    Just saw a clip of the newest Cirque show that is currently at Radio City Music Hall in NY but coming to Aria in November....unbelieveable!! Hubby had to play the clip back several times trying to figure out how they did the things they did. Should be a big hit. Hope to see reviews on here during the winter...would love to see it on our trip in the Spring. WOW is all we could mutter.... LOL

    Yeah, ZARKANA looks pretty good. I've watched some clips too and was
    a bit disappointed that many of the routines are...nothing we haven't seen
    before in other Cirque Shows...it's just the way ZARKANA presents them that
    caught my eye. The stage sets, lighting and use of video makes even old
    routines stand out and look new again.

    I'll see a preview Show to start with...Nov.1st, $148.55. 'Todays' advertised
    prices range from $69. to $198. I would also expect those to be the preview
    prices. The premier will be sometime early December I would guess along
    with the 'real' ticket prices.

    I'm so excited for this show, too! Finally a return to acrobatic CdS instead of the LOVE, Believe, Elvis baloney. Yay!

    i just planned my next trip for Veterans Day weekend and remembered that this show will have just opened. we've seen all the Cirque shows in Vegas (except Criss Angel of course) and are really excited to get to see a new one. i guess it will be a "preview" show, so they'll be working out the kinks, but hopefully it will be everything that it looks like it will be.

    Ya might 'sarah9nascar'...
    I'll be in SEC.202, ROW M, SEAT 11. Even though this isn't the 'real' opening night,
    it will still be full of excitement and fun. Remember, this thing has been up 'n running
    at Radio City for a couple years now. Save for a new theater, the routines should be
    pretty tight. It will just be a matter of the cast getting used to a new showroom...they're
    all a bit different and take some getting used to....IT'LL BE VERY COOL I'M SURE.
    Send me a PM closer to November and we'll see if we can line up a mini meet in the lobby
    before ZARKANA...that would be fun.

    I will do that GregRio. I will have to look up and see where my tickets are. I bought them the day they came out and don't remember now where we are sitting. Can't wait to finally meet you.

    Stay in touch and I'm sure we'll be able to work something
    out. If you haven't already, check out some videos on their
    website www.zarkana.com and YouTube.
