IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE, COMBINING ARTISTRY, TECHNOLOGY AND EMOTION WILL PERFORM EIGHT SHOWS A WEEK
LAS VEGAS (January 2, 2019) – Celestia, an all-new, international production written and directed by Sasha Ivanov, the founder of the live entertainment company Intrigue Shows, will make its debut at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019. This tour de force of acrobatics, technology, artistry and illusion will perform eight shows a week in a unique 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art tent located right on the Las Vegas Strip.
Presenting an otherworldly story of love and sacrifice through elite acrobatics and dance, aerial feats, live music, state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated illusion, Celestia brings together a talented troupe of 32 multicultural performers to create an eye-popping, immersive experience. From mind-blowing contortion and the Wheel of Death act, to real-time motion capture and projection mapping, Celestia’s world-class performers create a dazzling spectacle unlike any other.
Suitable for audiences of all ages, the 90-minute show is perfect for both Las Vegas locals and those visiting from around the world. This awe-inspiring show, in a never-before-seen proprietary tent, is the first production of this magnitude to take place on this part of the Las Vegas Strip.
Celestia is the brainchild of Intrigue Shows Founder and Creative Director Sasha Ivanov, the former associate music director for Cirque du Soleil’s acclaimed production, Kooza. Having produced over 60 nationally released albums and composed music for Hollywood productions, Ivanov has worked with top artists including Lady Gaga, P!nk, will.i.am and more.
“We’ve put together an incredible cast of performers to tell a timeless and philosophical love story that is at once unique and universal,” said Ivanov. “With technology that has never been used before in Las Vegas, Celestia truly has something for everyone.”
This large scale theatrical show has been a long-standing dream of Vladimir Evseev, founder of the Allrise Financial Group, who, two years ago, approached Ivanov with the concept. Now, this dream has evolved into one of the most unique productions to call Las Vegas home.
The show’s creative team includes Technical Director of Acrobatic Elements Juan Carlos Valencia, who has more than 25 years’ experience with companies including The Royal London Circus, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Celestia’s Emmy Award-winning choreographer is Bonnie Story, whose work has been prominently featured on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” and on all three “High School Musical” films. Kevin Wilson, lead choreographer, has shared the stage with some of the world’s top recording artists, and Jimmy Arguello, assistant choreographer, has taught dance over the past 15 years worldwide and has contributed to a number of television shows, movies, tours and productions.
“Celestia is a visually stunning show filled with incredible acrobatics, and we are looking forward to introducing it here at the Stratosphere,” said Christopher Fiumara, vice president and general manager of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. “The spectacular, one-of-a-kind tent that houses this phenomenal production makes for an exciting addition to the Stratosphere, which is continuing to enhance the overall guest experience with world class entertainment, dining and amenities.”
Celestia will have eight performances per week, with 7 p.m. shows on Wednesdays and Thursdays and 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. shows on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and is dark Mondays and Tuesdays. Tickets ranging in price from $29 – $89, not including taxes and fees, are available for purchase online now at Celestiashow.com
