In celebration of its 20th anniversary in Las Vegas, Cirque du Soleil is offering fans a glimpse behind the curtain with the return of its Cirque Week series of events.

The fourth year of the annual celebration is Nov. 9-16, during which each of the Strip’s eight resident shows will host a series of events ranging from backstage access and performance classes to ticket packages and more.

Options include a live fire demonstration from the inferno acts of “O” at Bellagio, choreography lessons from “Michael Jackson One” at Mandalay Bay and an up-close look at the intricate Thierry Mugler costumes from “Zumanity,” which celebrates its 10th anniversary at New York-New York today.

Customizable ticket packages and events range from $100 for a two-show package to $585 for tickets to all eight Cirque productions in Las Vegas.

To purchase tickets and view a full schedule of events, visit the Cirque Week website.
