Staff Travel Diaries: Cirque du Soleil® in Las Vegas
I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Las Vegas and was lucky enough to take in one of the famous Cirque du Soleil® performances. When you are in Vegas, there are some experiences that just cannot be missed, and this is definitely one of them. I can say with confidence that a Cirque du Soleil show in Vegas is an absolute must do, and I would recommend taking in a show to anyone planning their trip.
With such a variety of shows on offer it can be difficult to make a decision. Each show is unique and there really is something for everyone. I opted to see Mystère™ by Cirque du Soleil® at Treasure Island.
Mystere by Cirque du Soleil is the original Cirque du Soleil production. Combining high energy acrobatics and dramatic dance, the show caters for all ages and is suitable for families. Some of the acrobatic stunts were so intense that I was literally on the edge of my seat! The artists put on an exciting, thrilling show, with comedic acts to entertain the audience. There is also some audience participation which is great. The performance takes places to the thunderous rhythms of the Taiko drums, an amazing experience in itself.
I highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance, so many people are left disappointed when they arrive in Las Vegas only to find out the show is sold out. The shows are incredibly popular and certain performances sell out weeks in advance. I highly recommend pre-booking your tickets to guarantee you get the best seats and avoid any frustration. Don’t worry if the show is close to capacity, the theatre is designed incredibly well, with seats raised all around the stage. With artists on the ground, trapezing through the air and running through the audience, you will always have sight of something.
On the evening of the show, make sure you allow plenty of time and arrive early. The artists come around the audience for photo opportunities and it is a great experience to meet the artists. A fantastic experience for all, but something extra special if you have kids with you.
