A world of imagination awaits, where dreams become reality and reality is only a dream. A world of incredible human strength and stamina, a world of Mystère.

The adventure unfolds as a dream-like journey punctuated by such signature acts as the Korean plank number. A profoundly artistic rendition of circus tradition, Mystère is a vibrant kaleidoscope of breathtaking athleticism and gravity-defying acrobatics.

With a cast of 75 world-renowned artists, this production features outlandish characters such as an electrifying red bird, a jumbo-sized baby and a mischievous clown. Set to an original score and captivating vocals, Mystère continues to challenge limits and explore the imagination.

Welcome to a place where all the world is water and the stage is all the world.

“O” pays tribute to the magic of the theatre—from the simplest street performance to the most lavish of operas—where anything is possible and where the drama of life plays itself out before our very eyes.

The name of the show, which was inspired by the concept of infinity and the elegance of its pure form, is also (phonetically speaking) the French word for water, spelled “eau.” Written and directed by Franco Dragone, who created 10 of Cirque du Soleil’s productions, “O” has brought a new level of performance to the Las Vegas Strip.

With an international cast of 85 acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and characters performing in, on, and above a 1.5 million-gallon pool, “O” tells the tale of theatre through the ages and frees us to lose ourselves in a world without limits.

The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil presents Zumanity, a provocative, cabaret-style production with a Cirque du Soleil twist. Epitomizing contemporary Las Vegas, the adult-themed 90-minute production is unveiled twice nightly, from Wednesday through Sunday at 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., at New York-New York Hotel & Casino.

With Zumanity, Cirque du Soleil takes a bold new direction, exploring the full spectrum of human sexuality and intimacy to create a mosaic of love in all its shapes and forms. Emceed by Zumanity’s resident “Mistress of Seduction” (famed drag diva Joey Arias) and distinguished by unconventional artists and the candid exhibition of sensuality, the production tells a story of emotional freedom, natural beauty and the acceptance of differences.

Featuring 80 performers from around the world, KÀ combines martial arts, acrobatics, puppetry, interactive video projections and pyrotechnics to tell the saga of Imperial twins—a boy and a girl—who embark on an adventurous journey to fulfill their destinies.

KÀ is created and directed by acclaimed theatre and film director Robert Lepage, “Bluebeard’s Castle,” “The Far Side of the Moon”, who describes the story as “the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of KÀ, the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate.” The twins’ journeys take them through a succession of challenging landscapes and ever-changing performance spaces that conjure an entire empire on stage.

The show’s title, KÀ, is inspired by the ancient Egyptian belief in the “ka,” an invisible spiritual duplicate of the body that accompanies every human being throughout this life and into the next.

LOVE will bring the magic of Cirque du Soleil together with the spirit and passion of The Beatles to create an intimate and powerful entertainment experience. The custom-built theatre at The Mirage features 360˚ seating, panoramic video projections and surround sound which will envelop the audience, who will experience The Beatles music like never before…

Presented exclusively at The Mirage in Las Vegas, this joint artistic venture marks the first time that The Beatles company, Apple Corps Ltd., has agreed to a major theatrical partnership. LOVE was born out of a personal friendship and mutual admiration between the late George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté.
CRISS ANGEL Believe will be 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 uniquely woven together by the distinctive imaginations of Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil.

Unlike traditional magic-themed shows, CRISS ANGEL Believe transcends any preconceived notion of what it means to be emotionally engaged by the arts of mysticism and illusion. Imagine a fantasy, an allegory, a highly theatrical tableau of mood, reverie and emotion set against a backdrop of dreamlike darkness and light.

Criss Angel stars as a surreal, enigmatic Victorian Noble. Along a path of imaginative exploration, he encounters Kayala and Crimson, two women who represent different aspects of femininity, four bizarre Ushers, who will introduce the audience to the baroque theater of Criss’s mind and a high-energy troupe of characters and dancers who mix a multitude of styles into a high-energy visual feast, punctuated by moments of grace and sensuality.

The stunning illusions in CRISS ANGEL Believe™ will not be presented as standalone elements, but as interdependent components using heightened imagery, fantastical creatures and impossible feats of legerdemain, all of which will be integrated into the dazzling, colorful fabric of the story.

A tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley

Viva ELVIS, a harmonious fusion of dance, acrobatics and live music, is a tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley. Nostalgia, modernity and raw emotion provide the backdrop for his immortal voice and the exhilaration and beauty of his music.

Created in the image of The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll – powerful, sexy, whimsical, truly unique and larger than life – the show highlights an American icon who transformed popular music and whose image embodies the freedom, excitement and turbulence of his era.

Significant moments in his life – intimate, playful and grandiose – blend with the timeless songs that remain as relevant today as when they first hit the top of the charts. Viva ELVIS focuses on the essential humanity of the one superstar whose name will forever be linked with the history of Las Vegas and the entire world of entertainment: Elvis Presley.
