 Celine Dion
Celine Dion
International songstress Celine Dion is back in Vegas and better than ever. In her new show at Caesars Palace, the Grammy Award-winning artist performs her repertoire of hits and a collection of songs from other artists including Billy Joel and Ella Fitzgerald.Dion performs with 31 musicians, consisting of orchestra and band, who are situated behind her on the stage for most of the show. There aren't any back-up dancers. Instead the show puts the focus on Dion and her incredible voice. It also gives Dion the opportunity to take a break from singing to talk to her audience. After her first song, Dion takes a moment to express her gratitude for being able to return to the same showroom she called home from 2003 to 2007 with her previous show "A New Day."A video montage played before the show starts lets the audience in on what Dion has been doing since 2007. There are shots from her Taking Chances Tour, launched in 2008, which visited five continents, 25 countries and played to more than 3 million people. The montage also features video footage of her family including her son Rene-Charles Angelil and twins Eddy and Nelson. Returning to Caesars Palace and performing as a resident headliner in Vegas is a personal experience that Dion shares with the audience. "On top of all this, I can still do what I love, sing for you," says Dion.Throughout the show she breaks from singing to speak to her fans, making her performance feel like an intimate experience despite the Colosseum being a 4,300-seat venue.A stunning light and video display acts as a backdrop for Dion. Ken Ehrlich, who also directs the Grammy Awards shows, designed the visual presentation exclusively for the Colosseum. As Dion performs, moving stage pieces and a video and light display themed to each song, create an amazing audio and visual experience.During her performances of fan favorites including "Where Does My Heart Beat Now," "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," vintage clips of Dion, along with shots from the original music videos are played. Dressed in a sparkling gown, Dion evokes multiple standing ovations from the crowd before she's even half-way through the show.There's a brief interlude with a phenomenal violinist before Dion reappears on stage wearing a blue high-cut gown. This time she's with a three-piece band to perform Ella Fitzgerald's "(If You Can't Sing It) You'll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)." Dion's take on the jazzy song isn't what people are used to hearing from the French-Canadian ballad singer, and that's a good thing. She's got the power and pizzazz to make any song her own, and she does.Some of the other songs in the show include Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)," Shirley Bassey's "Godlfinger" from the 1964 James Bond film, the Paul McCartney & Wings song "Live and Let Die" and Janis Ian's "At Seventeen."The show's audio and visual effects hit an innovative high note during "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?," a duet that Dion performs with a hologram of herself."Well, that was a pretty neat trick," says Dion.This same technique is used for "Overjoyed," a duet that Dion performs with Stevie Wonder.Later on in the show the music picks up where Dion's repertoire of hits left off with her performance of "Beauty and the Beast," "All By Myself" and the French song "Ne Me Quitte Pas."The show also includes a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Dion explains how the king of pop helped influence her own career after seeing Jackson perform on television when she was 15 years old. While wearing a sparkling gold jacket reminiscent of Jackson, Dion performs "Ben" and "Man in the Mirror."There's no shortage of hits in this show. Fans will relish in hearing Dion's chart-topping anthems performed live. Even if you're not that familiar with her music, Dion's charisma and ability to conquer a dynamic mix of songs is sure to entertain all audiences.About DionDion grew up the youngest of 14 children in Quebec, Canada. During her childhood Dion sang with her siblings in her parents' small piano bar called Le Vieux Baril. When she was 12 she collaborated with her mother and brother Jacques to compose her first song, "Ce n'était qu'un rêve" ("It Was Only a Dream"). Her brother sent the song to music manager René Angélil.Impressed with the song, Angélil, Dion's future husband and manager, mortgaged his home to fund what would become Dion's first record, "La voix du bon Dieu" (a play on the words "The Voice of God/The Way of God"). Released in 1981, it became a local hit skyrocketing Dion to instant stardom in Quebec, Canada.In 1982 she competed in the Yamaha World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo where she won an award for "Top Performer" and "Best Song." The following years she continued to win awards increasing her popularity in Europe, Asia and Australia.Dion released her first album in the United States in 1991 called "Unison." The album was a hit within the adult contemporary radio format and featured the hit songs "(If There Was) Any Other Way," "The Last to Know," "Unison," and "Where Does My Heart Beat Now." The album's success established Dion as a rising star in the United States.Dion's album "The Colour of My Love," released in 1993 featured her first U.S., Canadian and Australian No. 1 single "The Power of Love." In 1996 the album "Falling Into You" solidified Dion's status as an international super star. The album featured a string of hits including "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," a re-make of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" and "Because You Loved Me."Her next English album "Let's Talk About Love" released the following year featured the mega hit "My Heart Will Go On," a love ballad and the theme song for the blockbuster film "Titanic." "My Heart Will Go On" was an international phenomenon and won Dion multiple awards including two Grammy awards.In 2002, Dion released "A New Day has Come," featuring the songs "A New Day Has Come," "I'm Alive," and "Goodbye's (The Saddest Word)." It was followed in 2003 by the album "One Heart" and in 2004 with "Miracle."Between 2003 and 2007 Dion performed more than 700 shows as part of her concert series "A New Day..." at Caesars Palace. When the show ended on Dec. 15, 2007, more than 3 million fans had seen it.Dion's most recent English album, "Taking Chances," was released in November, 2007. She followed up with an international tour that visited five continents.Dion has continued to release chart-topping music around the world. In May 2009 she was named the second best-selling female artist of the decade in the United States selling more than 17 million albums.-- By Caroline Fontein

"KÀ" by Cirque du Soleil is a saga that follows the adventures of a brother and sister twin duo that becomes separated during a siege of their Far Eastern palace by evil warriors.Except for an opening comment by an announcer setting up the story, there is no dialogue in the 90-minute production, rather the story is told through expressive and extensive choreography enacted by the production's 80-member cast.No expense was spared when $165 million was insightfully poured into creating the spectacular theater and tremendous show. And while the entire 1,950-seat theater is encompassed in aspects of the brilliantly detailed and highly technological set, it is the performers who truly bring the multi-faceted performance space to life. Don't believe us? Sit in the first several rows and be prepared for performers to fly over your seats! Or, if you sit farther back, you will feel the rhythm of the overhead drums as they are played during some of the show's acts.Rather than a conventional stage, "KÀ" is performed on two massive, mobile platforms in addition to five other smaller lifts and platforms all of which appear to be floating through a bottomless space. Through the use of digital projections, the different scenes transform the multi-way platforms into a mountain, a beach, a palace or a battleground as well as host yet another large prop -- the wheel of death. There are many memorable technological moments in the production: an underwater scene, a glider flight over the audience and spectacular fireworks, among many other exciting acts.And while the floating stages provide a magnificent space, the spectacle becomes even more brilliant when adorned with the acrobatic expertise of the show's cast. And while every Cirque show is defined by the incredible feats achieved by the production's myriad of performers, the cast of "KÀ" performs some of the most spectacular stunts of all the Cirque productions.But while the show enthralls the audience with daring stunts, magical musical and lighting collaborations, and technological marvels, some of its greatest moments are the quiet ones, such as when the audience observes the shadow puppets created by human hands and campfire light or the passionate romance between the imperial prince and the daughter of one his captors.By embracing all aspects of the production's vivid storyline through the use of a dedicated cast as well as with dramatic and extremely advanced technology, not only does "KÀ" find a way to resonate in some way with each member of the audience, but the show also achieves the epitome a masterful production.

Chiwawa's Questions
 
You have probably seen him on television performing incredible illusions such as making the Statue of Liberty disappear, navigating the rapids of Niagara Falls and flying over the Grand Canyon. Master magician David Copperfield seems to have done it all. His show in Las Vegas is a unique opportunity for audiences to see these larger-than- life illusions performed live and up close in the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand.Of course he can't exactly re-create all of them, but he demonstrates similar and equally amazing illusions using objects that are more suitable for a stage setting.Copperfield alludes to an illusion he did where he walked through the Great Wall of China and then explains that he is going to re-create that same illusion using a large metal sheet as the indestructible medium through which he will effortlessly pass.The metal sheet is placed on a raised platform, and Copperfield has two audience members come on stage to test it out by walking on it and hitting it with a rubber hammer.Next, he lies under the piece of metal, and four assistants hold a sheet over Copperfield and the platform. The assistants spin the platform around proving to the audience that there is no way out except by going through the metal. First you see just a finger poking through and then, within seconds, he miraculously appears on top of the metal sheet.This is just one of the mind-boggling magic tricks that he performs in the show. As the epitome of master magicians, Copperfield takes his illusions to another level of excitement and awe. Instead of doing the typical box trick where a woman is sliced in half, he locks himself in a box that begins to shrink in size. He smiles at the audience while moving his hands and feet as the box gets so small the entire length of his body has been reduced to mere inches.The box gradually gets bigger and Copperfield hops onto the stage saying, "that's how they made mini me," before moving on to his next illusion. He integrates his casual and comical personality into every act, resulting in laughter from the crowd.Audience interaction is a big part of the show as he incorporates a person picked at random for almost every illusion. You might even see him doing magic right in front of your seat when he performs illusions while standing in the audience. For one illusion he asks a woman to join him in the aisle on the side of the theater. He asks the woman to examine a piece of tissue paper before he rolls it into a ball and makes it levitate and dance along his arm with the tap of a finger.Unlike other magic shows in Las Vegas, Copperfield does not implement flashy showgirls, dancing or over the top production elements to supplement his illusions. His magic has enough of a wow factor on its own.His expertise as a magician dates back to when he was just 12 years old and started performing professionally. That same year he also became the youngest person ever to be admitted to the Society of American Magicians. From there, Copperfield went on to teach a course on magic at New York University when he was 16.During his first year in college, Copperfield starred in the Chicago musical, "The Magic Man," and as a result of the show's success he was selected to host ABC's "The Magic of ABC." From there he was offered his own series of specials with CBS titled "The Magic of David Copperfield." The series has been aired in over 40 countries.His illustrious career has made him a Guinness Book of World Record holder for having 21 Emmys, and he has a star on the Hollywood "Walk of Fame." Apart from his revue in Vegas, he continues to tour, performing sold out shows around the world.His enduring presence as a magician and integration into pop culture and even postage stamps proves that Copperfield's magic has no boundaries.He even demonstrates his ability to predict the future in an act where he gets people from the audience to provide him with different numbers that he later pulls from a box that has been hanging above the stage for the entire show.If just having the numbers on paper is not impressive enough, Copperfield also reveals a cassette tape with a recording of himself reciting the numbers that he plays for the audience. It is an astonishing feat that amazes everyone with the impossibility of it all.-- By Caroline Fontein
