It’s been 20 years since Canadians Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix brought their Cirque du Soleil performance art to Las Vegas.
Cirque launched in Sin City in 1993 with the show ‘Mystere,’ beginning a love affair between the group and the city that would last two decades and see seven more permanent Cirque shows set up residence in Las Vegas hotels: ‘O,’ ‘Zumanity,’ ‘Kà,’ ‘Love,’ ‘Criss Angel: Believe,’ ‘Michael Jackson ONE’ and ‘Zarkana.’
Now, it’s almost impossible to image a trip to Las Vegas without seeing a Cirque du Soleil show.
To celebrate 20 years of powerful and breathtaking performances, Cirque du Soleil is holding Cirque Week in Vegas from Nov. 9 to 16, 2013. Guests save on ticket packages to Cirque performances and have the chance to go behind-the-scenes of Cirque to meet the cast, crew and see how music, state-of-the-art technology and imagination make each Cirque performance mesmerizing.
Packages range from $125 to $585, depending on the number of Cirque shows you plan to see. Participating MGM Resorts are also offering 15% off accommodations during the week.
