Following on the heels of its 10th anniversary celebration and a reimagining of the show, "The Beatles Love" by Cirque du Soleil has announced an opportunity for fans to see the show's inner workings.
Starting Oct. 14, the production began welcoming visitors to open rehearsals, offering a chance to see both new and old acts practice their routines before the evening show.
The rehearsals are free to attend, and guests will also get access to special deals on tickets for the full performance.
"We are opening our doors to show fans exactly what it takes to bring 'Love' to life," Melanie Lalande, the show's artistic director, said in a release. "When you experience something as extraordinary as this show, you can't help but wonder how our artists are able to do the things they do, whether it's Lucy flying over the audience or acrobats flipping through the air during the trampoline act in 'Revolution.' It's an amazing opportunity to fall for 'Love' in a totally new way."
"The Beatles Love" opened at the Mirage in 2006, and marked the first time Cirque du Soleil built a show around a catalog of music. It features a cast of 70 artists, dancers and acrobats.
The open rehearsals take place at the Love Theater inside the Mirage every Friday from 4:15 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. and Sunday from 3 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., but are subject to cancellation. For more information and to confirm rehearsals, call the box office at (702) 792-7735. All ages are welcome.
