The Beatles LOVE: About the Creators
Cirque du Soleil presents the ultimate Beatles tribute with the incredible, The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage Hotel & Casino. This kaleidoscopic production set entirely to Beatles music is the brainchild of Cirque du Soleil founder, Guy Laliberté and legendary Beatles guitarist, George Harrison. Ideas for the show were thrown around between Laliberté and Harrison in the year 2000, and by 2003 Laliberté was able to get plans for the show in motion.
Laliberté teamed up with legendary Beatles producer, Sir George Martin to create the vivid masterpiece. Sir George Martin, often referred to as “the fifth Beatle,” brought his son, Giles Martin, on board with The Beatles LOVE team that included Chantal Tremblay, Neil Aspinall, Dominic Champagne, and others.
In June of 2006, preview performances began and finally on June 30th, 2006, the show saw its grand opening. In attendance were Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, along with Yoko Ono, Cynthia Lennon, Julian Lennon, and Oliva and Dhani Harrison. This Beatles "family reunion" was the biggest one since the band's break-up in 1970.
The Beatles LOVE continues to amaze audiences at the Mirage Hotel & Casino. The Mirage also features a plague in loving memory of former Beatles members, John Lennon and George Harrison.
