The Cirque du Soleil has a reputation for being one of the most outstanding acrobatic shows in the world and Las Vegas is THE place to go to see a variety of them. So of course we had to make time to see the latest show, Zarkana, playing at the Aria.
Let me tell you honestly, Zarkana does NOT disappoint. I have seen only one other Cirque du Soleil show in the past and this was just as spectacular.
I found myself mesmerized from the very start of the show and when it was over, I couldn’t believe how fast the time had flown by as I was 100% engaged the whole time. Never once did I get bored and look at my watch!
The story… well, I will be honest, I always lose the story and just immerse myself in the display of talents! It really is sort of a misfit circus with a unique ringmaster leading a fantastic group of characters in a spectacular show brought back to life.
While all the acts were incredible from the ladder duo, juggling, high wire and more… The one I really was blown away by was the Sand Art Display. Set to music, the artist whips her hands around through the sand creating and erasing incredible art in black and white sand. Absolutely beautiful.
If you have the chance and are debating which Cirque du Soleil show to attend, I highly recommend this show if you are a fan of fantastic acrobatics and the Circus. You will NOT be disappointed!
