Originally known as the Circus of the Sun, Cirque du Soleil has grown into one of the world’s largest producers of contemporary circus entertainment. Initially founded by Guy Laliberte and Gilles Ste-Croix in 1984, Cirque du Soleil began as a stilt-walking troupe entertaining the masses before launching their fame in the late 80s at an international level.
After attaining nationwide fame, Cirque du Soleil set its sights on international entertainment before settling down in the deserts of Nevada and the Las Vegas strip.
Now one of the most entertaining things to do in Las Vegas, let’s explore some of the fun ways that Cirque du Soleil can make your trip to Vegas memorable.
