown away, as were most of the crowd. I had managed to get category two seats for $50 each through the Ticketmaster promotion and we were so close to the stage you could almost touch it. Excellent seats. The show itself was amazing and all I can say is that if people rate KA as the worst CDS show in Vegas then the others must be phenomenal. Well worth going to see, I would have been happy paying full price.

As for the previous reviewer stating people walked out, well in our showing people stood up and clapped for at least 5 minutes after the show ended. Everybody I spoke to on the way out only had positive things to say about the show.

Different people, different opinions, it is always going to happen but don't let a bad review put you off seeing KA at least once in your lifetime

Absolutly Jaw Dropping! best anything I have seen

This show totally exceeded all my expectations. From the moment you walk in the door the ticket checkers are already in character. Then you arrive in a full service bar/lounge area where you can purchase drinks. Which is not a bad idea seeing that the show is 1.5 hours long. On your way to your seat you are greeted by friendly characters that entertain you to your seats. As you arrive to your seats you are engrossed in a 360 degree entertainment arena. About 20 minutes before the show starts performers are using the ceilings and wall structures as performance platforms as well as soaring above the seating area. Even the simple task of telling you to turn off phone and put area your camera is incorporated into the experience.

As far as the show goes it is 1.5 hours of pure entertainment. Cirque du Soleil really knows how to put on a show. The stage/s are 360 degree platforms that house incredible acts of gymnastics, dance, music and story telling. Without giving away anything that happens all I will say is they really pay attention to detail on a grand scale. At times you don't know where to look there is so much excitement going on.

This was by far my most memorable part of Las Vegas. Also it was the best bang for the buck . I would recommend this to anyone and everyone that is staying anywhere near the MGM Grand. It is family friendly as well so it is safe to take your little ones. You will not soon forget the KA experience

From the time you first enter the exoticly decorated theater you become part of the experience

Unlike other Cirque type shows that seem to be a bit androgenously confusing this show is more specific. It follows an easy to understand storyline and features amazing acrobatic skills and breathtaking use of height and three dimentional space. You have to see it to believe it. Can you imagine a martial arts battle that occurrs entirely on a vertical plane?

This is a great show for any age and does not require any understanding of language. This makes it a great choice if you are entertaining visitors from foreign lands. No translating necessary.

KA by Cirque du Soleil Show Review

This was not the first choice of shows for us to see but the tickets for our family of 5, were in our price range. We were amazingly impressed with the story line and the performance as a whole. MGM's theater is incredible.  Not only is the stage itself a wonder but towers, which you have to see, are built beyond the stage and almost surround the audience. PLUS, there are speakers in each seat so that you get the whole effect of the show no matter where you sit.

We all agreed that this was an amazing live show that we will remember for years to come.

Really awesome stage

The only thing I really liked about the show was some of the staging. The rotating stage is amazing, but I wasn't a fan of the story line. It didn't really make sense to me and I wasn't a big fan. When explained afterwards what the story was about, it made a lot more sense. I think cirque went over the top with the stage and created something worth watching, but not really worth experiencing. The problem with cirque is overstimulation, and this show is a perfect example. There was very little speaking in this show, and while the music was great, it didn't have a lot of meaning. I didn't really understand what I was watching without the back story and although it was cool, I can't really recommend it. I think they did an amzing job with the stage and with some serious reworking of the plot and the explanation of the tale, it could really be a fantastic show.

Outstanding Production- KA Cirque de Soleil

OUTSTANDING, OUTSTANDING, OUTSTANDING OUTSTANDING

Do you get the idea?  The show KA Cirque de Soleil was a masterpiece.  Not many words can be found to describe this production.  We were all fascinated with the storyline.  Everything came together so beautifully; the art, the techniques, the talent, the brilliance!

Standing Ovation for KA, that's for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KA is awesome!

The way the theater is set up you feel as if Cirque is creating a new world for you to become a part of. The ambience is very cool. From the minute the show starts, you know it's going to be an incrediable ride. I won't give away any of the suprises, but I will tell you that you're going to be hit with a completely new dimension of performance. The closer you are to the stage, the better the show. I was so impressed by the boat prop, and how the illusion that was created really made me feel as if I was in another realm. The gamat of emotions felt during this preformance is overwhelming...beauty, peacefulness, happiness, then BAM! DRAMA!

Indeed, I didn't expect for Cirque to present such a brilliant and moving story, but they delivered in spades. I didn't want the show to end. I wanted to follow the characters on for hours. Perhaps, someday a movie will be made out of this show. The costumes were genius. It really is awesome how Cirque always find a new way to suprise and impress you.

KA is a must see!

KA is definitely a must see in the Cirque Family.  The storyline is not too difficult to follow though for younger kids it might be.  This would not keep them from thoroughly enjoying the show though. 

The set design is awesome.  The stage seems like it's a performer, doing it's own tricks.  It is massive in size and just about every seat in the audience is good.

We enjoyed it so much and have it on our list of things to do AGAIN-

KA by Cirque du Soleil

i have never seen something like this in my lifetime...their bodies can contort into the most bizarre positions. i enjoyed the acting or would it be considered movement. the story kinda escaped me but the whole feeling in the room was nice. the mgm has done an extensive job at creating a great place for the this show. it was a bonus to not have to walk very far to see this. we were staying at the mgm and the show takes place at the hotel. good music. perfect bodies. very entertaining.
