Cirque du Soleil Sets November 24 Return for ‘KÀ’

'Intermission' is over for the long-running show at MGM Grand

Cirque du Soleil is returning to full strength on the Las Vegas Strip, as the long-running at MGM Grand is, at last, scheduled to end its pandemic-induced “intermission” on November 24.

The revival of brings the total number of Cirque productions on the Strip back to five – The Beatles LOVE at Mirage, Michael Jackson: One at Mandalay Bay, O at Bellagio, and Mystere at Treasure Island – all resumed production after a lengthy hiatus.

While has been a fixture at MGM Grand since its debut in 2004, the relaxation of pandemic restrictions brought no guarantees that the show – or any Cirque production – would resume.

The company opted not to bring back its Zumanity show following last year’s shutdown, announcing in November that the New York-New York staple would end its run after nearly 17 years. 

That followed a March announcement that Cirque’s R.U.N. production, a massively hyped “Live Action Thriller” written by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, would close at Luxor. Though, to be fair, R.U.N. suffered from poor word of mouth and its cancelation came just before the full onset of the pandemic. 

As ‘s return nears, MGM Resorts International and Cirque du Soleil are emphasizing increased safety to protect performers and crew members, and all audience members are required to wear masks regardless of vaccination status.
