The wizards at Cirque Du Soleil have conjured up another magical smash hit with Zarkana, a visually stunning, magical, and mysterious circus playing in the beautiful Zarkana Theater in Aria at CityCenter.
The show is a unique blend of rock n’ roll music, circus arts, and surreal, mysterious storytelling featuring a cast of unforgettable characters. Audiences watch in astonishment as a resurrected circus troupe guides them through a mystical journey in an abandoned theater that slowly comes back to vivid life over the course of the breathtaking ninety minute show.
The memorable cast of characters evoke 1920s- 30s era Coney Island Circus performers, while the show’s costumes and sets are heavily inspired by art deco design. Memorable characters include the equally menacing and mysterious Mutants, fish-like alien Jovians, and the Tarantula-esque Spider-Lady. The motley cast brings old eras of entertainment back to life with modern takes on old-school Circus acts, choreographed dances, and balletic aerial acrobatics. Visually sumptuous elements include performers flying through the air with glowing umbrellas, a massive spider web, a giant High-Definition video screen, and a 90×40 foot, three million pixel LED light wall.
Zarkana at Aria is a wildly creative show that resurrects a forgotten era of entertainment in a modern, mysterious, surreal, and visually stunning show featuring a magical cast of characters and an engaging story. It’s the kind of uniquely unforgettable entertainment spectacle that could have only been conjured up by the magicians of Cirque Du Soleil.
