    Planning for our upcoming trip in October and planning to use My Vegas rewards for a show. Narrowed it down to Ka or Zarkana. Which one would you recommend. We have only seen Mystere and enjoyed that Cirque show. Thanks for any advice.

    I've seen KA 4 times and Zarkana twice. My preference is KA because of the rotating stage, I think that's something you won't at any other show.

    I've seen both and of the two, I would choose Zarkana. More action, cooler acrobatics, better music.

    KA - the stage and props combined with the choreography are outstanding. It and LOVE are my favorite Cirque shows.

    If you want story based, see KA.

    If you want act based, see Zarkana.

    I have see both, and both of them in both forms.

    Ka' before and after the battle scene.

    Zarkana before and after the restaging.

    A big ditto on the moving stage in Ka'

    I don't know about you, but I thought Zarkana after restaging wasn't as good. I'm going to be seeing it again next month, so maybe my opinion will change again.

    I have seen KA once and Zarkana twice. I really did not care for KA. I was bored. Liked the diversity and pace of Zarkana.

    Thanks for the input. I think we will pay to see Love and trying to pick between the other two. Good to know you liked Love and Ka.

    I saw Zarkana about 6 months ago when we had buy one get one free tix I had heard terrible things about it and therefore I wasn't expecting much. I really enjoyed it. they have a super good Ginger drink at the bar, that may have been part of it. I also was board in KA, but we went shortly after the big tragedy, so it felt like they had cut out something and hadn't replaced that scene yet.

    Only saw Ka. It was awesome but don't be close. We were second row and it was way too close! I think like any cirque a bit back is good!

    For me I found the music in Ka to be one of its main strengths (have seen both), so much so that I purchased the soundtrack on the way out :rolleyes2:
