Today, Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson invited a select few to a sneak peek at a performance of Michael Jackson ONE. This first look at Cirque du Soleil’s newest Las Vegas show at Mandalay Bay started with a discussion panel with the creative team and introduced the performance. The preview included four acts of the show which made corporal the music and spirit of Michael Jackson.
It’s unlike any other show in the world. Even Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, you can’t compare. It’s a brand new show with a theater at Mandalay Bay specifically built for Michael Jackson ONE, so it’s been engineered to have the audience completely immersed in the world of Michael Jackson seamlessly. Join the adventure of four characters that personify MJ’s courage, love, playfulness, and agility with unbelievable Cirque du Soleil acrobatics that takes the theatrical experience to a new level.
“Cirque du Soleil tends to push the envelope on what human physic can do. Michael Jackson tends to push the envelope on what music and dance can do. The two energies together create one unique situation.” Said Rich Ralauega, Choreographer for Michael Jackson ONE. The creative team has also brought the dedication Michael Jackson had to his craft to the show. Jamie King, Writer and Director of MJ ONE, remembers working with Michael Jackson as a dancer on his Dangerous World Tour in 1992 and what resonated with him the most during the rehearsals with the King of Pop was MJ’s attention to detail, his artistry, and his strive for perfection, all in efforts so that the audience could feel that devotion on the stage. And that’s the production team’s intention; they want the Las Vegas audience to feel the spirit of Michael Jackson come alive on stage in one theatrical production filled with timeless music, incredible signature dance choreography, and innovative athleticism.
Michael Jackson ONE will start Preview Performances starting May 23rd, 2013 with their Official World Premiere on June 29th, 2013. You can find great seats for Michael Jackson ONE right here on BestofVegas.com, and see for yourself how the spirit of Michael Jackson lives on.
