After more than a year off stage, Cirque du Soleil will reopen "Mystere" at Treasure Island (TI) and "O" at the Bellagio this summer in Las Vegas.
"Mystere," Cirque's original Vegas production that opened in 1993, will return on June 28 with shows at 7 p.m. Fridays through Tuesdays with additional 9:30 p.m. shows Fridays and Saturdays.
"O" will resume July 1, with the curtain going up at 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays with additional 9:30 p.m. shows Fridays and Saturdays.
The Cirque-affiliated Blue Man Group will return to the Luxor on June 24, with performances at 5 and 8 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays.
"This is the moment we have all been waiting for," said Daniel Lamarre, president and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. "Almost 400 days have passed since we had to take a temporary hiatus, and we have been anxiously awaiting our return to the stage. I am so proud of the resilience of our artists and employees who persevered during the most challenging times, with stages dark around the world for so long. I just can't wait to see the lights go back on."
Although no reopening dates have been announced for other Cirque shows in Las Vegas, Lamare told the Las Vegas Sun that he anticipates those will resume later this year, with ticket demand determining which shows will return first.
He sketched a loose schedule: "The Beatles Love" (Mirage) in July, "Michael Jackson One" (Mandalay Bay) in late August and "KA" (MGM Grand) in September or October. Cirque previously announced that "Zumanity" (New York-New York) will not reopen.
