iL CiRCo AT HARRAH'S
iL CiRCo, a captivating cirque-inspired production, will premiere March 13-23 at Harrah’s Rincon Casino & Resort, Southern California’s first Las Vegas-style casino. iL CiRCo re-invents the Commedia dell’arte style of entertainment with a rich tapestry of acrobatics, dance, comedy, and fantasy, offering a one-of-a-kind experience for Harrah’s guests, according to Tom Dingman, senior vice president and general manager. “iL CiRCo is the first show of this genre outside of a Las Vegas showroom that reaches such a heightened theatrical level,” said Dingman. “Harrah’s Rincon promised Southern Californians a true Las Vegas experience and iL CiRCo certainly captures it. With the gravity-defying acts and sophisticated production numbers, we are providing entertainment that is captivating both visually and emotionally.” iL CiRCo is described as an enchanting journey that takes the audience to a fantasy world of outrageously costumed characters,, amazing acrobatics, and a beautiful original musical score. The show is produced by Imagination Entertainment located in downtown San Diego, the same group that brought San Diego Cirque de la Mer. The international cast comes from varied backgrounds such as the Moscow Circus, Cirque du Soleil, and several touring Broadway productions. Sam Trego, President of Imagination Entertainment and Executive Producer of iL CiRCo said, “It’s tremendously exciting for us to be opening at Harrah’s. iL CiRCo has been performed for special events, festivals and theatrical tours worldwide, and we’re thrilled to be able to share our flagship production with the public here in our home city of San Diego for the very first time.” Ticket packages include dinner at the International Buffet, starting as low as $29.95 for two, and are available only to adults 21 years of age and over.
