I heard about Cirque du Soleil, but it's quite expensive for a 90 minute show; I would like to know if the money is worth it for this show.

From Melissa DonahueI would definitely recommend spending money on this show -- it is well worth it! La Nouba was my very first Cirque show, and I've seen it twice now. I guess I'm a little biased, though. I've seen all of the Vegas resident shows multiple times, with the exception of the new Elvis show. I've also seen two touring shows, and I have tickets for Allegria in May. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with ANY of their shows. They will blow you away if you've never seen Cirque before! The music is absolutely incredible, too.

It sounds like you have a great trip planned! Enjoy! I'll be heading to Universal in late June -- I can't wait!
From Anthony MurphyI would say it is worth the price....it really is!

I have not seen it for awhile, but I do not remember it being any more expensive than any other Full Cirque show. Now, that is very relative because it is pretty pricey. However, you are seeing quality acrobatics, live singing, and live music. La Nouba is classic Cirque, but is not extremly abstract that you wouldn't be able to follow it.
I would try to see it at least once and have a nice dinner at the House of Blues, Wolfgang Puck, or my favorite, Bongos.
From Robert NilesIs Cirque expensive? Yes.

Does Cirque provide value for the money it charges? Yes, and more than most experiences you'll have as a tourist.
I wouldn't pay money I didn't have set aside for this or any other show, but I'd sure try to cut a few expenses before my trip (lunches and dinners out, for example) to save up to experience a Cirque show.
From Raul AraozAbso-posi-lutely! Cirque makes, perhaps, the greatest theatrical experiences on Earth right now. I just got back from seeing their latest touring show to hit the US - Ovo - and was blown away again. I've now seen 9 of their productions, including La Nouba, and have never tired of them. The music, costumes and athleticism on display is breathtaking. Don't think twice... Go!

From Tony DudaIt also usually has ticket specials for children so be sure to compare prices on different days and times.

From Joshua CounsilIt is definitely worth seeing once. I find young children aren't as appreciative of the experience, which some say is near-spiritual, but if your group is comprised of mostly mature people, then it very well could be the highlight of your trip. It is the best live show I've seen in Orlando (if you don't count The Adventurer's Club, of course!)

From Alvaro ReyesActually we are 3 people, 31, 24 and 9, so there are no children this time, i guess i will save a couple of dollars and go for it ..thanks

From Anthony MurphyWell, 9 is still kinda of a child, but you should go for it! It would not be worth it if you had toddlers since you would be paying a good price and they might be figiting. 9 is perfect!

From Tim WIve been to Disney World so many times, and so many times has this been on my list. It looks great, the last few times we havent had time to go see it though.

From Bob MillerHave always wanted to go see the show, now I think I will but in the near future when Zachary is a little older.

From Chris WaltonI'd go with Blue Man Group. It's an excellent show and much cheaper. You'll likely appreciate the humor they incorporate into their performances as well.
