Since opening in early 2005, Cirque du Soleil’s KA has been one of the must-see Las Vegas events, having entertained over one million people in just over a decade and a half.

As the first Cirque du Soleil show to feature a cohesive storyline throughout all the acts, KA tells the story of twins – a boy and a girl – who embark on a journey to fulfill their shared destiny. The show combines acrobatics, martial arts, pyrotechnics and more and has been hailed by many as a technical marvel.

One of the things that makes KA stand out from other performances is its unique set design. Rather than having a stage with a permanent floor, the show is performed on two large moving platforms which makes it look as though the performers are floating high in the air.

Where is the Show Performed?

KA is in permanent residence at the MGM Grand Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The show itself has takes place in the aptly-named KA theatre, located on the casino floor, which has a seating capacity of 1,950 seats.

How long is KA by Cirque du Soleil?

The runtime for KA is about 90 minutes long, and there is no intermission break during the show.

Cirque du Soleil: KA Reviews

“The forces of good and evil wage a long, furious battle over land and sea in ‘KA,’ the latest theatrical extravaganza from Cirque du Soleil, but it’s the power of hydraulics that emerges triumphant in this stylish, technically dazzling entertainment.” – Charles Isherwood, New York Times

“It includes so many different movement traditions, so many different cultures, so many different kinds of creative forces, so many clever people given all the resources that they could possibly imagine, so much fire, that it would take several viewings to appreciate its many levels.” – Mark Swed, LA Times
