Whenever I visit Las Vegas, I take in a show of some kind—Vegas, after all, is full of incredible world class entertainment. One of my favorite to-dos is to see a Cirque du Soleil performance and, on my recent summer getaway, I had a chance to see Zumanity.
Every single time I see a Cirque du Soleil performance, I am mesmerized and in awe of the absolutely breathtaking capabilities of these bodies in motion. Cirque performers have to be some of the most fit, most graceful beings to walk the earth. I catch my breath while performers twirl in aerial acts. My pulse quickens when I witness gravity defying feats executed so skillfully and with such delicate grace, I can barely believe what I’m seeing. But believe it. Cirque du Soleil is like no other show you’ll see and I highly recommend introducing yourself to their remarkable productions.
Zumanity is a high energy show full of sensuality, seduction, and imagination. There’s a nice dose of comedy mixed in to keep audiences on their toes—which, if you’re seated in some of the front rows, prepare to be engaged with performers as they mingle with the crowd. On stage, you’ll be glued to the incredible artistry unfolding before you.
From seemingly impossible acrobatics to aerial artistry, Zumanity is busting with energy, sensuality, and grace. The ‘water bowl’ act blends innocence with balancing acts unlike anything I’ve ever seen. An athletic aerial performer balances on chains. A whole cast of characters unleash and unwind in the air, on stage, in water, and in out of this world maneuvers you’ll only see in a Cirque du Soleil production.
You’ll want to leave inhibitions behind, and note this show is for a mature audience with an open mind, as wardrobes and performances have a naughty edge perfect for a sizzling summer date. If you’re traveling with family and want to catch a show, I suggest O at Bellagio or KÀ at MGM Grand as these are family-friendly and will offer the wow factor you expect from a Cirque du Soleil performance.
Summer promotions with Cirque du Soleil include Las Vegas ticket deals starting at $49, available for purchase through August 31 and valid on performances until the end of this year. There are seven resident shows in Las Vegas, including The Beatles™ LOVE™ at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, O at Bellagio Resort & Casino, and Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.
