Cirque du Soleil to resume Vegas show after death

LAS VEGAS (AP) —
Cirque du Soleil will resume performances of its show “Ka” in Las Vegas
on Tuesday night, 17 days after an acrobat fell about 90 feet to her
death in its closing scene.

But troupe spokeswoman Renee-Claude
Menard says in a news release that the show will resume without the
final aerial battle scene that resulted in the June 29 death of Sarah
Guillot-Guyard.

She says the decision to resume the show was made
after consultation with the production's artists and staff, and Tuesday
night's show will be dedicated to the late performer's memory.

The
battle scene act will be replaced with a “dressing-ritual” scene that
maintains both the story line of the production and its 90-minute
length.

Coroner's officials have ruled the 31-year-old Guillot-Guyard's death an accident.
