MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL SPECIAL EVENTS
ONE NIGHT FOR ONE DROP
One Night for ONE DROP is an original, one-night-only production scheduled for Friday, March 20 at The Beatles LOVE Theatre inside The Mirage. The event will feature artists from each of the eight Las Vegas Cirque du Soleil productions.
The third Annual One Night for ONE DROP, held around World Water Day, is being created and directed by Mukhtar O.S. Mukhtar for the second consecutive year. The evening will feature Cirque du Soleil artists when they bring together the message of “ONE THOUGHT, ONE WORLD,” as a metaphor of time and its effect on society, encouraging us to create the world in which we want to live.
ONE DROP, a non-profit organization created by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté, works to secure water access by implementing integrated and unique water projects around the world and to reverse the growing water crisis by raising awareness for water-related issues.
