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 closed one.

Apparently, there were no kitchen sinks available.

“Zarkana” closed on April 30, 2016. You didn’t miss anything.

“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 Planet Hollywood

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.

“Blue Man Group”

The one you didn’t expect to see on this list. That’s right, Luxor’s “Blue Man Group” was purchased by Cirque du Soleil in July 2017.

Blue Man Group

Quirky. Funny. Rhythmic. Earless. “Blue Man Group” is a Vegas must-see.

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.

    Good thing MJ was already off the hook when he was acquitted of all charges. I used to be one of those idiots who fell for the media spin around Mike’s alleged accusations. If it weren’t for so many willing to settle out of court, I would’ve believed the parents actually were concerned about their children.

    In any case, I didn’t wanna watch the Vegas show bc I thought it wouldn’t have lived up to MJ’s expectations. My sisters forced me to go last Thursday, when we stayed at Mandalay Bay for Thanksgiving. IT WAS PHENOMENAL. I mean it started off meh, but quickly redeemed itself. We rewatched La Reve a few days later. La Reve used to be my favorite, but after watching Michael Jackson ONE, I left bored. They changed La Reve’s plot and changed the lead character, it’s just not as good anymore.

    I’ve also seen O which was a tied favorite with La Reve, but will now be my sole favorite with Luzia being my 2nd favorite. Corteo as my 3rd. MJ’s ONE now being 4th. La Reve demoted to 5th, bumping Toruk down to 6th. I’ve watched 4 other Cirque tours, but only 3 Vegas-based ones. I’m looking forward to Ka and Mystere on my next visit to Vegas — but let me tell you, after seeing MJ’s tribute, I now want to see Beatles LOVE!
