For those who had seen "O" by Cirque du Soleil or familiar with their productions, this show is not particularly original. The stage is awesome though and the HK$2 billion (around US$300 million) production had me going into the theater with high expectations. For HK$680 ticket, it's reasonable for show of this caliber. However, the lack of a singing voice in its production made it lackluster, unlike those of Cirque du Soleil.
Do not try to get the HK$380 tickets as you'll most likely get wet (very!) from the splashes by the performers! When I saw the performance last sunday afternoon, the theater was fully packed. I believe it seats some 2000 audiences!
