Cirque du Soleil - Zarkana Tickets
Cirque Du Soleil Zarkana
Cirque du Soleil’s Zarkana has had a bizarre journey, being forced to take up residence in the Radio City Music Hall in New York because it proved the only venue in the city capable of holding its stage. Then it went around the world to Moscow, and now it has come back to the United States to familiar territory for a Cirque production, Las Vegas. Cirque du Soleil Zarkana tickets debut for a residence at the Aria Resort and Casino in 2012, taking over for the departing Viva Elvis.
Equally bizarre and moving is the incredible inspiration for the story. A combination of the words “bizarre” and “arcana”, Cirque’s Zarkana follows Zark on his journey through an abandoned theater on a quest to regain power now lost and bring back his assistant, whom he loved dearly before her demise. This is a theater inhabited by many an intriguing creature. There are strong men performing incredible feats, acrobats spinning around the stage in oversized hula-hoops, and great mutated creatures coming to life and reaching great heights.
The show requires an incredible singer to portray Zark as well as talented contortionists, strong men, and acrobats. He must contend with the attention the incredible stage draws. Three massive hand sculpted arches dominate and play a powerful symbolic role during the trek. The entire set is designed as inspired by the Art Nouveau movement and the acts have actually been chosen to accent the set, not the opposite.
In the end Zarkana takes Zark to a mad scientist where his fate and his great love’s fate is determined (oh there are aliens too!). The show has earned rave reviews on tour, astounding critics in New York, Moscow, and Madrid. It arrives in Vegas and opens on November 1, 2012, though given its set and its odd but immensely entertaining performances it would seem much more appropriate for an opening Halloween night. However, Cirque Zarkana tickets come a days later, and this production will play twice nightly with 90 minute shows each performance.
