'O' (Thursday, December 13th) - Add On Opportunity 

Cirque du Soleil weaves an aquatic tapestry of artistry, surrealism and theatrical romance in this timeless production. This breathtaking show is inspired by the concept of infinity and the elegance of water’s pure form.

Michael Jackson ONE (Friday, December 14th)

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “A virtual parade of ‘wow’ moments,” Michael Jackson ONE is an electrifying fusion of acrobatics, dance and visuals that reflect the dynamic showmanship of the King of Pop, immersing the audience in the world of Michael Jackson’s music.

KÀ (Saturday, December 15th)

KÀ, the unprecedented, gravity-defying production by Cirque du Soleil takes adventure to an all-new level. Be awed by a dynamic theatrical landscape, as an entire empire appears on the KÀ colossal stage and a captivating display of aerial acrobatics envelops the audience.

Mystère (Sunday, December 16th)

Mystère is the original must-see Cirque du Soleil production that combines high-energy acrobatics and dramatic dance set to the thunderous rhythms of the Taïko drums. Featuring an international cast of 67 artists, Mystère provides the ultimate discovery that life itself is a mystery. Only at Treasure Island.
