    I know Zarkana just opened but has anyone seen the show yet? Would be interested in a review. I'm going in December.

    I saw it last Thursday night. Lots of Cirque type stuff instead of dance and pre show clowns. If you like acrobatic stuff, you will like it.

    I'm taking some Vegas newbies and neophytes with me in a week, any opinion about whether this show would be preferable to Mystere for folks who haven't ever seen a Cirq show?!

    Even though MYSTERE is my favorite/1st CIRQUE Show (i do love 'em all...)
    ZARKANA looks to be an over the top, visual treat for the eyes and it's just
    not the acrobats...it's the sets, the LED visuals...it looks quite outstanding.

    I'll see it next Thursday and have already booked a second viewing in Feb.

    Don't sit too close...Like most CIRQUE Shows, an UPPER REAR seat should
    provide the best experience.

    I suggest the BACK of center SEC. 103 or FRONT of center SEC. 203.
    Obviously other sections work great too (102,104,202,204) but try to stay
    as center as possible and again...don't sit too close.

    A first has happen. I saw a show before Gregrio!!! Yes we did sit too close but we were there. I still liked Love and Zumanity better though and I have seen all of them in Vegas. Hope to see Michael Jackson next year.

    You can't go wrong with MYSTERE!
    (it's also the most affordable CIRQUE Show in town)

    I suggest an UPPER REAR seat.
    SEC. 203 is center, 204 and 202 left 'n right of that.
    Sit as centered as possible.

    Avoid the 1st Row AA, there 'can' be stair handrail in your view.
    For a larger group, sit ROW DD,EE,FF.

    Mystere is my favorite Cirque show of all time, so I'm really looking forward to Zarkana to compare.

    I saw Zarkana two years ago at Radio City Music Hall in NYC and liked it a lot.

    I think Mystere is the best bet for someone who has never seen a Cirque show. My favourite is Ka but some peeps do not like it and I can't understand that but everyone seems to like Mystere. I have seen Mystere three times and it never gets old.

    Zarkana was so visual at Radio City. But, they have this HUGE stage. I wonder how it translates to a smaller venue.

    I bought my ticket last night for it. Going to see it on Dec 17th. Sitting in section 302 row V dead centre. A little further back that I would have liked but I'm hoping it's not going to be a problem. Can't wait to see it.

    I saw it Sunday night and really enjoyed the show.
    It reminded me of Mystere in terms of the acts and production .
    I have seen Mystere 4 times so it is still my favorite.
    My host left tickets at the box office and I did not know where I would be seated prior to arrival.
    My seats were 9 rows from the stage middle of center section.It was definitely not too close as the slope of the theater seating is fairly significant and I was not looking up.
