Cirque du Soleil hasn’t revealed much about its Elvis-themed show that will be staged at the new Aria hotel at CityCenter, but today the company unveiled the name of the production: “Viva ELVIS.”
The show, billed as “a tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley,” will be staged in an 1,800-seat theater and will feature a combination of dance, acrobatics and live music. “Viva ELVIS” will also include acting, which is something that hasn’t been seen in other Cirque shows.
The story of significant moments and relationships in Elvis’ life will be intertwined with Elvis’ chart-topping music to portray to audiences who Elvis really was.
No opening date has been given for the show, but the Aria hotel is set to open Dec. 16.
