Cirque du Soleil's six resident shows in Las Vegas are more theatrical and elaborate than their touring offerings. But with the economy being soft, there have been some seats going unsold, and to help fill their houses, the Cirque has come up with a special "bring a friend" promotion which lets you buy one ticket at regular price, and another for only $25. Tickets are only sold in pairs with one ticket at standard price, the other at the $25.00. The offer is good for selected shows and seating areas through October 31, 2009. There are service charges on all ticket purchases.
To take advantage of this great deal, go to www.cirquedusoleil.com and enter the code "Summer" when ordering. You can also call 866-998-4830 and use the same code. Here is a rundown of the shows you can choose from:
Mystère is classic Cirque du Soleil, combining the powerful athleticism, high-energy acrobatics and inspiring imagery that has become the company's hallmark. Deemed a theatrical "flower in the desert," Mystère thrills generations of audiences with its exhilarating blend of whimsy, drama and the unimaginable brought to life on stage. Presented exclusively at Treasure Island, Mystère provides the ultimate discovery that life itself is a mystery. I have seen this show three times now, and although it is the longest running in Las Vegas, I discover new elements every time I see it.
Cirque du Soleil paints an aquatic masterpiece of surrealism and theatrical romance in the timeless production, "O". Inspired by the concept of infinity and the elegance of water's pure form, "O" pays tribute to the beauty of the theatre where anything is possible and where the drama of life plays itself out before your very eyes. I was lucky enough to see this show from the "splash" seats. Only at Bellagio, Las Vegas.
Zumanity, The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil, is a seductive twist on reality, making the provocative playful and the forbidden electrifying! Leave all inhibitions at the door and let loose as this adult-themed production takes you on a sexy thrill ride full of sensational acrobatics and naughty fun. Great for the straight set, but rather dull for my gay sensibility. Zumanity was created for adults 18 and over. Only at New York-New York Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas.
KÀ, the unprecedented, gravity-defying production by Cirque du Soleil takes adventure to an all new level. Be awed by a dynamic theatrical landscape, as an entire empire appears on KÀ's colossal stage and a captivating display of aerial acrobatics envelopes the audience. The theatre itself is worth a visit, the hydraulically operated stage is a wonder to behold as it moves up and down, and tilts like a gyroscope. Only at MGM Grand, Las Vegas.
With LOVE, Cirque du Soleil celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles through enhanced versions of their timeless, original recordings. The exuberance of The Beatles is channeled through the youthful, urban energy of a cast of 60 international artists. With panoramic sound and visuals, audiences experience The Beatles as never before. A delightful trip into the past with the best music ever written. Only at The Mirage, Las Vegas.
CRISS ANGEL Believe from Cirque du Soleil is a haunting exploration deep inside the inventive mind of mystifier Criss Angel, as he hovers between the land of the living and a surreal world. This twisted tale is uniquely woven together by the distinctive imaginations of Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil. Exclusively at Luxor Las Vegas. Please be advised: This dramatic production is not for the faint of heart.
