Michael Jackson ONE: Celebrating a Spectacular 10 Years in Las Vegas by Cirque du Soleil

‘Michael Jackson’ Cirque du Soleil, the renowned entertainment company, is celebrating a milestone as its extraordinary show, Michael Jackson ONE, marks its 10th anniversary on the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Since its debut on June 29, 2013, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, this spectacular production has enthralled audiences and become a cornerstone of Las Vegas entertainment.

Cirque du Soleil, already known for its awe-inspiring shows like Mystère and “O,” faced the challenge of living up to its own reputation when creating MJ ONE. The team understood the weight of their task, as they aimed to build on the legacy of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil’s rich history in Las Vegas.

Reflecting on the journey, Igor Zambelli, a slackline artist who has been with the show from the beginning, remarks, “It seemed unattainable. Now looking back, we’ve really come a long way to create this history for ourselves. We’re part of continuing the legacy of Michael Jackson and the amazing history of Cirque in Las Vegas.” Today, MJ ONE attracts audiences from around the world five nights a week, solidifying its status as one of the top-selling shows in Las Vegas.

Every element of MJ ONE pays homage to the dedication and artistry that defined Michael Jackson’s career. From iconic songs and dance routines to groundbreaking music videos and his undeniable impact on fashion, the show encapsulates the essence of the King of Pop.

Veronica Vazquez, Wardrobe Supervisor, highlights the significance of the costumes, stating, “The costumes are so iconic. You expect that when you see a Michael Jackson show. You can’t do Smooth Criminal without seeing an element of that pinstripe suit.” Each outfit is meticulously designed to honor Jackson’s sense of style, incorporating elements such as the crystal-embellished glove, fedora, and rhinestone white socks. The wardrobe of MJ ONE truly embodies the timeless fashion statements of Michael Jackson.

The show’s attention to detail, coupled with the talent and creativity of the cast, crew, and creators, brings the production to life. Thousands of intricate elements, including costumes and props, seamlessly come together to create a performance that surpasses expectations.

Now, in its 10th year, Michael Jackson ONE has solidified its position as a dynamic collaboration between the music and legacy of Michael Jackson and the extraordinary acrobatics and production of Cirque du Soleil. With a mesmerizing blend of acrobatics, dance, and stunning visuals that capture the showmanship of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson ONE continues to astonish and inspire visitors from around the world. As it enters the next decade, this exceptional production will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the Las Vegas entertainment scene.
