After its run, the Cirque du Soleil Viva Elvis has left the building to Zarkana, an altogether darker, modern ‘acrobatic rock opera’ that gives its audience something to think about until it inevitably pulls them back for more.
For those of who can’t picture Vegas without its king, spend just ten minutes under the Zarkana spell and we promise that you will forget all about hound dogs and jailhouse rocks. This twisted and arabesque tale has met with over one million audience members to rave reviews, and now—finally—it is Las Vegas's turn. Whether this is your first or fiftieth time at a Cirque du Soleil performance, Zarkana will leave all of your expectations behind.
Following the strange quest of a magician out to reclaim his powers and lost love amidst the truly bizarre, Zarkana takes on a completely different atmosphere than any of its predecessors. Instead of bright colors and lighting, Zarkana examines the dark and strange. From costumes and sets to lighting, Zarkana takes its audience deeper into a realm rarely explored on stage—the spectacle resembles a twisted Phantom or Shakespeare more than a Cirque du Soleil. And as if the plot of estranged lovers caught in a dark wonderland isn't enough, let's not forget what really makes Cirque du Soleil tick. The amazing stunts and acrobatics do not disappoint in Zarkana; at any given point you are positive that someone will go plummeting to their death only to be caught seconds before hitting the floor. Each exploit is made even more hair-raising thanks to the dark hues and uncanny music written by Elton John's protégé, Nick Littlemore.
Surrealism has certainly taken over at the Aria, which is proving to be the perfect venue for Zarkana, thanks to its sense of intimacy and grandeur. Zarkana is guaranteed to transport you to a higher level of fantastic acrobatics and entertainment. The lowest priced tickets are available by clicking the link under "Compare Ticket Price" above.
