Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas


When in Las Vegas you have to take in a show or two!  I've been lucky enough to attend numerous shows but the Cirque du Soleil shows are always my favorite!  The girls and I chose to see Zarkana as our Cirque du Soleil show!  We headed out for dinner at SHe by Morton's before the show we may have enjoyed a glass of wine in the lounge because when you don't have kids to worry about why not let loose and have a little fun!

Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil is an acrobatic rock experience that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical virtuosity rubs shoulders with the strange.

Zark, the ringmaster of an extraordinary circus coming back to life, guides us in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. Among other attractions, he introduces the Mutants, four sirens as sinister as they are fabulous.  Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted musical and acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the show!  The costumes had a modern twist on the 1920s and 1930s and with 250 costumes for the entire show I'm sure the designer had a lot of fun creating them.  Every detail is thought out when creating the show and designing the costumes and sets.  Did you know that red and pink were chosen as a sign of love and passion?  If you look closely you would of noticed the reds and pinks of roses play a particularly significant symbolic role in the show, representing the love and passion between Zark and Lia – the only characters dressed predominantly in red.  I know crazy hey!  There truly is a deeper meaning behind everything.

ARIA Resort & Casino is the perfect setting for this one of a kind show.  You'll be on the edge of your seat with this entertaining show that takes you into the lives of the circus performers!  I believe any seat in the audience is a good seat.  If you sit in a lower section the seats are like couches and more comfortable but the view is all the same!

Show Schedule:

• Zarkana performs Friday through Tuesday at 7:00pm and 9:30pm.
• There are no performances on Wednesdays or Thursdays.

Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas is a must see if you're in the mood for a fun night out!
