Cirque du Soleil, Las Vegas
Described as "the other side of Cirque du Soleil", I was unsure what to expect of this one. There is some nudity but the show is tasteful and pretty tame. Its actually pretty humorous too. The Cirque performers are great as well. I think you have to be 18 and over to get in, but they may allow people younger if accompanied by an adult.
Its worth seeing, but if you can only see one show, get tickets to "O".
Address: New York New York Hotel and Casino
Wow, Wow, Wow....folks, that's probably the best way to describe this show. Totally awe-inspiring and it starts off with a clown leading unknowing ticket holders around the entire facility in a fruitless search for their seats. Let's just say that there is a fair amount of audience participation. It is performance art without boundaries. Ballet without gravity. It is theatre without actors.
It is Mystère, the surrealistic celebration of music, dance, acrobatics and comedy. Mystère features specialty performances including the hilarious clown, the incredible Aerial Cube act, the awe-inspiring Hand-to-Hand act, the graceful Bungee artists who perform an aerial ballet high above the audience and a high-flying group of amazing acrobats who perform a breathtaking Aerial High Bar act.
Dress Code: I guess it depends, you have informal to business casual to suits and evening gowns.
Address: 3300 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Directions: The Mystère Theatre is located at the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino.

'O' by CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - Live entertainment at its very best. 'O' is French word for water (spelled 'Eau'). Directed by Franco Dragone, who has directed 6 other Cirque du Soleil's productions, 'O' uses water - lots of it - as much as 1.5 million gallons - as its stage. Featuring 74 excellent acrobats from around the world the show is incredible!
Watch out for the high-tech stage which can drain the reservoir of water from the stage in less than 7 minutes! Great backdrops and stage designs. I wonder how much it costs?
An elegant world-class production. Love the songs (performed live) from this show.
IMHO, this is the best of all Cirque du Soleil's performances. I've watched 'Mystere', 'Saltimbanco', 'Alegria' & 'Dralion'. 'O' is the most unique (in terms of stage-setting, music & costumes) & expensive of them all.
Dress Code: Formal.
Directions: At the O Theater in BELLAGIO.
We had reports that most of the shows were well worth seeing. But they are not cheap. The more popular the show, the higher the price. Most people agreed that the Cirque du Soleil was the best show but you pays your money and you takes the chance.
Very colourful noisy 'in your face' shows
Dress Code: you can dress up if you wish but it is not necessary. You certainly get better service if you are reasonably smart.
