Cirque du Soleil Shows in Las Vegas
Cirque du Soleil, which translates to “circus of the sun,” is the largest modern circus. The company was first formed in the early 1980s in Quebec, Canada, and is still going strong today. It consists of jugglers, fire breathers, musicians, trapeze artists, dancers, magicians, and even ice skaters for specific shows.
The Canadian company slowly started to dip into international waters and held a North American tour in 1987. As they expanded, they decided to form another touring show, naming it ‘Nouvelle Experience.’
Going to Vegas
Nouvelle Experience was such a hit that the show became a permanent fixture at the Treasure Island Casino in Las Vegas.
The first Cirque du Soleil in Vegas was and is still called ‘Mystère.’ As time passed, more and more shows began to hold residency in Vegas. Presently, Las Vegas has six unique Cirque du Soleil shows:
- ‘Mad Apple' at the New York-New York Hotel
- ‘O’ at the Bellagio
- ‘Michael Jackson ONE’ at the Mandalay Bay Resort
- ‘KÀ’ at the MGM Grand Hotel
- ‘Mystère’ at Treasure Island Casino
- ‘The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage
The Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil Experience
Each troop and show is performed in their personally customized theatres.
The show cinematically acts out battlefield scenes with its original scores. KA has a 360-degree stage and a plethora of aerial acts mixed with martial arts and fireworks. What's best, KÀ even includes a graceful sword fight.
Mad Apple is a show that transports you from Las Vegas to New York City. The magicians, acrobats, musicians, and comedians showcase the Big Apple’s nightlife. It even has a bar that offers drinks to the audience.
Shows such as Beatles LOVE and Michael Jackson ONE are enveloping experiences. The stages have state-of-the-art surround-sound systems and reimagined versions of classic songs with the inclusion of roller skaters, dancers, and aerialists.
While all Cirque du Soleil shows are unforgettable, there are two quintessential shows: Mystère and O.
O (pronounced the same as ‘Eau,’ French for water) is performed atop a 57-million-liter pool. It includes jaw-dropping high dives, aquatic acrobats, and pyrotechnics ablaze on the pool's surface.
On the other hand, the longest-running show in the Nevada desert, Mystère, is known for its fantastical costumes. Besides successfully attracting global audiences for nearly thirty years, Mystère is rife with flying trapeze displays, trampolines, and Japanese Taiko drums.
