Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil brings another incredible production to the Las Vegas Strip at Aria Resort & Casino. Featuring a 70-member cast of world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and high wire and trapeze artists, Zarkana amazes audiences as a story of revival unfolds (and flips, and jumps, and spins, and.. OK, you get it) before your eyes.Set in a zany alternate universe where bizarre meets arcana (Boom! The phonic parents of Zarkana), a wildly eclectic collection of forgotten circus characters and their jaw-dropping talents explore otherworldly scenarios as their washed up extravaganza comes back to life.Tucked into the surprisingly intimate 1,800-seat Aria Theater, all audience members will feel immersed in the experience… especially when the characters burst through the theater’s imaginary fourth wall to soar above the seats. With comic interjections by the show’s two clowns and an on-stage audience of ghostly members of circus’ past who mingle with the audience throughout the production, you might just feel as if you’re a part of the show yourself…sans the uber bendy and flippy parts, which we will leave to the pros (obviously because groin injuries are not ideal).Among the show’s daring acts, audience members will hold their breath while observing the “Wheel of Death,” a high wire act complete with a swinging pendulum ball of raging fire (you know, since performing tricks on a cable a couple dozen feet in the air isn’t dangerous enough), a flying trapeze routine, in addition to an impressive ladder balancing act. However, you will have plenty of time to dry your sweaty palms and settle your anxiety when taking in beautiful (and less life-threatening) acts of endurance and strength when taking in the aerial straps, hand balancing, sand painting, flag manipulation and juggling acts among others as well.And since every Cirque du Soleil show is performed with the musical aid of a live band, audiences will enjoy an all-encompassing musical experience with a lead singer who has seemingly range-less vocals that hit even the most daunting of notes.Similarly, in addition to the production’s 12-song soundtrack, there are intricate set changes that transform the stage to complement every act. Multiple layers of LED screens create stunning visuals that transform from an old circus, to outer space, to a snake-infested jungle, to a spider’s web and others scenes that add to the show’s unique visual experience.But back to the audience involvement, we will not tell you exactly what happens but we will let you know that those clowns we previously mentioned take a little stroll in the audience during the show and do not return to the stage alone. If you’re a female sitting in the first few rows, you just may be selected to join the two comical creatures on stage to help demonstrate their electric chair…let's just say that sparks definitely fly.Basically, in true Cirque du Soleil fashion, “Zarkana” serves audience members a visual treat with seemingly impossible physical feats that blur the line between reality and a wild realm of imagination. So, get your glasses, eye drops, tape… whatever will help you keep your eyes open and not blink because this is one production that you will want to catch every second of.

Fancy circus performance but nothing exceptional
PostedMay 20, 2013
This show reminded me of going to the circus when I was a little kid except that I wasn't sitting in dirty bleachers and under a tent. It even had clowns and a ring master which neither were exceptional compared to clowns and master of ceremonies of the past. Just okay. It was missing the live animals from circus performance of the past....maybe it would have been better than average if animal acts were included. It was 90 minutes of entertainment but nothing special. The guy two seats down from me fell asleep during the show.

My child is 2.5 years old can he attend the show?

Yes it will be like taking him to an expensive old Barnum & Bailey Curcus but in Vegas. I've seen this show before when I was 10 and going to the circus with my parents. Your 2.5 will enjoy it. He will most likely like the clowns the best...
