March 22 will be a rare day on the Strip. There will only be one Cirque du Soleil show that day, not seven. But it should be a doozy.
As many as 180 performers from the Las Vegas Cirque titles will pool their resources on World Water Day to stage a special benefit for One Drop, the clean water advocacy foundation founded by Cirque's head, Guy Laliberte.
"One Night for One Drop" in the Bellagio's "O" theater will sell for at least $1,500 for a single ticket, with as many as 50 packages combining various perks and parties going for as much as $250,000.
Earlier this year, Laliberte promised "We reinvented circus, and in Vegas we would like to reinvent fundraising night."
