Ulalena is a stage production portraying the history of Hawaii through music, dance, drumming, and incredible staging and movement. The performers are very talented and the lighting and theatrics were incredible.

The show was a nice way to soak in some of the island's history, colors and rhythms. All of the performers are enthusiastic and talented, and this early evening show kickstarted a nice night out for us.

My husband and I are big fans of Cirque du Solei, but this presentation and their lack of budget put all those bigger shows to shame! This show was amazing! I was filled with so much emotion while learning more about Hawaii's, specifically Maui's, history. It was beautiful how they interpreted the connection between human and gods. The props were...

Ulalena is part of the must-do in Lahaina. The show is visually stunning, with dancing, fancy costumes and décors, and well-planned visual backgrounds. And the live music...really nice! Do not expect however to be able to learn about the Hawaiian culture/mythology from this show. The stories are hard to follow, and the focus is really put on the show itself... More

I could tell when the very first dancers glided down the stairs from the back of the theater and walked up on the stage that these performers had some serious skills. They were perfectly motionless except for their legs. The show was good, but the themes were vague enough that I had to rely on what I already knew about... More

The audience gave them a standing ovation, so perhaps it was my mood or expectations, but this didn't wow me. Maybe the reference to Cirque de Soleil skewed my expectations...there were indeed two cirque-style acts, but the majority of the show was musical etc. It was well done -- the theatre is lovely, the costumes and lighting were great, and...
