Whenever I’m in Las Vegas a stop at the Bellagio Conservatory is on the agenda. On my recent trip the theme was autumn-inspired and as always it was sensational. We enjoy seeing their imaginative and beautiful displays while getting plenty of photos. Here are a few of my favorites:
Last month on the last night of my trip out west, I got to see KA at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. A perfect ending to a trip packed with so many fun activities, this was spectacular.
Kà is a show by Cirque du Soleil at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Kà describes the story as “the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of Kà, the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate.” Wikipedia
Photos or video of the performance are forbidden and fine by me as I wanted to experience it fully, not through the lense of my iPhone. The photos shown here were taken pre or post-show.
While in Vegas I saw LOVE and it didn’t disappoint. Several years ago we went to a “Behind the Scenes” event at this theater giving us insight to the complexity of the production and how the show was written with input from Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. Until this trip I hadn’t seen the show.
This time I got to see LOVE and it was a rollicking ride from the first bars of “Get Back” and the non-stop theatrical experience of this Cirque du Soleil show. It is a theater in-the-round and we were in the first row. I must give credit to my sister who shared her photos as most shown here were taken by her.
Imaginarium in Las Vegas is a massive outdoor light show and was so much fun to explore. After sorting many photos, I’m sharing my favorites.
Once again I’m knocked out by the creativity and beauty at Bellagio’s Conservatory where the current theme is Bellagio’s Opus. There isn’t a visit to Vegas which doesn’t include this “must see” display.
The Conservatory – Bellagio’s Opus
Each season, the enormously talented Horticulture and Engineering teams transform the 14,000-square-foot Botanical Gardens into a showcase of inspiring sights, sounds, scents and colors. Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter are all featured—along with a special display for Lunar New Year. When the seasons change so do the displays. The talented Conservatory team changes out the design and also replants and repurposes as much of the living plant material as possible, further celebrating Mother Nature and our commitment to sustainability. This excerpt is from Bellagio’s website.
These are a few of my favorite photos!
Lunar New Year is the current theme at Bellagio. It’s the Year of the Rabbit.
My sister, brother-in-law and I experienced a most unusual and memorable evening at Lost Spirits Distillery.
Lost Spirits is a world class show, set in an immersive theatre, surrounding a working rum distiller, tickets include 4 rum tastings. The atmosphere is wildly creative and charged with a sense of fun and unexpected moments as you enjoy the talented performers and fellow guests.
As you walk through a maze of softly lit hallways to intimate spaces with small stages you’re treated to acts including burlesque, tango, vocalists, acrobats and aerialists mere feet away from where you’re standing. I’ve included videos at the end of this post which capture a few incredible performances.
Experience Awe-Inspiring Exhibit Of Vincent Van Gogh’s Art Projected Over 500,000 Cubic ft. From Creators Of Immersive Blockbuster Show
Last week my sister and I visited the incredible immersive experience featuring the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh. It’s hard to describe the feeling of being inside the art as it changes moment by moment. I’ve tried to capture the experience and encourage anyone to see it in person.
Even the gallery gift shop was fabulous!
On my recent visit to Las Vegas I saw a show which was truly one of the most unexpectedly fun evenings imaginable.
The Edward Twins are celebrity impersonator brothers, one performing all males, the other all female celebrities. They aren’t lip-syncing – they’re singing and doing so with talent, conviction and incredible vocal range. More than that, they’ve studied the celebrities they portray with incredible commitment. Beyond transformation with costumes, wigs and makeup, they embody voice, dance, movement and nuance recognizable to each performer. I felt like I’d been to a concert featuring Celine Dion, Cher, Billy Joel, Barbra Streisand and Andrea Bocelli to name a few.
They impersonate over 100 celebrities and change up each show to keep it fresh for those lucky enough to see them more than once.
The photos I’m adding to this post were taken by my sister as I was too enthralled with the show to take any myself.
