Las Vegas is famous for its hordes of gamblers betting, winning and losing in its numerous casinos. It’s also known for hosting the planet’s most famous live performances. So if the prospect of saying goodbye to your money on games of luck isn’t your thing, then why not take the chance to see some of the world’s best live shows? There are hundreds of performances every night in Vegas, but one of the most widely acclaimed shows is the Vegas staple – the Cirque du Soleil.
This performance troop operates several different shows, including “O”, which weaves an aquatic tapestry of artistry, surrealism and theatrical romance in this timeless production. The show features an international cast of world-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and characters performing in, on and above water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theatre reminiscent of a European opera house.
If the thought of watching synchronized swimming leaves you yawning, then how about a magic show featuring monstrous cats and heart pounding illusions, wrapped up in a fast-paced show that uses audience participation and stunning dance routines, interweaved with breath-taking magic sequences to inject audiences with amazement? Starring a wide variety of exotic animals, Dirk Arthur’s presentation has been described as a contemporary blend of David Copperfield with Siegfried and Roy. Audience members can get close up and personal with Orange Bengal Tigers, White-Striped Tigers, a pure White Snow Tiger and Black African Leopards.
