Multimillion dollar Cirque extravaganza created by the producers of “The Illusionists”


RENO, NV (April 26, 2017) – The producers of the Broadway smash hit “The Illusionists” and the Eldorado are teaming up to bring a multimillion dollar Cirque extravaganza to Reno this summer. Cirque Le Noir | The Dark Side of Cirque opens June 2 and runs through August 27 in the newly renovated Eldorado Theatre. For the first time ever, an in-the-round stage will take over the theatre and show attendees will have a once in a lifetime experience to sit on the stage and in the center of the action, with heart-pounding acts only inches away.


Cirque Le Noir is a truly unique and electrifying experience and features the world’s greatest circus acts, aerialists and athletes. The show is carefully engineered with the deliberate intention of making the audience a part of the entertainment, bringing them physically closer to the artists than any other show. Cirque Le Noir is a theatrical experience that engages every sense and has been designed to be enjoyed by audiences young and old. The most extraordinary cirque performers from around the world, many of them formerly from Cirque du Soleil, are the centerpiece of this production and will enthrall crowds in this spell-binding theatrical journey. With incredible demonstrations of balance, contortion, stamina and aerial artistry, the skills exhibited by the cast of Cirque Le Noir make this a show that audiences won’t want to miss.


This production is surreal, beautiful, seductive and at times hilariously outrageous as it explores emotions through colors as the cast transforms from beautiful and pure white, through to the passion of red and finally culminating with the darkness of Cirque Le Noir.


For the first time ever, the Eldorado is pleased to offer VIP Champagne Stage Seating, which will be available for a limited number of seats per performance and includes a glass of Eldorado private label champagne. In addition, guests of Cirque Le Noir will be among the first to see the Eldorado Theatre in its renovated state which includes an inviting refresh with gorgeous new chandeliers, carpet, lighting and reupholstered chairs.  


Champagne seating starts at $49.95 and standard seating starts at $29.95. Enjoy half-off an entrée at any Eldorado restaurant on the night of the show with the purchase of a full-price ticket. Visit to purchase tickets today.
