This post provides details about the best Cirque du Soleil shows in Las Vegas, including a description of each show, average prices, and discount opportunities.


Overview

Cirque du Soleil is a popular variety show featuring a plethora of performance artists including acrobats, dancers, gymnasts, and more. Think of these shows as a more rehearsed and choreographed example of a circus performance, as the name subtly implies.

While the circus is usually very family-friendly, some Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas shows can be aimed more at adult audiences than at children. That said, most of the shows in Vegas are safe for young viewers and intended for a family audience.

Ticket prices tend to range from $75 - $300 on average, but there are also opportunities to save between 10% - 50% off admission which you can learn about in our discounts section.

Most Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas shows run for at least a week at a time, only taking 2-3 days off per week, and you can usually see them all in just a few days.

Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas shows almost always start at either 7 pm or 9:30 pm, and you’ll find them at some of the most famous hotels and casinos in Las Vegas.
