Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's twenty-fourth production opened Halloween 2008 at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Directed by Serge Denoncourt, this is the first Cirque show built around a specific performer -- StageMagician Criss Angel, who hit the big time with his [=TV=] show ''Mindfreak''. As such, this is also Cirque's first show to be based around magic and illusion, with their grandiose production values providing a gothic-inspired atmosphere for his tricks.
