Cirque performer falls during ‘Zarkana’ show day after performer falls at ‘Love’ dress rehearsal

A Cirque du Soleil performer fell Tuesday night — just one day after a performer at another Cirque production fell during a dress rehearsal Monday.

The Tuesday fall happened during a 9:30 p.m. performance of “Zarkana” at the Aria, and the performer was taken to University Medical Center per the company’s standard safety protocol, spokeswoman Ann Paladie said. She did not explain the extent of injuries but said the performer is in stable condition.

“Zarkana” was stopped briefly after the fall, but Paladie said the show resumed shortly after.

On Monday, a performer for The Beatles “Love” fell about 20 feet during an invite-only dress rehearsal and was also taken to UMC and stabilized. The rehearsal featured the many changes “Love” will include in its new version, which will debut to the public Thursday.
