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.

That 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!

The 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.

Pros: Everything

Cons: None

Expected more after seeing O. The floating stage was the best part along with the guys at the ends on the wheels. Can't they be a little more clear about who is who and what is going on? If you have anything but a front row seat, then you can't tell who is the prince or princess or who are the supporting casts, etc. Very frustrating to try and follow although music and creatures on island were especially fun. If you plan on spending this much money, you deserve to be able to follow what is happening-have costumes or something give clear clues as to who is who----it is barely 90 minutes if that...best part is last 10 minutes.

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.

Pros: Cirque Show

Cons: Overpriced and worst one/tourist trap

What a wonderful theatre and show. From the time you walk into the theatre everyone that works there is in costume. I really enjoyed the show ..other then the rude drunk people that sat behind me and talked the whole time.

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.

Pros: Stage technology was amazing

Cons: Too expensive for what you get out of the show.

I've seen 4 other Cirque shows in Vegas. This is the worst one in my opinion. For the price, your better off checking out any of the other 4. I agree with a previous post when it was stated that the performers were not very impressive. I usually leave Cirque with a sense of awe and amazement. That was not the case with this show. Fight scenes did not look real, they made shadow puppets, and the acrobatics were almost non-existent. The highlight is the costumes, the stage itself, and the two long-haired guys that were in the large spinning contraption towards the end. The soundtrack was also very well done.

Pros: Stage & lighting

Cons: Not quite on the same level as other Cirque shows

I will preface this by saying I participate in combat arts and I grew up watching various Cirque du Soleil shows. That being said, this show was very average, for Cirque. I was more entranced by the sets, costuming, and lighting than by most of the show itself. In fact, parts of the show were serious yawners. Non-martial arts fanatics may be impressed by the sloppy Wushu and stylized fights, which comments from the exiting crowd seemed to indicate. I wasn't. I wasn't at all impressed by the physical abilities of the performers, not when the very traditional Cirque show Mystere is still running, and IMHO, superior in that aspect. The music was good and very rock influenced, which is a nice change of pace from the usual ethereal choral base. If choosing a Cirque show to see in Vegas, my recommendation would still go to O at Bellagio.

perhaps not may favorite cirque, but there's so many in vegas... how can one compete? if you must watch: 1.) reserve early and ask for the first row balcony. those are the best seats for your money, even if they tell you that there's not a bad seat in the house; 2.) come early, they may ask you to be part of the show; and, 3.) watch your drinks. what you think is a table may really be part of the stage. but, don't fear, there are cupholders on the seats themselves.

Pros: hydrolicly powered stage

Cons: expensive, but well worth the cost

.

This is the best show in the strip. The script, the stage and evrything else is exsquisite. From the massive floating stage to the depths of the abyss things, including a sinking ship, fall into strain your mind in awe. Enchanted forest and creatures to snow storms with falling ice projected skyward keep you asking "what else can they think of?" Expensive but worth every penny.

This show is guaranteed to shake you out of your seat. The speakers are wired into every seat and the score is exsquisite. From the massive floating stage to the depths of the abyss things, including a sinking ship, fall into strain your mind in awe. Enchanted forest and creatures to snow storms with falling ice projected skyward keep you asking "what else can they think of?" Worth every cent of the $125.00-$150.00 ticket price.

I don't know what show a lot of these other reviewers saw. Ka is wonderful. It has a storyline, is incredibly theatrical, and just breathtaking. Definitely a MUST SEE in Vegas.

This show was extremely disappointing.

There were a few entertaining parts and the set & stage are fantastic. BUT the show itself follows too much of a story. This show is not the flying around the theatre, acrobatic performance you expect to see at a Cirque show.
At one point in the show, they were doing shadow puppets with their fingers. This is not what we paid $100 a seat to see. If I wasn't sitting right in the middle of the row & had to climb over a dozen people I swear I would have walked out of this performance.
If you're going to drop $100 on a ticket see ANY OTHER Cirque show but this one!!!!

Pros: The set, the stage

Cons: lack of acrobats, too much story, not live music

.

While the show did have some entertaining parts, overall it was a disappointment. I saw it with five women and the overall consensus was that it was a letdown. The set is interesting, but the storyline was difficult to follow and the show lacked in the expected Cirque acrobatics. I'm not sure why it is getting such great reviews. I've seen three other Cirque du Soleil shows and this was my least favorite. Save your $125 for "O" of any other Vegas show. Some of us even napped during the performance--if that tells you anything.

ka may be different from the other cirque shows but i've seen it 3 times. It is much more theatrical that the others and if you open you're mind to other possibilites that to a cookie cut of the other shows then you can see that this show was created with a storyling. amazing special effects and costumes. and like the other cirque shows, the music is live. i recommend it highly to anyo who wants something different. if you're looking for a duplicate of O or mystere then move on.

Pros: no obstructions, well staffed

Cons: late arrivals

I've seen many Cirque du Soleil shows over the years and enjoyed them all. I was therefore very excited to be able to get tickets (even at $300) to see "Ka" in Las Vegas and share it with my boyfriend who had never seen the company perform before.

Well, the excitement died out after about 5 minutes into the show. It had nothing of what you would expect from a Cirque performance. No unbelievable acrobatics. No amazing feats of balance or contortionism. Instead you got a baton-twirling, dance show. The action was so slow, I actually fell asleep for a moment. Other people were leaving halfway through. For a classic Cirque experience in Las Vegas, see "O" or "Mystere" instead.

this is the concert venue in the MGM hotel. it holds approx 15,000. I saw pearl jam here in 2000. it's a decent concert venue. nothing special. I was staying right in the MGM hotel so it was obviously easy to get to the arena. just take the elevator down a floor, walk thru the casino, and you are right there. after the show you can head back to your room or head right out to the Strip for some late-night partying

Pros: right in the hotel, on the strip

Editorial from

In Short
Located inside the world's largest hotel, the MGM Grand Garden is one of Vegas' top arena-size music venues, with fairly decent sightlines and acoustics. As far as pop music goes, this is the Strip's "big room" that…
