Not sure about this….yes different but not sure small kids would really enjoy this. My boy aged 6 slept through the entire show. My daughter aged 9 quite liked it. Good to go see it for the cultural experience and if you have the time.

The music was fantastic and a nice cultural thing to do on an afternoon. It goes on just a bit too long though if you have small children.

We booked our tickets through our hotel, you cannot book online. You can buy before performance at box office, reservation not mandatory, but good idea.
