I had recently watched the KÀ at MGM Grand and Le Rêve at Wynn in Las Vegas. So touched by both performances and artists’ devotions to art and the theatre.
KÀ is the name of a village and the word refers to “gatekeepers”. The show’s floating stage sets it an unconventional Cirque du Soleil. On top of its striking stage designs and stunning lighting effects, the play is a pantomime full of adventures. Not to mention those spectacular costumes and fascinating makeup, you really have to see it on your own because there’s no right word to describe that sensational feeling of watching some of the world’s best acrobats giving their passionate performances, goose bumps were all over me when the show ended.
Here’s a link to the KÀ’s teaser video and more:
Le Rêve means “the dream” in French and the stage is mesmerizing with the set up of a colorful wonderland. It features captivating acrobats dancing beautifully in water and in the air! No seat is further than 40 feet away from the round stage so every audience gets a close look to the performance. I heard Le Rêve is technically not a Cirque du Soleil, but whether it is or not, in my opinion it’s just a show you can’t miss. My only recommendation is not to go for the VIP seats even though they include complimentary champagnes, chocolate dipped strawberries and chocolate truffles, they are simply not the best seats in the house. Depending on how much you want to get “wet” from the splashes, I think the seats with best views might be somewhere between the 4th and 7th row.
Some additional Cirque du Soleil inspirations:

I Think Slow Cooks Have the Most Amazing Aroma!
This was from a pot of Slow Braised Lamb Shoulders. The broth was extra sweet with brussels sprouts.
Macaroni with Slow Cooked Beef Ribs in A Red Wine and Rosemary Soup. The fragrant was so mouthwatering.
Pork Ribs were slow braised for 5 hours, all the meat just fell off bones. So tender and juicy over rigatoni with a touch of cream.
Mexican Style Beef Stew. Special ingredients included all kinds of sweet peppers, cumin and cinnamon. Sharp cheddar and cilantro were great finishing touches.
More Beef please!
