Cirque Du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas

Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity is definitely one of those Las Vegas shows that is not for kids.  So leave them with family if you are able.  This is a show celebrating human sexuality.  The ushers have on t-shirts that make them look as though they are wearing nothing.  This is a better show if you sit farther away from the stage.  They have some ladies in a large glass container splashing around.  Some of the gymnastics and acrobatics are simply amazing.  The clowns still the show at times.  This one is shown at the New York New York Hotel.

Cirque du Soleil's O is actually spelled as “eau” and is the French word for water.  This production employs a 1.5 million gallon pool where its characters perform amazing acrobatic feats in and around the pool.  This show includes much of the sensual music, humor, and stylistic repertoire of the original show.  This show is at the Bellagio.  There is also a gift shop at the Bellagio with souvenirs from the show.  These include masks, pottery and t-shirts.

Cirque du Soleil's Mystere  began in Montreal as a circus show.  They show many wondrous feats of human agility and strength.  This production showcases one amazing feat after another using contortionists, acrobats, and some aerial tricks.  You can bring your children to this one, if for no other reason, to see the giant snail.  This one is shown at Treasure Island that is right next door to the Mirage.

The showrooms for all three shows have state of the art music and sound systems.  The budget on these shows are astronomical as they have to pay for lighting, costumes, sets, and very high-tech special effects.  They are a wonder to watch and you will want to go back again.
