Las Vegas has plenty of must-see shows, but Cirque du Soleil shows dominate and dazzle the Strip like no other. With the recent addition of R.U.N. by Cirque du Soleil, the world-renowned production company isn’t showing signs of slowing down anytime soon. Known for its fascinating characters, incredible artistry and immersive storylines, the company has changed the way we look at the “circus” – and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Deciding on which Cirque show to see can be quite a challenge, so we made it easier for you. Here are the Cirque shows in Vegas – ranked:

The Beatles Love
Perhaps one of the one most popular and acclaimed Cirque shows in Vegas, The Beatles LOVE at the Mirage takes audiences on a beautiful journey through the classic music of the band. With the music comes vintage imagery and over-the-top stunts including a high-energy trampoline act; a fast-moving roller-skate routine choreographed to "Help!" and a giant bedsheet that gets pulled over the audience.

Michael Jackson ONE
Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay is as close to seeing Michael Jackson live in concert as you’re ever going to get. The show brings the King of Pop to life through giant video screens and even a hologram. Audiences get to walk through Michael’s classic videos, which are brought to life through his famous costumes and dance routines. The most exciting part about the show is the trampoline act set to “Thriller.” Get tickets to Michael Jackson ONE

Mystère
The longest-running Cirque show in Las Vegas, Mystère at Treasure Island is your most classic Cirque production with acrobatics, tumbling gymnasts, comedic magicians and serial artists. Mystère also has some pretty unique characters like an adult dressed like a baby and a snail that grows throughout the show until it’s so large four puppeteers have to control it. Get tickets to Mystere

Zumanity
The most sensual Cirque production on the Strip, Zumanity at New York-New York is for adults’ eyes only. The show, which is hosted by a drag queen, has everything from men swinging from chains to daredevil acts and even a simulated orgy near the finale. Bondage, sexuality and gender barriers are common themes. Get tickets to Zumanity


If you want to be wowed with visuals you must see at MGM Grand. The show all takes place on moving platforms carrying lavish set pieces while moving in all directions. The pieces include sand dunes, a forest, and a shipwreck at sea. The theme is globally inspired borrowing elements from Asia and South America. Get tickets to KA

O
Despite its short name, O at the Bellagio is quite extraordinary. “Eau” but pronounced “O,” is the French name for water, takes place in and above a giant pool, with a team of acrobats, divers, and synchronized swimmers. Among the spectacular feats is a high dive where performers drop 60 feet into water below. There are also above water antics like acrobats on giant swings, and a fire. Get tickets to O
