Zarkana is starting its residency at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas following hugely successful engagements at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, Arena Madrid and Moscow’s Kremlin State Palace Theatre.
The November 9th premiere opened to a bevy of celebrities including Glee cast members Dot Jones and Harry Shum Jr., director Francis Ford Coppola and Vegas entertainers Siegfried and Roy.
The show follows Zark, the ringmaster of an extraordinary circus coming back to life, as he guides the audience in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats.
Pnau‘s Nick Littlemore, who had been asked by Elton to compose the music for Zarkana, reported: Elton simply said, Congratulations. Superb. It couldnt be better when he first heard the show in its entirety. He still hasnt been able to see it first hand, though. His travel schedule and Zarkanas dates never coincided, but when he returns to Las Vegas in February, seeing the show is the first item on his schedule.
