All You Need Is Love


Wow. I just returned from the 10 p.m. show of Love, the Beatles-themed Cirque Du Soleil presentation here at The Mirage. This was my first Cirque performance and Love was a big part of my reason for coming to Vegas. I was not disappointed. The music was amazing: over 2000 speakers created a lush soundscape in the custom-designed theater, using Beatles master tapes prepared especially by George Martin and his son. And the show itself was a visual spectacle incorporating dance, acrobatics, aerial wire work, costumes, make-up, masks, props, video screens, animation, projections, lighting, sets, and very impressive gymnastic stunts of all sorts. The stage constantly shifted on hydraulics to accommodate different set-ups between and within songs. The athleticism of the performers and imagination of the designers were great fits for some of the best of the Fab Four's music. An amazing 90 minutes. Highly recommended.
