Cirque du Soleil will launch its first live action thriller, R.U.N, this Autumn at Luxor in Las Vegas.

The show will take guests through a cinematic story utilising the brand’s trademark stunts and acrobatics.

Daniel Lamarre, president and chief executive of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, said: “R.U.N is very different from the other shows within the Cirque du Soleil portfolio.

“We will reinvent the concept of a thriller, drawing inspiration from action movies and graphic novels. This action-packed live performance happening in front of and around the audience, will offer a new form of entertainment to a more diversified Las Vegas guest. We are really excited to bring this unique and edgy concept to Luxor.”

The show marks the 10th partnership between Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts International.

R.U.N will begin performances on October 24 with performance on Wednesday to Sunday. Tickets are on sale now and trade commissionable rates will be available soon.
