A One-Minute Guide to All the Cirque Shows in Las Vegas

There are so many Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, it’s hard to keep track of them all. Here, then, is our convenient one-minute guide to all the Cirque shows in Las Vegas.

“O” at Bellagio

The water one.

We're just getting started, and we're already sort of creeped out.

“The Beatles Love” at The Mirage

The Beatles one.

The Love theater at The Mirage has 6,341 speakers, which drives the people with OCD crazy.

“Zumanity” at New York-New York

The meh one, but with boobs.

It's supposed to be sexy, but it's sort of sexy in the way mitosis is sexy.

It’s supposed to be all about sex, but it’s sort of about sex the way mitosis is about sex.

“Zarkana” at Aria

The clustery one. (“Zarkana” closed on April 30, 2016.)

Apparently, there were no kitchen sinks available.

This show is full of everything left out of every other Cirque show. Apparently, there were no kitchen sinks available.

“Kà” at MGM Grand

The Asian one.

This one's easy to remember because it's named after the sound a chihuaua makes after it eats too quickly.

“Le Rêve” at Wynn Las Vegas

The one that isn’t a Cirque show.

Close enough, though.

Why split hairs?

“Michael Jackson One” at Mandalay Bay

The alleged pedophile one.

Being talented doesn't get you off the hook.

Sorry, but being talented or dead doesn’t get you off the hook.

“Viva Elvis,” Formerly at Aria

The one that’s left the building.

Also, the one that blew Cirque's GPA.

“Mystere” at Treasure Island

The one we get mixed up with “Kà.”

"Mystere" was originally planned for Caesars Palace, but it was deemed too financially risky. Good call, there.

Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak Live” at Luxor

The one where you demand a refund. Kidding! It’s been retooled. And trust us, “tool” is the operative term here.

Mindfreak Live

There’s barely any Cirque left in the new incarnation of Criss Angel’s show. If only there were less Criss Angel screaming at the top of his lungs for no particular reason.

We hope that helps keep all the Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas straight.

As for our favorites, “Mystere” and “O” are reliably impressive. Just don’t try to figure out the plots. It’s a French-Canadian thing.

    Nice round up of the shows. I saw Zumanity and enjoyed it, it was the only one I saw though so I have nothing to compare it to.
