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.

In my opinion this is completely overhyped. The dance makes very little sense even when you are given a brochure explaining it act and having fire in the title is extremely misleading as there is very little fire.

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.
