    I was absolutely blown away by it. The costumes were outstanding, music fabulous ,scenery amazing and dancing fantastic. Particularly loved Osiel Gouneo faultless and very powerful performance. I loved it so much that I am booking seats in Paris for the June tour. I cannot stop thinking or talking about it. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

    excellent production, almost perfect. I find difficult to rate value for money. I find the price very high.

  • Review Avatar Jan 10, 2020

    I set on the balcony and had a great overview and could see everything. The choreography and dancers were amazing. The story lacked a little bit in the plot so sometimes you felt bored for some minutes but the dances and expressions equalled the nearly out.
