Cirque du Soleil Shows In Vegas
NOTE: Both O and Mystere are resuming shows on July 1st, 2021. No date has been announced for the rest of the Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil lineup at this time.
Mystere at TI: According to the over 2,000 customer reviews on Vegas.com, Mystere is tied for the title of best Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, earning 4.7/5 stars. Holding a spot close to my heart, Mystere was the first Cirque show I ever experienced, and it didn’t disappoint. Typical of Cirque productions, the storyline is somewhat difficult to follow, but that doesn’t matter as the acrobatics and visuals are spectacular. As an added bonus, tickets to Mystere tend to be on the cheaper end of the Cirque spectrum and can be purchased here with the box office, or with Vegas.com here. Price it out to see which is the better deal!
The Beatles LOVE at Mirage: With sets that are choreographed to hit songs like “Here Comes the Sun”, “Help!”, “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds”, “Strawberry Fields Forever”, and “All You Need Is Love”, fans of the Beatles are sure to be enamored with LOVE. Described as a psychedelic journey through the band’s iconic song catalog, The Beatles LOVE has earned 4.7/5 stars on Vegas.com earning the show a tie for the title of best Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas. Shop for tickets and view pricing at both the box office, and here, with Vegas.com to find the best deal!
O at Bellagio: The name O is used due to the letter’s audible resemblance to the French word “Eau” which means water, which you’ll realize is the focal point of the show. O at Bellagio takes the typical acrobatic wonders displayed by Cirque and incorporates a 25-foot deep pool filled with 1.5 million gallons of water. While not the cheapest Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas, O is generally recognized as being among the best earning 4.6/5 stars. Tickets can be purchased directly with the box office here, or at Vegas.com here.
Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay: Fans of the “King of Pop” will enjoy this Cirque show set to a collection of his music. While the physical feats, acrobatics, and flying performers are sure to amaze, guests will also enjoy the focus on sound quality as each seat has 3 audio speakers built into them. In addition to an abundance of speakers, the theater is equipped with over 550 lighting features, 26 projectors, and a 40-foot wide LED screen. Reviews are also strong with audience members awarding 4.6/5 stars. You can price out your options, and purchase tickets here, with the box office, or with Vegas.com here.
KA at MGM Grand: Although not at the top of our list of Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, KA still boasts a quite respectable 4.5/5 star review from attendees on Vegas.com. Personally, this was one of the more enjoyable productions we have seen in Vegas due to the moving stage and “Wheel of Death” among other impressive acrobatic and cinematic elements. For advance ticketing, we again recommend checking both directly with the venue, or here, with Vegas.com to get the best deal.
