Last week when I was in Las Vegas I wasn’t sure what show to see. I love the Cirque shows, but I’ve seen them all and Celine wasn’t performing so I ran into the promoters of a new show at Ceasar’s Palace called Absinthe. Not only did they sell me on why I should see Absinthe at Ceasar’s Palace, but they also gave me complimentary tickets so that I could share the show with all of you here. Feel free to leave a comment or any Absinthe Las Vegas Reviews below.
Absinthe the show at Ceasar’s Palace is a spoof of a Cirque De Soliel show. Although they do have amazing acrobatic and dance acts in the show, they tie in a ton of raunchy X rated humor, traditional burlesque dancing and singing as well as a ton of actual audience participation. The show can run anywhere from 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 45 minutes depending on the acts, audience participation and how much fun everyone is having. The show is set up in a tent outside of Ceasar’s Palace and the stage is a circular platform that rises and lowers.
The seating style is arena where everyone sits on very uncomfortable wooden chairs in a circle around the platform stage. The walls are covered in pictures and random trinkets that makes you think of the movie Moulin Rouge and they have a bar which sells a ton of different themed drinks including Lucent Absinthe. The lighting definitely fits the seductive and erotic theme of the show, and I love the opening and consistent green theme to stick with the Green Fairy which is one of the most well known characteristics and nicknames of absinthe.
Absinthe Las Vegas starts out with a contortionist and acrobat names Vladimir who comes home to his house and prepares a shot of absinthe for himself. All of the sudden he begins his journey through the show and performs the first routine of the night which is him stacking chairs and performing acrobatics on them. Not only is his routine insane, but he does a press handstand at the very top of the tent just before it’s time for the first burlesque act to come out of the roof and perform a song as the Green Fairy.
This is Vladimir’s intro and the next video is the chair routine.
Absinthe Las Vegas is an extremely erotic and seductive show with X rated humor, incredibly hot performers and everything you could want from a show in Las Vegas. The ring master makes fun of the entire audience, Penny tells off beat jokes and they even have an impromptu lesbian surprise with two random audience members. If you’re looking for a cirque de soliel styled show but that has all of the sin that you hope to find in Las Vegas, Absinthe at Ceasar’s Palace is perfect for you. Tickets to absinthe are well worth the money and although the chairs are uncomfortable and the drinks are overpriced, you will love the show. I highly recommend buying Absinthe Tickets at Ceasar’s Palace and would probably go back to see the show again since it will change nightly because of the audience participation and the ringmaster. If you’re looking for a new show that is a bit different but is still something you would expect from Las Vegas, buy tickets to Absinthe at Ceasar’s Palace and you will get everything from comedy to singing and some incredible cirque de soliel styled performances. I highly recommend Absinthe Las Vegas.
This is the roller skating routine without the end performance which was absolutely insane. You’ll have to see Absinthe Las Vegas to find out what they do!
