This comprehensive renovation of the existing MGM Grand Showroom was to house the Cirque du Soleil production of KA, a combination of acrobatic performances, martial arts, puppetry, multimedia and pyrotechnics illustrating the nature of duality.

This 1950-seat theatre project included the addition of a 3-story support building, incorporation of 6 new state-of-the-art stage lifts and the infrastructure necessary to upgrade the existing facility to current technology.

A new lobby, concession area, retail outlet and box office were also added to serve the new theatre. The renovated theatre allows for the performance’s application of the visual vocabulary of cinema to a dazzling live event that is more about story telling than any previous Cirque du Soleil.
