Few people get to see how the music and lighting come together in The Beatles LOVE, behind the scenes of the vertical stage at KÀ or get up close with the Chinese pole performers in Mystère. But for one week, Cirque du Soleil, the circus and street performance company that has grown to a worldwide phenomenon with seven shows in Las Vegas, gives fans a chance to experience just how these shows come together during Cirque Week, through Dec. 8.

Every day features a different behind-the-scenes experience that can be packaged with one of the shows for a compare and contrast. “We designed Cirque Week three years ago,” says Lou D’Angeli, Cirque du Soleil’s senior director of marketing and public relations. “Our fans really want to get more interactive and engaged.”

The week started Dec. 1 with “O”—Behind the Water, which gave only 100 guests a chance to see the water stage of the show above and below. Fans saw the props used in the show at the Bellagio and received a souvenir after the backstage tour. Another set tour takes place Dec. 2 at the LOVE Sound and Set Demonstration, where guests can get a whole new perspective of The Beatles’ music. The tour at The Mirage includes a look at the 6,300 custom-made speakers in the theater as well as some of the scenes performed in the show.
