- Cirque du Soleil, the creators of original powerhouse shows including Mystere, Zumanity, O and Varekai have unleashed their newest performance, KA. This visual spectacular combines martial arts, acrobatics, shadow puppetry, and indoor fireworks to tell the saga of Imperial Twins who embark on an adventurous journey. KA, or, "fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate." The venue is the KA Theatre at MGM Grand, and is in the former showroom that housed EFX. The design of the theater ensures that everyone has the best seat in the house. State-of-the-art acoustics provide dreamlike surround sound, with special speakers embedded in each of the ultra cozy and comfy seats. The audience sits facing an apparently bottomless void filled with smoke. Above, around and inside the void the artists make their entrances, perform and exit without touching a traditional stage. Instead, they fly through the air or perform on one of two moving platforms. While the storyline is a little convoluted, the visual and audio aspects make this a fun show for all ages. Cirque du Soleil is one of the most recognizable entertainment brands in the world. Any production is guaranteed to deliver thrills and chills like nothing else you will ever see. With KA, Cirque du Soleil not only extends its brand, but enriches the whole Cirque experience. At a brisk 90 minutes, this show is just the ticket for your visit to Las Vegas and it's close to everything on the Strip in the MGM Grand. KA will give you a heart-stopping jolt without having to drop your bankroll! In 2004 alone nearly seven million people attended a Cirque du Soleil performance. That many satisfied customers can't be wrong! Performances: F-Tu 7:30p & 10:30p Tickets: $99, $125 & $150.
