Las Vegas announces dates for first-ever Cirque du Soleil week

Are you crazy about Cirque du Soleil? If so, this is just the experience for you. For the first time ever, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is sponsoring “Cirque Week,” a convention that will offer guests special behind-the-scenes access into some of the world’s most complex theater productions. From November 29 through December 5, 2010, guests will get to see what brings Las Vegas’ seven Cirque du Soleil shows to life every night.

For $160, guests can enjoy a two-show package, and mere $450 gives access to all seven shows.

Choose to experience a custom theater technology demonstration and Q&A at LOVE Theatre at the Mirage, a state-of-the-art sound demonstration through over 6,300 custom-made speakers, go behind the scenes at Zumanity to watch an exclusive dress rehearsal on stage and take part in a Q&A session with cast and crew, or relax in Gold Lounge at ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter as the Viva ELVIS musicians serenade you with an acoustic performance and explain what it was like to re-imagine music from one of the most notable entertainers of all time, Elvis Presley.

Or perhaps you’d like to meet Criss Angel following the show, watch a technical presentation to learn how KA is put together, or enjoy a special Q&A with the coaches for the cast of “O” at the Bellagio.

Plus, all guests will get an intimate look into what goes into making a Cirque du Soleil production from the people who work behind-the-scenes. Sounds pretty awesome, right?
