We are going to Vegas next week. We have already watched several of the Cirque du Soleil shows, so our choices are limited, LOL.

A couple we haven't watched yet are: Zarkana and Zumanity.

Which would you recommend?? TIA

Only one I saw was 'O' and it was amazing! One of the best shows I've ever seen. I also saw it in Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel I believe.

Have Fun!

I didn't care for "O" just a bunch of swimming. And diving.

We've seen Zumanity, it had a really strange ending I didn't see coming. I'm still partial to Mystere, it's one that's been there forever and the seating in the theater is great.
Have fun!

We saw Zarkana last month. It was good. It has a darker feel to it. It didn't have a lot of the jaw dropping acts that other shows we've seen have had. It was mostly traditional circus acts with an edge. The sand artist was original.

My favorite Cirque show is still Mystere. We have seen Mystere, O, Love, Zarkana, and La Nouba (Orlando).

I've heard La Reve is very good. Have you seen that? It's not Cirque but similar.

this topic comes up over an over. "what do i see in las vegas?" so a search might get you some quick info.

we saw love (cirque) and la reve (not cirque). la reve would be a good choice and new to you. it is a water based show.

people have mixed reviews on zumanity.

zarkana is new, so i haven't heard much about it.

We saw LOVE a few weeks ago and I didn't love it, even though I am a huge Beatles fan. It didn't seem to have as many awe-inspiring tricks as the other two shows I've seen (Mystere, La Nouba). The music was great, of course, but I was kinda disappointed.

Mystere has been my least favorite. O was my favorite...or tied with Love. Mystere just seemed old, but the seating is great. We were in the second row, so we were able to see the people up close. We also saw Ka. Can't remember that one much though....I'd agree the acrobatics aren't as awesome in Love, but I thought it was a really cool show.

Thanks for the input. I haven't been disappointed by a Cirque show yet.

I am taking my family to Philly for Father's Day to see Totem. It will be our first show.
