Cirque du Soleil and the Michael Jackson Estate's tribute to the King of Pop is a visually super-charged journey through inspiration and self-discovery. The plot -- four friends' good-versus-evil quest for solidarity and self-belief -- is a backdrop for weighty motifs that touch on civil rights, sexuality and loneliness en route to a message about world unity.Each of four main characters receive an object from Michael -- the show's narrator and spirit guide -- and develop as individuals as they take on their mentor's qualities. First, Clumsy is given Michael's shoes, and with his newfound balance, performs a double slackline act to "Bad." Next, Shy overcomes her name when she receives Michael’s glasses, and she vanquishes a troupe of warriors in a martial arts display set to "2000 Watts" and "Jam." Then, Smarty Pants, the de facto leader of the four, puts on Michael's hat and is imbued with the artist's legendary gracefulness in "Smile." Finally, Sneaky, the troublemaker, performs a playful manipulation act with the rogue glove to "This Place Hotel" and "Working Day & Night."The objects become talismans that lead the four to understand that they were brought together by their love of Michael and are meant to carry on his vision of joy, peace and kindness.Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil is appropriately dance-driven. A phantom-like character who doesn’t exactly represent Michael but does embody his spirit moves fluidly around the stage, displaying the artist's signature grace and flair.Most of cast moves with sharper edges, in an urban-inspired dance style that emphasizes quick shifts between fast and slow. The style is achieved most impressively in a dance and tumbling act set to "Smooth Criminal." Mephisto's elite force of villains, dressed in flaring trench coats, bound and flip across the stage in unison. In the air, they appear to move slower than natural, but once they hit the floor, they spring into double-time.In a singularly beautiful scene played out to "Planet Earth" and "Earth Song," dancers move behind a translucent veil to cast interacting shadows. The artists manipulate the sizes of their shadows by placing themselves at varying distances behind the veil, and they play with illusion as they bend their forms to create images of plants and animals.Michael Jackson ONE portrays Jackson as spirited, hopeful and, above all, magical. After the heroes are united by their love for him, Michael's spirit descends onto the stage and dances in dazzling illusions, in a miraculous moment set to "Man in the Mirror."The heroes are challenged throughout the production by Mephisto – an antagonist made of radios, microphones, tungsten bulbs, televisions, cameras and surveillance equipment. The image bitterly pokes fun at the paparazzi and media muckrakers that plagued Jackson throughout his life.But light and darkness become one at the close of the show, and the audience is left with a final message from Michael: "We're putting love back into the world. To remind the world that love is important. To love each other. We are one."

Blending glamour and modern luxury, The Cosmopolitan is, without a doubt, the most chic and stylish resort on the Strip. It boasts a guest experience that interlaces ultra comfortable accommodations with trendsetting restaurants and shops, hot music and nightspots, striking visual art and cool technology.Making its fashionable debut at the end of 2010, the 2,995-room, über-classy property, which sits on the corner of Harmon Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard, is likely to be the last major casino resort to open on the Strip for the foreseeable future. Consisting of two elegant New York-style towers, its architecture provides a refreshing change from the city's many themed resortsWith eight dynamic columns wrapped in mirrors and video screens, the lobby even doubles as a trendy ultra lounge -- and the Vesper Bar, named for the fictional martini loved by secret agent James Bond, is just steps away. Once you enter The Cosmopolitan's vibrant world, you can gamble, shop, wine and dine, be entertained or simply relax – whatever you envision for your perfect vacation.Of course, the most important thing to hipsters is the nightlife -- and it's here in spades. Set beneath a stunning curtain of crystal beads, The Chandelier is the centerpiece featuring three stories of unique bar environments: a classic cocktail nook on top, a lounge setting in the middle and a high-energy social scene at the bottom.In addition, partiers will adore Marquee Nightclub, where DJs are always pumping today's top sounds. Surrounded by four-story LED screens, the dance floor will wow you. Plus, during the spring and summer months, guests can enjoy the Marquee Dayclub experience, which is filled with poolside debauchery. The Cosmopolitan also has a social club called Rose.Rabbit.Lie., which is part restaurant, part bar and part club. Gourmands are sure to savor the diverse dining opportunities helmed by culinary stars from around the world. Signature restaurants include STK, a flirty take on a steakhouse by chef Stephen Hopcraft, and Scarpetta, which serves a regional Italian menu evoking the simplicity of "cucina rustica" (a rustic kitchen) by chef Scott Conant. Eateries like Jaleo by food mastermind José Andrés and the Mediterranean-themed Estiatorio Milos by restaurateur Costas Spiliadis are changing the face of fine dining in Las Vegas. Plus, chef David Myers' modern French brasserie Comme Ça is très bien!On the casual end, several restaurants at The Cosmopolitan dish out simpler cuisine -- prepared with the freshest ingredients. Holsteins knows how to grill up great burgers, and the Wicked Spoon brunch/buffet specializes in a variety of American comfort foods. There's even a secret pizza window where you can grab a New York-style slice and a Coke on the run.In the evenings the resort plays host to some of the world’s top musicians. A stellar entertainment lineup can be found taking the stage inside The Chelsea (like Grammy Award-winning recording artist Bruno Mars, who will perform for select dates through August 2014) or outside by the Boulevard Pool. Performances are often broadcast live to passersby on The Cosmopolitan's 65-foot-tall LED-display marquee. The funky lounges Book & Stage and Bond regularly host free concerts or live DJs as well.There is a collection of stores at The Cosmopolitan that create an urban boutique shopping experience. From AllSaints Spitalfields and Stitched to the CRSVR Sneaker Boutique, you'll discover an array of exclusive apparel and other merchandise for men and women. And stop by P3 Studio, a glass-walled space that features contemporary artists from around the world who create interactive artwork as part of a residency programThe guest rooms at The Cosmopolitan offer unparalleled comfort, breathtaking views from oversized private terraces and thoughtful amenities, like a kitchenette with a microwave and a Sub-Zero minibar stocked with unexpected treats.The high-rise hotel also features an expansive casino, the mystical Sahra Spa & Hammam and a progressive arts program.With plenty of chances for fun and relaxation, as well as for indulging your palate, being pampered, partying and spotting stars, The Cosmopolitan is the place to be in Las Vegas.-- By Renée LiButti

Even if you get covered in popcorn, you won't want to stop the clown from posing as an usher and engaging in some pre-show debauchery with the crowd. With his black suit and disheveled gray hair, he has no problem amusing people. The clown is zany, mischievous and your first exposure to the unknown at Mystère by Cirque du Soleil at Treasure Island. What's ahead is a wondrous world of mystifying creatures who perform a series of incredible acrobatic and gymnastic feats.When Mystère opened in 1993, the show was the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas. Emphasizing awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, it embraces all of the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production company a mainstay on the Las Vegas Strip.From rebirth to the pursuit of happiness, each of the characters and acts in Mystère symbolizes something different. They combine to create an overall theme for the show as a celebration of the circle of life. Some audience members may interpret each act as an allegory, but with the innovative costumes and performances, realizing those themes isn't necessary for enjoying this show.What makes Mystère so endearing is that many of the performances are typical circus-style acts like the flying trapeze, an aerialist and the teeterboard, an acrobatic tool where a person jumps on one end of what looks like a seesaw and the person on the other end is launched into the air. However, in Mystère, the boundaries of those disciplines are pushed, creating fantastical routines that you won't see in any other production.For instance, in the hand-to-hand routine, two muscular men demonstrate a series of gravity-defying poses and their incredible strength, but they don't even perform on a flat surface. In Mystère, the men do this while balancing on a rotating dome, adding to the awesomeness of their routine.The Tissu act is another example. In this routine a female aerialist performs while suspending herself with two pieces of fabric hanging from the ceiling. This type of act can be seen in other shows on the Strip, but in Mystère the performer combines contortion, acrobatics and movement in her routine, creating optical illusions that defy imagination.Music played by live musicians and singers drives the show. Mixing elements of everything from rock to Celtic, African and soul music, the soundtrack is just as mysterious as the action on stage.Along with awe-inspiring moments, Mystère offers a hearty does of comedy brought on by the clown "usher" and an adult-sized baby. They appear on stage throughout the show. The clown and baby don’t tell jokes, but their wacky antics and interactions with the audience make people laugh. It's hard not to chuckle when you see a man on stage wearing a diaper and a bonnet.When the comedy segments come to a close, the show quickly changes pace. Once again the audience is sitting in amazement at another thrilling routine. One of these is the Chinese Poles. For this act a group of gymnasts perform on four vertical poles. They crawl, jump and flip up, down and across the poles. Their masks add to the implausibility of their performance. While their bodies face away from the audience, their masks are looking right at them. It seems impossible, but then again, this is Mystère.-- By Caroline Fontein

The epitome of quality, romance and elegance on the Las Vegas Strip, the Bellagio offers luxurious rooms, gourmet restaurants and upscale shopping along with a healthy dose of cultural enlightenment.From the moment one passes the tree-lined pathway and eight-acre lake in front of the hotel, it's clear that the Bellagio pays impeccable attention to detail. The Fountains of Bellagio are world famous, amazing onlookers as they soar into the sky. Recently, three new shows were added to its collection of 32, with the debut of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean," The Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and Glenn Miller's "In the Mood."A vibrant flower petal chandelier by glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, called Fiori di Como, hangs above the lobby like a garden growing from the 18-foot ceiling. The front desk is bordered by a thriving display of foliage, which often coincides with the seasonal display of fresh flowers and trees at the glass-topped Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. A horticulture staff of 120 maintains the beloved attraction, which boasts an entirely different presentation for each of the four seasons and Chinese New Year. Plus, you'll find Mr. & Ms. Green Thumb on hand daily from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. to answer questions about the gardens.Art is a common theme at the Bellagio with museum-caliber exhibitions chosen from prestigious collections captivating patrons at The Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. The lobby for Cirque du Soleil's water acrobatics masterpiece "O" showcases bronze sculptures of dancers and acrobats by master sculptor Richard MacDonald, ushering guests into the world of grace and motion before they even enter the theater.Guests will find ultimate relaxation at the Zen-inspired, two-story and can also take fitness classes in The Bamboo Studio exercise room. A quiet hallway overlooking the villa-style pool area marks the perfect spot to enjoy a cold treat from Café Gelato, read a newspaper or sip coffee. The shops at are high-end and exclusive. Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Giorgio Armani and the timeless jewelry stores Breguet and Tiffany & Co. are counted among these, and several luxury retailers -- like Bellissimo for eyewear and Platino for men's wear -- can be found along the pool promenade.Nightlife is always a classy experience at the The Bank. In the grand foyer, bottles of Cristal are stacked from floor to ceiling. The dance floor is lined by etched-glass railings, and striking crystal chandeliers sway overhead. A spectacular indoor/outdoor nightlife venue, called Hyde Bellagio, which overlooks the Fountains of Bellagio, opened recently. It features an award-winning mixology program, tuxedo-clad servers, gourmet small plates and live DJs who play electrifying dance music. Visitors are also enjoying Lily. The new bar, boasting imported Spanish stone tabletops and community-style ottomans,  provides a more exclusive, intimate evening experience.For a first-rate dining experience, treat yourself to the succulent French fare of Le Cirque, a three-time winner of the coveted AAA Five-Diamond Award or take in the natural beauty of Sensi, where waterfalls and carved stone walls complement distinctive Asian and Italian delicacies. Savor chef Julian Serrano's magnificent Mediterranean food in Picasso, which features some of the great master's paintings. Enjoy a view of the fountains at Todd English's Olives or pick up a sweet treat at the tempting Jean Philippe Pâtisserie, home to the world's tallest and largest chocolate fountain.Decorated with custom-draped canopies and coffered ceilings, the casino offers table games, video poker and slots as well as the high-limit lounge Club Privé and an exclusive baccarat room for VIP guests. An ultra sleek race and sports book houses 13 huge video screens and countless leather chairs. It's also situated next to the stylish Starting Gate bar. The 40-table poker room features "The Game," a commissioned painting by artist LeRoy Neiman, portraying preeminent poker players engaged in a high stakes game. Privileged players may also get the chance to step inside the signature one-table "Bobby's Room," named for Bobby Baldwin, the 1978 World Series of Poker champion and the president and CEO of CityCenter.Accommodations in the Resort Tower of the Bellagio have been completely remodeled. Guests can now enjoy rooms from an elegant collection featuring three distinct color palettes. Each one contains contemporary furnishings, fine wall art, a custom pillow-top mattress, a 40-inch flat-screen HD television and an internet hub/charging station. The bathrooms are spacious and showcase Italian marble floors and surfaces.Couples wishing to marry will find an ambience of beauty and romance at the Bellagio's wedding chapel and can even tie the knot upon the Terrazza di Sogno (Terrace of Dreams), an Italian balcony overlooking the fountains.The Bellagio caters to guests from around the world while balancing an elegant and contemporary atmosphere. A feast for the eyes, soul and stomach, the property offers its guests a taste of all the finer things in life.-- Staff Report

Wasn't what I thought
PostedApril 19, 2013
I've stayed in Ceasars Palace many times and it is so much better. Belliago is nice but it doesn't compare to Ceasars. We recommened months before to have a Suite with a fountain view and when we arrived they told us they had nothing left but gave us coupons to skip the line at certain resturants we did not use. The room was nice but we were at the back of the hotel and it was a very good view. We were in a Salon Suite which was at the very end of the hotel. Belliago is nice but we think we are going to stick with Ceasars Palace.
