  • Cirque tells more about new Michael Jackson Vegas show

    Cirque du Soleil's second partnership with the estate of Michael Jackson aims to be a thriller.

    Cirque's Welby Altidor tells USA TODAY that Michael Jackson ONE will begin performances May 23 and take up residency at the renovated theater at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The show is a partnership between Cirque and the Jackson estate. The official grand opening is planned for late June.

    The 90-minute show will feature five dozen cast members, from dancers to acrobats (no one will portray Jackson), and offer "a very close encounter with the music of Michael Jackson" and with the late pop icon's artistic vision, Altidor, "director of creation" for ONE, says.

    Unlike Cirque's current touring arena Jackson show, IMMORTAL, the Mandalay Bay production will be more intimate and interactive, Altidor says. "It's another story about Michael's genius," focusing on his No. 1 hits. "There will be experiences above (the audience), on the side and in the front."

    Cirque had what Altidor calls "unprecedented access" to Jackson's master recordings and will use them. "At times it will feel like being in the studio with Michael," he says. Tickets go on sale March 7 at cirquedusoleil.com.

    ...uch auf der offiziellen Homepage ist es nun veröffentlicht... mit Kartenvorverkauf:

    ..wow..sieht ja toll aus..


    ööh..:verlegen.. is das hier der richtige thread...*kopfkratz*..könnte man das Thema zusammenfassen und nen ganz neuen thread erstellen ?

    Members of MGM Resorts’ M life Program

    General On sale Begins March 7

    Las Vegas, February 21, 2013 – The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil today unveiled that Michael Jackson ONE™ will open and take residency exclusively at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino this summer. Directed by Jamie King, Michael Jackson ONE will start its preview performances on May 23, 2013 and have its official premiere on June 29, 2013. This entirely new show is the second creative project to be developed between Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson after the top grossing Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, currently playing arenas in Europe as it travels the world.

    The show
    Michael Jackson ONE is a state-of-the-art visual and audio experience creating a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius. Guided and inspired by his music, four misfits set out on a transformative adventure. By journey's end, they will personify Michael's agility, courage, playfulness and love.

    Die Show
    Michael Jackson ONE ist eine state-of-art visuelles und Klangerlebnis das eine theatralische Evokation des schöpferischen Genies Michael kreiert. Geführt und inspiriert durch seine Musik gehen vier Außenseiter auf ein transformatives Abenteuer. Am Ende der Reise, werden sie Michael sAgilität , Mut, Verspieltheit und Liebe verkörpern.

    The name
    Michael Jackson believed that all people are unique and equal, regardless of race or culture. His message was one of unity, harmony and hope for a better world. At once evocative and enigmatic, the name Michael Jackson ONE also presents a paradox: Michael was a multifaceted artist who strove to fuse together various musical styles and art forms. It is a fitting title for a unifying journey into the world of the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.

    Der Name
    Michael Jackson glaubte, dass alle Menschen einzigartig und gleich sind, unabhängig von Rasse oder Kultur. Seine Botschaft war Einheit, Harmonie und Hoffnung auf eine bessere Welt. Auf der einen Seite evocativ und rätselhaft, der Name Michael Jackson ONE präsentiert auch ein Paradox: Michael war ein vielseitiger Künstler, der miteinander verschiedene Musikstile und Kunstformen verschmolz. Es ist ein passender Titel für eine gemeinsame Reise in die Welt des King of Pop, das Genie, der Visionär, der Eine.

    “This is our second project with the Estate of Michael Jackson which confirms how stimulating this creative partnership was meant to be”, said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil. “Michael Jackson is an all-time phenomenal artist, both timeless and contemporary. As a creative challenge, this project is the ultimate. Through the use of cutting edge technology, we will produce a new Cirque du Soleil theatrical experience not only respectful of Michael’s legacy but also very distinctive from Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour.”

    “We are guided by Michael’s own philosophy in all that we do. In preparing for this production, Michael’s message to the cast and crew for his This is it concerts was foremost in our minds. He counseled them on what the audience experience should be: ‘They want wonderful experiences. We want to take them places that they’ve never been before. We want to show them talent like they’ve never seen before. We’re putting love back into the world to remind the world that love is important. WE’RE ALL ONE. That is the message. ’ We feel the same, and that is what we are delivering both to lifelong fans and those just discovering his artistic genius with Michael Jackson ONE,” stated John Branca and John McClain, Co-Executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson.

    "Wir sind durch Michaels eigene Philosophie geleitet in allem was wir tun. Bei der Vorbereitung dieser Produktion ist Michaels Botschaft an die Besetzung und Crew für seine This It Konzerte in unseren Köpfen. Er sagte ihnen wie die Erfahrung die das Publikum machen sollte sein soll "Sie wollen schöne Erlebnisse. Wir wollen sie an einen anderen Ort mitnehmen, die sie noch nie zuvor gesehen haben. Wir wollen ihnen zeigen, Talente, die sie noch nie zuvor gesehen haben. Wir wolen Liebe zurück in die Welt senden, um die Welt daran zu erinnern, dass die Liebe wichtig ist. WIR SIND ALLE EINS. Das ist die Botschaft. "Wir fühlen gleich und das ist es was wir liefern sowohl seinen lebenslangen Fans und die, die gerade die Entdeckung seines künstlerischen Genies mit Michael Jackson ONE erfahren, sagte John Branca und John McClain, Co-Executor der Estate of Michael Jackson.

    Chuck Bowling, Mandalay Bay’s president and COO, said, “The partnership with Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson represents an extraordinary moment for Mandalay Bay. We are in the midst of a major transformation at this resort, introducing a new set of experiences for our guests. Michael Jackson ONE is truly the crown jewel in that transformation and we cannot wait to share this very special production with the world.”

    Along with Jamie King—who started his career as a dancer on Michael’s Dangerous World Tour and also directed the arena touring show Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil—, Michael Jackson ONE will bring together the creative minds behind the Michael Jackson Estate, John Branca and John McClain, and the diverse talents of the following creators (creators’ bios are available on Cirque du Soleil’s press room at http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/pre...son-one.aspx):

  • One' depicts pop star's media ties

    Cirque du Soleil's new "Michael Jackson One" show plans to tap into the pop star's years of being hounded by tabloid journalists.

    Robotlike characters dressed in black trenchcoats will be known as "Tabloid Junkies," from Jackson's 1995 unreleased song of the same name. They made their debut with other dancers during Thursday's unveiling of the show's title and logo at a news conference at Mandalay Bay.s w

    Previews of the show start May 23. The grand opening is set for June 29 in the 1,800-seat theater.

    Welby Altidor, Cirque's director of creation, said, "We wanted to do a tongue-in-cheek" reference to add a darker force that "talks about his relationship with the media."

    The recurring lyrics of the song go: "Just because you read it in the magazine or see it on the TV screen don't make it factual."

    Another group of singers, described by Altidor as "our Greek chorus," will represent all the different energies and influences of Jackson, "and we will recognize that through their costumes."

    The 63 artists representing 17 nationalities will include acrobats from all over the world and three dance crews: the Art Farmers from Korea, a girl group known as ReQuest from New Zealand and 787 Crew from Puerto Rico.

    Dancers called the MJ Warriors will "create the first line of defense for Michael," Altidor said.

    Another act he is convinced will be a crowd pleaser will be the slack-line artists.

    "It's a completely new discipline that's been emerging on the urban front. Imagine an elastic line attached to poles. The artists bounce and do acrobatics on it, really cool tricks. It's really popular with youngsters around the word."

    He said the song "Dirty Diana," which wasn't in the touring Jackson show "The Immortal," will feature a Las Vegas pole dancer named Jeanine.

    "The twist," Altidor said, "will be a twisted pole like no one's ever seen. It's like those straws that are twisted."


  • Ich finds gut.. bisserl mehr Speed und knackige, fetzige Moves können ja mal gut tun. Die Eleganz von Michael erwarte ich da erst gar nicht. So ne Show muß mich wie ne Droge treiben, gerade weil Michael nimmer da ist.
