February 22, 2010
The reviews are in following the world premiere performance of Viva ELVIS™ by Cirque du Soleil®
in Las Vegas over the weekend. Below are just a few of the reviews from critics who had a front row seat to the first official show.
“Cirque Du Soleil's "Viva Elvis
" outfabs Beatles. With the production's successfully bold musical choices and its sheer size and spectacle, the new Aria Resort & Casino can rest easy that folks from all over will seek an audience with the King.”
- Erik Pedersen, Hollywood Reporter / abcnews.com
“They've concocted an experience that's both symphonic and in every way fantastic.”
- Richard Corliss, TIME MAGAZINE
“This isn’t just a show, it’s a glorious celebration of the life of the king of rock ’n’ roll. Viva ELVIS
is a new genre for Cirque: a splashy, feel-good musical with circus acts based on the golden oldies recorded by a single, iconic singer.”
- Pat Donnelly, Montreal Gazette
“It delivers exactly what many — most, probably — want from a Vegas show. Which would be vivid image after eye-sizzling sensation.”
- Joe Brown, Las Vegas Sun
“Elvis is back in Las Vegas and it looks like his show will run forever.”
