Las Vegas, February 21, 2013 – The Estate of Michael Jackson and Cirque du Soleil today unveiled that Michael Jackson ONE™ will open and take residency exclusively at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino this summer. Directed by Jamie King, Michael Jackson ONE will start its preview performances on May 23, 2013 and have its official premiere on June 29, 2013. This entirely new show is the second creative project to be developed between Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson after the top grossing Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, currently playing arenas in Europe as it travels the world.



The show
Michael Jackson ONE is a state-of-the-art visual and audio experience creating a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius. Guided and inspired by his music, four misfits set out on a transformative adventure. By journey's end, they will personify Michael's agility, courage, playfulness and love.

The name
Michael Jackson believed that all people are unique and equal, regardless of race or culture. His message was one of unity, harmony and hope for a better world. At once evocative and enigmatic, the name Michael Jackson ONE also presents a paradox: Michael was a multifaceted artist who strove to fuse together various musical styles and art forms. It is a fitting title for a unifying journey into the world of the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.

“This is our second project with the Estate of Michael Jackson which confirms how stimulating this creative partnership was meant to be”, said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil. “Michael Jackson is an all-time phenomenal artist, both timeless and contemporary. As a creative challenge, this project is the ultimate. Through the use of cutting edge technology, we will produce a new Cirque du Soleil theatrical experience not only respectful of Michael’s legacy but also very distinctive from Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour.”

“We are guided by Michael’s own philosophy in all that we do. In preparing for this production, Michael’s message to the cast and crew for his This Is It concerts was foremost in our minds. He counseled them on what the audience experience should be: ‘They want wonderful experiences. We want to take them places that they’ve never been before. We want to show them talent like they’ve never seen before. We’re putting love back into the world to remind the world that love is important. WE’RE ALL ONE. That is the message. ’ We feel the same, and that is what we are delivering both to lifelong fans and those just discovering his artistic genius with Michael Jackson ONE,” stated John Branca and John McClain, Co-Executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson.

Chuck Bowling, Mandalay Bay’s president and COO, said, “The partnership with Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson represents an extraordinary moment for Mandalay Bay. We are in the midst of a major transformation at this resort, introducing a new set of experiences for our guests. Michael Jackson ONE is truly the crown jewel in that transformation and we cannot wait to share this very special production with the world.”

Along with Jamie King—who started his career as a dancer on Michael’s Dangerous World Tour and also directed the arena touring show Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil—, Michael Jackson ONE will bring together the creative minds behind the Michael Jackson Estate, John Branca and John McClain, and the diverse talents of the following creators (creators’ bios are available on Cirque du Soleil’s press room at http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/en/press/kits/shows/michael-jackson-one.aspx):

It is well written and effective also it is very informative. I really feel so good after reading your content AS I like to share <a href="http://www.helmutriedl.com/">Live music photography</a> is all about catching when, encapsulating the energy, enjoyment, elegance or pain of the songs without being able to listen to a single observe. This is much easier said than done, as limitations of space and light can really restrict what a photographer is able to accomplish, but there are ways in which you can improve your possibilities of getting those show interpreting photos. These days, you will get some tips for capturing live songs and more than 60 live songs pictures to help motivate you.

Thanks for sharing.

I've been studying Michael for a long enough time to say I know something about it. As a Dartmouth College scholar, I decided to write a series about. This web site will be most enjoyable. Look for my work through justsheetmusic.com. Susan Louise Darnell susanldarnell@gmail.com. I'm open for giving introductory remarks at any event that is promoting Jackson's future. 413-539-1694 Performance Talks To The Public

The world has their opinions on who they thought MJ was. But, I didn't live with him and don't believe all the garbage, that went on in his personal life. I miss him deeply and knew when, I seen him do the moon walk that he, would be famous. Only, because of my own dancing experience. God Bless the ones, that meet him and are sharing with the world and person, family of his. I know MJ, would be very proud of all that Love him now and forever. I believe he, is watching up above some where like all that have gone before him. I can't wait to met up with him some day my self when, I go. The most important things to him were the children of this world and after. I'm proud to be a Canada. He, would of loved to perform again in our country. I miss you MJ.
Love Kelly Schneider Ottawa,on.

I like michael Jackson

I contacted his company after Thriller was released: As a DJ, we have to request the owner to use his/her song in public. I used it to open my Haunted Houses so the monsters and the hundreds waiting in line knew the doors were opening. I loved his performances and songs and talent. When he died: I contacted President Obama/The Jackson Family and told them to start an investigation to prove he was silenced by the power on this planet in an attempt to STOP "THIS IS IT" from being performed so the world would not hear the concerns about the power folks are destroying our planet. I was correct, Michaels doctor killed him, he was paid to do it.... I just purchased his DVD, but it has a problem with the center camera, the cable had a defect and sounds bad, hurting the performance recording. I am searching for a clean, good copy without this problem: myshieldcorp us please contact me soon. Marshall
