Cirque du Soleil to resume Vegas show after death
Jul. 15, 2013
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Cirque du Soleil will resume performances of its show "Ka" in Las Vegas on Tuesday, 17 days after a French-born acrobat fell to her death in its closing scene.
Troupe spokeswoman Renee-Claude Menard says the show will resume without the aerial battle scene that resulted in the June 29 death of Sarah Guillot-Guyard.
Menard says the decision to resume the show was made after consultation with the production's artists and staff, and Tuesday's show will be dedicated to the late performer's memory.
Coroner's officials have ruled the 31-year-old Guillot-Guyard's death an accident.
