This week, Frank and I are in Las Vegas and loving it!  He is here representing his company at a conference and I am tagging along – working from my hotel room and enjoying what the city has to offer.  This is my first time to really enjoy all that Las Vegas has to offer – slots, free alcohol (well tip not included), shows, and more!

On our first night in Vegas, we had the opportunity to check out the Cirque Du Soleil show – Zarkana.  This will be my third Cirque Du Soleil show I’ve seen, but my first in Vegas, and let me tell you – it was just as good as I would have expected it to be!  Zarkana is currently playing at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas.

What is Zarkana about?  Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil is an acrobatic rock experience that blends circus arts with the surreal to create a world where physical virtuosity rubs shoulders with the strange.


Zark, the ringmaster of an extraordinary circus coming back to life, guides us in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. Among other attractions, he introduces the Mutants, four sirens as sinister as they are fabulous.


Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted musical and acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration.


Our favorite parts of the show included Sand Painting, the Flying Trapeze, and the Hand Balancing Act.
