There are eight Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas shows playing in 2015. This acrobatic show must be experienced at least once in your life - there is nothing like it in the entire world. If you have seen Cirque in your city before - in Vegas these shows are better - mostly because they play in theaters specifically adapted for each show. They are presented on larger stages than the traveling circus, and have more strength and grandeur. 7 of them are family-friendly, with an age limit of 5+, and 1 - Zumanity - is strictly for grown-ups! If you ask me which is the best Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas show - Michael Jackson ONE is surely winning right now.

Review : Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas is a tribute to the king of pop music. The show found its permanent home at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Michael Jackson ONE features the adventures of 4 misfit characters. Throughout the show, the misfit group undergoes complete transformation and realize the truth behind the message in all Michael Jackson's songs: that everybody is equal and unique. The show is inspired by the timeless music, spirit and dance moves created by Michael Jackson. ONE casts a different spin on the iconic songs of the King of Pop, by mixing them with unmatched acrobatic acts and visual effects. A night of dance, acrobatics and great music - ONE is surely becoming one of the best and most unique shows on Las Vegas Strip!

Review : Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas O playing in 2015 is all about water! Instead of a stage, there is a huge water tank, around, inside, and above it acrobats, gymnasts and world-class synchronized swimmers demonstrate their artistic excellence underwater and above water. The show goes on a large scale, so that sometimes you do not know where to look because something fascinating if going on in several focal points. Along with Mystere, O offers an extremely pleasing visual experience excitement. A Great example of what they can do!

Review : Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas is a story of a magician who has lost the love of his life as well as his magic powers. The story of the magician looking for his love and his magic takes place in an abandoned theater that serves as a gateway to the world inhabited by phantasmagorical creatures. Many say that the highlight of the show a sand artist!
Location: Mystere Theatre - Treasure Island;
Show Times: Saturday-Wednesday at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm; black out Thursdays and Fridays
Review : Among all Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas shows, Mystere is the most affordable, and would be my top pick for a family vacation. This show immerses you into a fantasy world full of mysteries and mythical creatures, suggesting that life is a puzzle, or a mystery. Watching Mystere is like entering a wonderful colorful dream! The show uses a total of 72 acrobats, dancers, singers and clowns, who will definitely exceed your expectations!
Location: MGM Grand;
Show Times: Tuesday-Saturday at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm; black out Sundays and Mondays
Review : Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas Ka is an imaginative fairy tale inspired by Asian folklore. It tells a story of twin heroic brother and sister who are separated. Before they can reunite, they are sent on dangerous journeys and trials and must meet their destiny. Along the way, brother and sister meet various characters representing good and evil forces, including Ka - the fire with a dual power. Apart from familiar acrobatics, the show features incredibly beautifully orchestrated battles. Instead of a stage, the show uses 2 large and 5 small platforms that can be rotated and tilted in many directions. At some point, you will be able to see spectacular fights in a vertical position! Of all Cirque du Soleil, Ka is the only one with a clearly defined story that makes you actually want to know what will happen in the end. It's a great show for those who enjoy battles, but if you are more into dance, you would probably have to see Michael Jackson One.
Location: Love Theatre - Mirage Resort & Casino;
Show Times: Thursday-Monday at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm; black out Tuesdays and Wednesdays
Insider's Access to The Beatles: Love
Review : Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas Love offers a huge and extravagant spectacle. The show offers complex video effects, fantastic costumes and props and a great cast of dancers, gymnasts and acrobats. In this show, characters from the popular songs of the Beatles come to life, as they are interpreted by the cast members on a moving platform. Absolute must for fans of The Beatles, but it's not the best representative of what Cirque is capable of - we are still fans of Mystere and O!
Location: Zumanity Theater - New York - New York Hotel & Casino;
Show Times: Friday-Tuesday at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm; black out Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Age limit: 18+
Review : Zumanity is a naughty, erotic, energetic, provocative and funny show, an absolute must-see adult show in Vegas! Beautiful bodies of gymnasts dancing to exotic rhythms offer an adult adventure and exploration of some "taboo" sides of sexuality. Zumanity is a burlesque type of show rather than acrobatics that one would expect from Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas in 2015. But it offers an unforgettable fun evening with your loved ones, and might even help you get rid of some of your inhibitions and discover the naughty side of yourself.
Location: Luxor Theater - Luxor Hotel;
Show Times: Wednesday-Saturday at 7:00 pm and some days on 9:30 pm; Black out Mondays and Tuesdays, occasional Sundays
Review : Believe is a collaborative effort between Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas. Criss Angel is an illusionist famous worldwide, and one of must-see magic shows in Vegas. Although it's marketed as Cirque du Soleil show, it has a lot more to do with magic and illusions. Criss Angel has a great charisma, and talks to the audience a lot during his show. His illusions are really impressive, the show is dynamic and entertaining.
