The Best Las Vegas Shows are Cirque Du Soleil Shows

By

The experience is always one you will never forget as the acrobatic entertainers in every Cirque du Soleil performance amaze you like never before. Imagine what the circus of your imagination would be like and you might come close to defining what you will see at a Cirque du Soleil production.

I have often described LOVE as the Best Show in Las Vegas and the truth is it is hard to beat. This production of Cirque du Soleil, The Beatles LOVE, is a celebration of the Beatles and their music. Imagine the artistic expressions of your favorite Cirque du Soleil performances blended with the music of one of the greatest musical groups of all time and you get Love.

3. Zarkana at Aria Las Vegas

Cirque du Soleil is now synonymous with Las Vegas and depending on your mood you can see any variety of show. Recall to back when you were a kid and you looked forward to seeing a circus. You expected a few things. The three rings, the clowns, the lions. Well, Zarakana by Cirque Du Soleil does just that for you. It gives you exactly what you expected. There is no magician trying to make it their show and there is no legendary musical group behind this production. With Zarkana you get precisely what you came for and that is what Cirque Du Soleil is all about.

4. Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil at New York New York Hotel

If you enjoy adult humor and references to the naughty things we think about in the bedroom you will enjoy this. I would suggest seeing it with your partner because just heading in with one of your friends can get a little weird. Open your eyes, open your mind and open your heart. Zumanity engulfs you in an erotic and sensual adventure that blends art and sexuality. How do you define yourself? You could learn a few things about who you are and who you really want to be at Zumanity.

5. Mystere by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island Las Vegas

I believe this is still my favorite show in Las Vegas. Do you want to introduce your children to Cirque du Soleil, this is the show. It is by no means a kid show but it does transcend all age groups. The music holds your attention as it accents the performance. Make sure to get to the theatre early just to enjoy the pre-show entertainment.

Show Times:
Saturday - Wednesday 7:00 p.m. & 9:30 p.m.
Dark Days: Thursday and Friday
Length of Show: 90 minutes

6. KA by Cirque du Soleil at the MGM Grand Hotel

Cirque Du Soleil
KA is the one Cirque Du Soleil show that I don't necessarily push people to see. I'll explain it and help people make a decision on the show, but I don't tell them to pick it over some of the other shows on the strip. It has great sets and outstanding performers but in comparison to other Cirque Du Soleil shows it falls flat for me. However, I have two friends that I respect for their taste and experience and they call it the best show on the strip. It's Cirque du Soleil so you know it's good.

KA at MGM Grand Las Vegas
Show Times:
Tuesday - Saturday 7:00 p.m. & 9:30 p.m.
Dark Days: Sunday and Monday
Length of Show: 90 minutes

7. "O" by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio Hotel

Cirque Du Soleil

Do you get sea sick? Imagine very talented performers dazzling you with their acrobatic skills in and around water. Don't try to figure out the logistics, just enjoy the show and appreciate the imagery. This show is often voted the very best of Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.

Show Times:
Wednesday- Sunday 7:30 p.m. & 10:00 p.m.
Dark Days: Monday and Tuesday
Length of Show: 90 minutes

8. Criss Angel Believe

Criss Angel performs his magic in somewhat of a Cirque Du Soleil format. If you are a fan you are going to be intrigued by the show but if you are less familiar with him it might not work for you. Of all the Cirque Du Soleil shows this is the one that I hear the most inconsistent comments about. It's a toss up as to whether this one is a hit or a miss.

Show Times:
Tuesday, Friday and Saturday 7:00 p.m. & 9:30 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday 7:00 p.m.
Dark Days: Sunday and Monday
