What I liked

The performance is superb and mind blowing— the visuals are gorgeous, the sound works perfectly with the story and performance. It was all so confidently staged and masterfully executed,

What I didn't like

nothing— they got everything right!

My overall impression

Every aspect of this show was stunning and executed with such confidence and skill. The lighting, the costumes, the sound design, music and choreography were superb. And Yokko, the performer, gave one of the most powerful and emotional performances I have ever seen. Within minutes of the show starting, I felt like I was hit by a wave of emotional force. This performer conjured up such an intense storm of feelings in such a masterful way— I have never seen someone own a stage quite like this before.
