For more than twenty years, Cirque du Soleil has been a celebrated icon of Las Vegas entertainment. Centered on The Strip, resident Cirque performances run throughout the year and offer guests world-class acrobatics in a variety of shows for all tastes. Whether you seek a romantic night out or a family-friendly experience, catching a Cirque du Soleil performance in Las Vegas should be at the top of your list.
For true wow factor, I suggest KÀ at MGM Grand. In addition to a compelling storyline told through martial arts, acrobatics, puppetry, and pyrotechnics, the 360-degree rotating stage will mesmerize you as characters swoop and dance gracefully across the continually in motion surface. The hydraulic platform shifts from vertical to horizontal and back again all while performers carry out gravity-defying movements.
I’m a big fan of aerial acrobatics and KÀ certainly delivers. The entire theater sets the scene as performers leap and twirl through the air. The “Wheel of Death” offers edge-of-seat adrenaline rushes as performers dance and defy an impressive rotating machine. And, during “The Storm,” an 1800-pound boat rocks in motion completely under the control of artists performing across its breadth.
KÀ is an invigorating, family-friendly performance that will delight and surprise. After seeing this Cirque show, you’ll definitely want to attend KÀ Theatre Spectacular—a free open house at MGM Grand that shares insider details to the stage and production technology. KÀ Theatre Spectacular is free every Tuesday and Saturday at 11am and 11:30am and is an incredible opportunity to introduce younger family members to the wonderful world of Cirque du Soleil.
