I saw this show twice back in the late '90s and was excited to take my husband to see it for his first time. Located in the Treasure Island Hotel on the strip, this show has been a Vegas highlight since it opened in 1993. The backgrounds, the costumes, the performers are just amazing! While the audience is still entering the theater, a "clown" is entertaining folks during the wait for the show to start. He takes popcorn, leads people to the wrong seats, and just basically entertains the crowd. You will see him throughout the show as he continues his antics while the performers change costumes for the next set. The show itself combines beautiful dancing, amazing acrobatics, and colorful costumes. I found the music to be like ear candy. The singer that stands stage left had the most beautiful voice as she sings most of the songs during the performances. During the show, we were awed with amazing feats of strength, graceful acrobatics, all blended with colors and beauty. On some of the more silly acts, usually done between sets, the clown and baby will engage the audience members. Keep that in mind if you decide to sit closer to the stage!Tickets were reasonable priced compared to some of the more expensive Cirque shows such as "O" and Love. Tickets range from $104.50-$66 with discounts for Military members and children under 12. We choose the e-ticket option which is an extra $2.50 per ticket but you can print them off from home before you leave on your trip and avoid the lines for purchasing seats at the box office. Show times are 7pm and 9:30pm with blackout days on Thursday and Friday. I can honestly say, I do not think there is a bad seat in the house! We sat in section 203 and had an unobstructed view of everything.I recommend arriving at least a half hour prior to show time as the line to enter can get quite long. It does move quickly however. Once inside, you can purchase popcorn, bottled water, and drinks. I found them to be a bit expensive though with one of the 8 oz. bottled water costing $2.50 a piece.Cameras and video recording are not allowed during the show for the safety of the performers. However, we were permitted to take pictures before and after the show. The gift shop located at the line entrance has programs, shirts, and CDs if you would like to purchase a memorable souvenir of your visit.I would recommend this show for couples, families, friends, and just about anyone. You will be amazed at the beauty, the grace, and the human strength you won't find anywhere else! Enjoy!
