Sin City Opera teams up with Off-Strip Productions to perform two one-act operas at the Onyx Theatre. The two operas are thematically related, each having plots that center around telephones, and the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Gian Carlo Menotti's comic The Telephone presents an exasperating situation that is especially resonant now that we all have mobile phones. Poor Ben has a very important question for Lucy, but his attempts to ask it are constantly interrupted by telephone calls. The dramatic tour de force The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine) by Francis Poulenc (performed in a new English translation) is a musical adaptation of Jean Cocteau's dramatic monologue of the same name.

This show was a wonderful little gem in all the glitzy camp of the various other Vegas shows I've seen on the strip. We had great seats (up front in a comfortable booth..thx Goldstar!) and a clear view of all the amazing performers with their wonderful tumbling antics,magic tricks, dancing, and comedy. Much like a Japanese variety show without an irritating emcee. It's not really a musical, though, at least in the traditional western sense of the word. There is no singing, but music is played in the background. Overall, a great bargain for such a fun show. I would definitely catch them again, if I get the chance, the next time I'm in Vegas.

Japan’s famed “Muscle Musical” returns to the Las Vegas Strip, as Matsuri has arrived at Imperial Palace.
Earning critical acclaim at the Riviera in 2006 and Sahara in 2007, Matsuri is a unique show that transcends language. No words are necessary, as highly skilled, athletic performers let their muscles do the talking. Costumes by world-famous designer Junko Koshino add to the visual spectacle of this showcase for traditional Japanese culture – with an original twist.
The 75-minute show features a cast of 18 Japanese athletes who perform stunts like Human Jump Rope, Judo Tango, Lion Dance and Foot Drums. Contagious energy and mesmerizing feats of strength send audiences home wide-eyed with grins sized to match.
