When The Beatles joined forces with Cirque du Soleil in 2006, the world would have given anything to peek behind the curtain of the creative process. Now, 10 successful years later, The Beatles LOVE will open its doors to the public for free – giving Beatles and Cirque du Soleil fans alike a rare inside look at the world’s most celebrated and revolutionary musical experience.
Beginning Saturday, July 1, guests can experience LOVE’s new Magical Technical Tour, a complimentary open house showcasing the production’s state-of-the-art technology, one-of-a-kind set pieces and more. As part of the presentation, attendees will enjoy a demonstration of the show’s powerhouse opening number “Get Back” – removing artists from the equation to highlight the production’s immense capabilities.
Guests will also hear the theatre’s epic sound system, which creates an authentic, concert-like experience allowing fans to enjoy the GRAMMY Award winning soundtrack unlike anywhere else in the world. Unlike other productions, this is the only show involving creative input from The Beatles themselves, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr who advised on aspects of the show, along with contributions from Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.
“What many people don’t realize is that LOVE is so much more than what you see onstage,” said Melanie Lalande, artistic director of The Beatles LOVE. “It’s the 68 cast and 120 crew members who bring the show to life – those who perform, control lighting, create props, care for costumes and everything in between. The depth of talent we have at Cirque du Soleil is truly inspiring, and that’s why we were chosen to continue the legacy of music’s most beloved group.”
The Magical Technical Tour will be held inside the LOVE Theatre at The Mirage Hotel & Casino every Saturday from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Guests will receive an exclusive ticket offer, which may be redeemed at the box office. All ages are welcome.
