Fodor's Expert Review Ulalena at Maui Theatre
One of Maui's hottest tickets, Ulalena is a musical extravaganza that has received accolades from audiences and Hawaiian culture experts. The powerful ensemble of singers, dancers, and musicians (more than 100 instruments played live) use creative stage wizardry to give an enchanting portrayal of island history and mythology. Native rhythms from authentic and rare instruments are blended with heart-wrenching chants and aerialist precision, making the 75-minute production seem like a whirlwind. Beer and wine are for sale at the concession stand. Call for details about dinner-theater packages in conjunction with local restaurants.
