Born from a personal friendship and mutual admiration between the late George Harrison and Cirque founder Guy Laliberté, LOVE brings the magic of Cirque du Soleil together with the spirit and passion behind the most beloved rock group of all time to create a vivid, intimate and powerful entertainment experience.
The international cast of 60 actors, acrobats and dancers channels a raw, youthful energy underscored by aerial performance, extreme sports and urban, freestyle dance. With panoramic sound and visuals, the audience can experience The Beatles as never before. Only at The Mirage, Las Vegas.
The making of the show was documented in the feature-length film “All Together Now”. The film chronicles the conception and production of this unique show, from the building of the musical soundscape by Sir George and Giles Martin, to the contributions of Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison and the experiences of the cast members.
