It’s one thing to perform. It’s another to create. Nevada Ballet Theatre and Cirque du Soleil give dancers a chance at both with their annual collaboration, A Choreographers’ Showcase. The event features dancers from NBT and such Cirque productions as O, Mystere, KÀ, Zumanity and Viva Elvis performing original works choreographed by members of both companies. Founded in 2007, the showcase has turned into one of Southern Nevada’s most interesting dance events, merging the entertainment industry with fine art on a high-tech stage. Nevada Ballet artists choreograph five works, Cirque artists five more, with all 10 pieces incorporating dancers from both. Past editions have included narrative and abstract numbers, performed as duets and ensemble works.
ARIA Resort & Casino at CityCenter
The centerpiece of CityCenter Las Vegas is Aria Resort & Casino, a stunning AAA Five Diamond resort on The Strip featuring an unprecedented combination of striking architecture, sustainable design, spectacular amenities, high-end service and premium meeting and convention space.
From unique culinary offerings created by the world’s most talented chefs, to innovative nightlife, indulgent spa treatments and Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil, ARIA embodies the excitement and vitality of Las Vegas.
Aria is home to an incredible collection of stylish and technologically advanced accommodations including Sky Suites, a AAA Five Diamond hotel within a hotel experience. And it's hard to miss — it lit up its new 25-foot-tall LED sign in April 2013.
Combined with CityCenter’s unparalleled amenities including luxurious shopping at Crystals and the first-of-its-kind public Fine Art Collection, ARIA introduces a new generation of resort experiences, unlike anything Las Vegas has ever seen.
