    How many have you been to & do you like them overall or not so much? :)

    I've been to 2:

    - Cirque Voila - simple & amateurish, not nearly as extravagent as the others

    - Cirque Viaggio - pretty good

    I'd definitely go to more. There's one called Cirque Dreams Illumination that I want to see. I think they're fascinating.

    I've only seen Mystere at the TI in Vegas, but I loved it. My husband's firm is having their conference in Hollywood this week, so I went down for the VIP dinner on Wednesday, and we got to tour the Kodak Theater, where the Oscars are held. Right now the interior is under construction for a new Cirque show that's opening in 2011 and will run for 10 years, 10 months a year. They'll shut it down for two months so they can hold the Oscars there.

    I've seen Mystere, Allegria, Corteo, and Saltimbanco. Kooza is in the area next month and I think my husband bought tickets, but I'm not sure.....

    My favorite out of those was Saltimbanco and Allegria.

    I saw KA at the MGM in Las Vegas and I really loved it. It's the one with the moving stage, and an actual story/plot. It was stunning.

    I saw Mystere at Treasure Island and Zumanity at New York New York when I went to Vegas a couple of months ago.
    I want to see "O" next time we're in Vegas.
