Hi Mission, which seats did you get? A good view, any significant benefit (for the price) over the others?

It sounds a bit French...how could it possibly be enjoyable?

MAV we got the AED 800 seats...but got 40% discount due to the National Day long weekend. To be honest it's better to get the seats higher up (which are way cheaper) because then you will get to see the whole stage...being right in the front of the stage was a bit of a disadvantage. Definitely try and get the seating higher up.

there are no words - to be honest i couldn't quite follow the story line and when i asked others who also went they too agreed that it was hard to work out what the story actually was lol.....but to be honest you don't need to follow the story because the show is spectacular.

I heard French is literally a foreign language. There aren't even any English words.

Unbelievable. How do they understand each other?

Just to be pedantic, of course there are English words, "le weekend" being the first which springs to mind and, of course, "internet" and other related words.

The 'keep French language pure' group or whatever they are called are always banging on about the numerous English language words and phrases which are creeping into everyday usage.

NORM are you referring to the show or just in general?

It was an hour and 15 minutes when I went, another 10 minutes taking the bow at the end.

In truth, it's just English badly pronounced. If everyone mispronounces, then everyone can understand. A bit like Welsh, really.
