This is a unique and compelling story of the people of Hawaii. The Ulalena Maui Theatre presents a theatrical experience as impressive as the story. This is not just a theatre. It is a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art venue built for this presentation. It employs the talents of some of Hawaii's most distinguished musicians and performers, combining live traditional Hawaiian music with 8-channel surround sound. Talk about Maui entertainment!

Every seat maintains a sense of intimacy and interaction with the performance, blended with acrobatic feats of strength and beauty. Hula is combined with modern dance. Rich costumes, lighting and stage design are woven together into a filagree of fantastic images drawn from Hawaiian legend and history, pulling the viewer out of time and into a place of wonder, experiencing with awe the spirit-filled landscape of the imagination of the ancient Hawaiian story tellers.

"Brought me to tears"
July, 2016
How can a historical review in dance and song bring a pragmatic mainlander to tears? Through beautiful choreography, mesmerizing songs and aerial beauty. Presented with outstanding costumes and simple effects with fabric, percussion and props this production transported me into the lives of early Maui residents. I lived their struggles and emotions as vivid colors filled the stage and extended out into the audience. A must see. One of the highlights of my trip.
Tip: Every seat is a good seat in this small theatre. Be on time, you don't want to miss a moment.

As many times as we visit Maui, we never leave without seeing Ulalena. It is a beautiful story of Hawaii told through a flawless performance. We have seen it 20 times and will go again on our next trip. At times you can even stop and watch the percussionists as they put on a great show of their own. This is an absolute must see while visiting Maui.

This is the second time we have seen Ulalena and we were just as enthralled as the first time. The performers are amazing and the aerialist is spectacular. Great voices with compelling songs. Special shout out to the musicians too. Don't miss it!

"Culturally Brilliant Performance"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 17, 2017 NEW
It is so easy to think of Maui as a fantastic tourist destination- which it is - and not spend enough time on the history and culture. This show brought it to life through modern dance and traditional song. The images representing the various stories were brilliant- I especially liked the waterfall represented by the white silks and the performances of the aerialist representing the chameleon like lizard that infatuated the young Chief. The young male dancer representing the tarot root was brilliant and the lead singer had a lovely voice and was lovely! We had a chance to chat with members of the cast afterwards and got an enhanced understanding of the story - really a must see

My wife and I went to see this production after seeing the ad in the Hana Hou magazine in the airplane all growing up. Everything was magical, from the dancing to the singing, the effects, as well as the instrumentalists. This performance was a very insightful way to see how the Hawaiian Islands began and how they have changed into the way they are today. Absolutely go do this during your visit here.
