I am a fan of Cirque du Soleil in the tent and at Vegas. But I would have to say this show was my least favorite of all the Cirque du Soleil shows I've seen. I loved the athleticism of the performers. But the pace of the show actually made me and...continued

Seating was horrible. We were put up in section 208 where a stage light continually went on straight in our faces and making it almost impossible to see the performances without getting a migraine headache. The performances were NOT as amazing...continued

Quidam is definitely old school Cirque Du Soleil. The show depended on the pure talent, artisty, and strength of the artists and not flashy high tech special effects and gimmicky routines like many of the newer shows in Vegas (which are...continued

Not worth the drive and not worth the time. The performance of the cast was as expected--FABULOUS! Citizens Business Bank Arena is NOT the right venue for this type of performance! You're better off purchasing tixs to Cirque's Du Soleil's circus...continued

Our seats were also in section 208 and we arrived at 7:30 right when the show was starting only to find our seats were right smack in the middle of the row and someone else was sitting there. The two people who worked at the arena who offered to...continued

This show is over 15 years old, and I saw the original when it opened in 1996. I was pleasantly surprised with how little the show has changed, as it is one of Cirque director Franco Dragone's masterpieces before he left the company.

The venue was not very good for this type of event. The facility was too large.

HORRIBLE seats!!! We too, were in section 208 with the BLINDING light that prevented us from seeing half of the performance! The area had TONS of empty seats, and yet, they would not let us filter into better seats until intermission! At this...continued

The seating was horrid and the bright spotlights in our eyes made it impossible to see. I took 9 other people with me and was embarrassed and angry at the fact that there was no one from the "Arena" to help us or change our seats. I felt like...continued

Almost 20 years ago, Quidam was the first Cirque Du Soleil my wife and I saw.

Since that show, we have seen almost every Cirque Du Soleil show produced.

Although the resurrected Quidam was good, it did not meet our expectations.

At thie...continued

The venue was not prepared for the amount of people who picked up Goldstar tickets at Will Call. I waited in line for 20 minutes. There were so many people still outside the venue I thought that the show would start a few minutes late, but it...continued

The rating is for Gold Star. You failed me. The seating in section 208 was really bad with spotlights aimed into our eyes for many of the acts. I could have paid LESS and gotten BETTER seats on the main floor from TravelZoo.

The venue did not charge for parking (we were delightfully surprised) and the seats do not have cupholders nothing major but you never know how much you really use them until they're not there, can't clap when you're holding your drink.

At the start of the show, I was bored but it got better towards the middle and definitely good after intermission. The acts/acrobats are very good, and comparable to other Cirque d' Soleil i've seen.

I have seen Quidam in the tent and it was much better than in an arena.
It just was not special. I felt like we were watching the training of the performance.
Unfortunately, there was major confusion in the seating. The lack of options prior to...continued

The show was classic Cirque de Soleil though it was a little odd to have it in an arena vs the Big Top. It seems like they should have moved the stage 20 feet closer to the goal/end zone section of the arena and not had the floor seats.

We...continued

The stars are for the performance and certainly not for the seating, venue or lighting. Like other reviewers, I had terrible seats (for the price I paid) and the light kept shining in our eyes. Cirque is much better in a more intimate atmosphere...continued

I was a bit dissapointed, I have been to other Cirque Du Soleil shows which have been great, and this one did not meet my expectations, the seating was really good though (Section 109). I took friends who had never been to one, and they loved it.

I've been to many many Cirque Du Soleils shows including this same show when it last visited, the thing I didn't like was the auditorium seating/ atmosphere when compared to the circus tent seating. The line to pick up tickets...continued

We had good seats, and we enjoyed the show. The arena was quite empty (Friday afternoon show), so felt bad for performers.
