    Le Rêve

    Le Rêve

    Le Rêve was the first production show to open in the Wynn Las Vegas casino resort. It is set in a one million-gallon (water) capacity theater and features diving and feats of strength with state-of-the-art special effects, where no seat is more than 40 feet (12 m) from the stage. The production was created by Franco Dragone and is similar to the shows produced by Cirque du Soleil. Dragone, who was the director behind O, La Nouba, Mystère, Alegría, and Quidam, has not revealed the cost of the production. However, major Las Vegas shows average around $30 to $40 million to produce. Le Rêve was the working name of the resort before it was changed to Wynn Las Vegas. "Le Rêve" means "The Dream" in French, and is the name of the centerpiece painting that Steve Wynn owns, Le Rêve by Picasso. Each member of the cast must become scuba-certified before performing in the theater. The show had its world premiere on May 6, 2005. Recently, Wynn Las Vegas bought the rights to the show from Dragone to make some changes, including the logo. Wynn now owns all rights to the show, with Dragone still on the label. Dragone recently opened a show similar to Le Rêve, though much larger in size with more

    Mystère

    Mystère is a Cirque du Soleil show in permanent residence at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. It is one of seven resident Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, the others being O, Zumanity, Kà, Love, Criss Angel: Believe, and Zarkana. Mystère was first performed on December 25, 1993 and quickly won over audiences with its unique style of circus entertainment. As with many Cirque du Soleil productions, Mystère features a mixture of circus skills, dance, elaborate sets, opera, worldbeat music, and street theatre-style comedy. The idea for Mystère started around 1990. It was originally planned for Caesars Palace with a theme based on Greek and Roman mythology. The plan, however, was scrapped by the casino executives, who thought the project would be too financially risky. Mystère was very different from the typical material they were used to in a Las Vegas show. According to Mystère set designer Michel Crête, "Vegas... was still very influenced by Folies Bergère, with the scarves, feather boas, etc. There was a European culture already in place, oddly enough, not an American one. The people who opened the door for something new were Siegfried

    Criss Angel Believe

    Criss Angel Believe (also written CRISS ANGEL Believe or Criss Angel: Believe) is a 2008 theatrical production involving a collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and Criss Angel, a magician best known for his own television show, Criss Angel Mindfreak. The show is a major show at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas, scheduled for 4,600 performances in the Luxor's 1,600-capacity theater, which was renovated for the show; the show is scheduled for a ten-year run, with an option for a five-year extension. Angel is billed as "co-writer, illusions creator and designer, original concept creator and star." Believe is the sixth Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, following Mystère (1993–present), O (1998–present), Zumanity (2003–present), Kà (2005–present) and Love (2006–present). Angel claimed to have been developing aspects of the show for over 15 years. He originally tried to develop the show for a Broadway run, as well as other casinos, but nothing came to fruition. Eventually, Believe came together when he entered a partnership with Cirque du Soleil and the Luxor's parent company, MGM Mirage Resorts, which financed the show with $100 million. The partnership marked the first time Cirque

    O

    O is a water-themed stage production by Cirque du Soleil, a Canadian circus and entertainment company. The show has been in permanent residence at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, since October 1998. 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-US-gallon (5,700 m) pool of water, featuring water acts such as synchronized swimming as well as aerial and ground acts. The O theatre, which is designed to look similar to a 14th century European opera house, has 1,800 seats, thus allowing the performance to be watched by 3,600 people a night since the performance usually plays twice in a given day. Starting in late October 2010, Cirque du Soleil starting offering backstage tours of the O theatre. The experience allows visitors to see the backstage wings, training rooms, costume workshop, break area, underwater lighting area, and go up to a catwalk into the sound and lighting booths. Not every experience will be the same as the tour is conducted around a "regular day", so performers may or may not be training, rehearsing, or even working out. As of early 2011, O has grossed over a billion

    Jubilee!

    Jubilee! is a long-running Las Vegas Strip-based burlesque show. It opened in August 1981 and was originally produced by Donn Arden. As of 2006, this resident show at Bally's Las Vegas is the longest-running production show in Las Vegas. The Jubilee! showgirls are an icon of old Vegas.

Many of the show's sets date back to the original production and include the sinking of the Titanic. Jubilee!'s principal dancer from the opening night until her departure 23 years later was Linda Green; this record is still hailed in the Guinness Book of World Records.

    Zumanity

    Zumanity is a cabaret-style show from Cirque du Soleil that is resident at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino. It is the first "adult-themed" Cirque du Soleil show, billed as "The Sensual Side of Cirque du Soleil." Zumanity is the third show of six shows from the group that is resident in Las Vegas (alongside Mystère, "O", Kà, LOVE, and "Criss Angel Believe.") The title is a play on the words zoo and humanity, reflecting the show's theme of "the human zoo." Zumanity's music is an eclectic mix of rock, classical, urban, tango, and world music influences. It has lush, sensual rhythms, seductive melodies, and provocative lyrics. Below are the tracks, in order as they appear on the CD.

    Kà

    Kà is a show by Cirque du Soleil at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Created and directed by Robert Lepage, the show and the theater cost $220 million to develop. Kà is the first Cirque du Soleil production that deviates from the company's usual format—the production presents a more straightforward story, unlike the more abstract visuals presented by other Cirque productions. In its review, the Los Angeles Times stated it "may well be the most lavish production in the history of Western theater. It is surely the most technologically advanced." The New York Times highly praised all the technical aspects and costumes, but felt that it did not succeed in a particularly compelling story, rather it was "essentially about the kind of wild physical feats that all Cirque shows are about, their jaw-dropping effect multiplied by the huge dimensions of the theatrical space." The show has been seen by more than one million spectators since its opening in October 2004. Kà lacks a conventional stage with a permanent floor; instead, two giant moving platforms and five smaller lifts and platforms appear to float through a bottomless space. A narrow boardwalk separates the audience from a deep

    LOVE

    LOVE

    Love is a 2006 theatrical production by Cirque du Soleil which combines the re-produced and re-imagined music of The Beatles with an interpretive, circus-based artistic and athletic stage performance. The show plays at a specially built theatre at The Mirage in Las Vegas. A joint venture between Cirque and The Beatles' Apple Corps Ltd, it is the first production that Apple Corps Ltd. has partnered in. Love is written and directed by Dominic Champagne. Music directors are Sir George Martin, producer of nearly all of The Beatles' records, and his son, record producer Giles Martin. A soundtrack album of the show was released in November 2006. On June 26, 2007, the surviving members of The Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, and the widows of George Harrison (Olivia Harrison) and John Lennon (Yoko Ono) appeared on CNN's Larry King Live at The Mirage. The project arose from discussions in 2000 between George Harrison and his friend Guy Laliberté, one of Cirque's founders. Three years of negotiations between surviving members of The Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, The Beatles widows Olivia Harrison (representing George Harrison) and Yoko Ono (representing John Lennon),
