The organizers over sell tickets ending up with squeezing people as much as they can. Due to space issues, the audience sits too close to the performers, leaving no space to perform. The show in itself was pretty boring and there was no dance at...More

Overall this experiences was fantastic. They gave you a sheet at the beginning of the show to explain what was happening in the dance, which was very helpful. I would recommend not sitting close to the dancer on the ground as you might get singed....More

Crowded - no emergency exits on the amphitheater, so much people that sat everywhere. You don't understand much and you thank God when it's over. Just a waste of time. Barong dance much better.

The area is arranged in a semi-circle gallery. Sit in the centre, high up for the best view. The show continues even during the rain. The show ends in the darkness, so far better to have your own transportation. The local... More

It’s starts at 6 but I suggest getting there around 5 for a good seat and view of the sunset. We entered the theater area around 5:20 and there were lots of people already there.
