Cirque du Soleil
Cirque Du Soleil happens to be one of my favorite productions ever. My whole family looks forward to attending every new Cirque show that comes through Denver and we’ve yet to be disappointed. I’ve personally only seen only a fraction of the Cirque Du Soleil shows in Las Vegas and again, every one of them was fantastic. Here is a list of all the Cirque shows and the hotels they are at.
O is at The Bellagio
O, whose name is pronounced the same way as “eau”, (the French word for “water”), takes place in, around and above a 1.5 million-gallon pool of water, featuring acts such as synchronized swimming, aerial silks and fire dancing! Since opening in 1998, it has performed continuously to rave reviews and has won various awards for technical excellence.
KÀ is at MGM Grand
Seen by more than one million spectators since its opening in February 2005, this show differs in style from previous Cirque productions with a linear form of storytelling, but each broken up into awesome vignettes starring a multitude of characters that wouldn’t be out of place in a Shakespearean tragedy. Think of a mix between The Tempest with hints of Mulan and Romeo & Juliet, and you may get a hint of what is to come.
Michael Jackson: One is at Mandalay Bay
This specially conceived permanent production was the second project to be developed between Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson following the top-grossing “Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour”, currently playing arenas across the world.

Penn & Teller
Penn & Teller’s brand of awe-inspiring illusions mixed with buddy-comedy shtick has kept the duo at the very top of the magic profession for the past 30 years. Their trademark is the updating of worn out or archaic routines, such as bullet catching or their recent adaptation of the classic bag escape trick (their version involved a lot of helium). Hot off the heels from their stint on Broadway, they’re returning to their Las Vegas residency at the Rio.
Blue Man Group
The avant-garde Blue Man Group combines theatrics, art, music and science to create an interactive, wild and percussion-driven experience full of humor and energy at The Luxor.
