Last few days ago, some of my relatives and I flew in to Macau for a holiday trip. It was their first time in Macau so I, being the only person in the group who have toured around the City, became their guide to visit tourists spots and at the same time photographer.
When Aunt Hattie and I are still discussing on the place to visit, I recommended on watching the latest attraction that Macau offers to their visitors – The House of the Dancing Water. However, due to seat availability and expensive ticket prices, we opted of watching Zaia at Venetian Macau.
Venetian Macau houses the Zaia Theater. It is not that difficult to find as almost all parts of the Hotel has marks on where the theater is. We booked for the HKD 388 per person and amazingly even if we had the cheapest ticket there’s no need of steiner binoculars just to get a better view of the show and their performances.
The theater can accommodate 1,800 people seated on a cushioned seats. As soon as you step in on the entrance, it will give you the illusion of being on the space with all the lights lit up on the hall way.
Zaia is the first resident show in Asia by Cirque du Soleil. It is all about a journey of a young girl in exploring the space, and her perception of stars and planet. Like any other Cirque du Soleil’s show, Zaia focuses on performance and not on the story. So if you’re looking for a Broadway show, you would be disappointed as Zaia focuses on performance and not on the story line. However, it is still a must see performance as the acrobats, gymnasts, trapeze artists and fire breathers were superb. I would still recommend the show even if it will just makes you amaze of their stunts, costumes and production design. Anyway, that’s Cirque du Soleil is for – Circus Performance.
