History and Background
Absinthe was supposed to be played at the Fontainebleau Resort Las Vegas, unfortunately, the Fontainebleau Resort was closed at that time and the show producers were given permission by the Caesars Palace to build a temporary tent at the Roman Plaza for their shelter during shows.
The show was performed on the plaza for 90 days, by their misfortune, the show producers and organizers were told to shut down the production.
Their 90 days of performing on the plaza turned out very successful and because of this, President Gary Selesner bought a Spiegeltent from Germany and had it installed on the site for the replacement of the original tent used by the whole cast of Absinthe.
The show is currently owned by Spiegelworld and produced by Ross Mollison. Prior to this, the show was choreographed by Lucas Newland and directed by Wayne Harrison.
The whole cast of Absinthe celebrated its 1000th live show performance at Caesars Palace being dressed up as Zombies. The show celebrated its 1,500th live show performance at Caesars Palace on April 2014. Absinthe is expected to continue performing at Caesars Palace.
