An Octopus's Garden from LOVE

These shows are all tremendously popular, and you should purchase tickets well in advance!


Las Vegas Phantom Now haunting The Venetian in a magnificent $40 million custom-built theatre is Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular.  It's been streamlined to eighteen scenes (by Andrew Llovd Webber and the original director, Hal Prince), but the gorgeous music is intact, accompanied by a live orchestra, and the voices are Broadway-caliber.

Cirque Du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil's Love In LOVE at the Mirage, Cirque du Soleil celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles through their timeless, original recordings.  Over 130 songs (from snippets to fuller versions, remixed and remastered by Beatles producer Sir George Martin and his son, Giles), emvelop the audience in surround sound (including speakers built into the seats), 360° seating, and panoramic video projections.

Tickets for KA are $150, $125, $99, and $69 (plus tax).  Performances are 7:30p.m. and 10:30p.m Thursday through Monday.  There are no performances on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and special dark days.

Cirque du Soleil's KA In KA at the MGM Grand, Cirque du Soleil brings together astonishing acrobatic performances, the thrills and action of martial arts, plus astonishing innovations in puppetry, multimedia and pyrotechnics to tell the epic story of a set of twins on a perilous journey to fulfill their shared destiny.   KÀ brings the visual language of cinema to a dazzling live event that is more about storytelling than any previous Cirque production.  The show's underlying theme of duality is underscored by the opposing powers of fire to create and to destroy.

Tickets for KA are $150, $125, $99, and $69 (plus tax).  Performances are Tuesday through Saturday.  There are no performances on Sundays and Mondays and special dark days.  Effective with the Tuesday, September 12th, 2006 performances, KÀ will change performance times to 6:30pm and 9:30pm.  All performances prior to September 12th will remain at the current times of 7:30pm and 10:30pm.

Cirque du Soleil's O O at the Bellagio is truly amazing.  There are some fine acrobatics, but the staging with the magically appearing and disappearing 1.5 million gallon water pool is the real star of this show.   With a much larger auditorium than the Mystère venue at Treasure Island and more expensive tickets ($99 - $150), it has more revenue to play with and it all shows up on stage.

Tickets for “O” are $150, $125, and $99 (plus tax).  Performances are 7:30p.m. and 10:30p.m Wednesday through Sunday.  There are no performances on Mondays and Tuesdays and special dark days.

Cirque du Soleil's Mystere at Treasure Island MYSTÈRE at Treasure Island is an enjoyable evening with some memorable acts (particularly Hand To Hand, the incredible two-man display of agility and strength, the bungee/trapeze number, and the acrobatics) and quite a bit of filler.  The special effects are pretty much limited to costumes and colored smoke, but it’s fine for kids.

Tickets for Mystère are $95, $75, and $60 (plus tax).   Performances are held Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30p.m. and 10:30p.m. and Sundays at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.  There are no performances on Monday and Tuesday and special dark days.
