The Basics

House of the Dancing Water is performed in a 270-degree theater, where the first four rows of certain zones are considered splash seats. The show is completely nonverbal. Visitors can choose between two showtimes on most evenings, and tickets are divided into four categories based on their view of the stage. The performance tells the story of Coloane, a fisherman who is transported to a world of princesses, pirates, and an evil stepmother.
