The newest yet-to-be-titled show, directed by Vincent Paterson, will feature the famous Elvis catalog of songs, re-orchestrated and sung by a group of live female vocalists and a live band. Cirque has access to the old master tapes and has been able to isolate Elvis' voice. "The only male voice you'll hear in the show," says Nadal, "will be that of Elvis."
Current plans call for a mostly biographical structure, involving appearances by characters based on Col. Tom Parker and Priscilla Presley and divided into the various sections of the King's life. This is a fully approved affair by the Elvis camp, so don't expect much of the man's famous dark side. "This is a tribute to Elvis' life," Nadal says, "so we're not going to go there. We're focused on his contributions to the entertainment world." according to Brian Quinn on the FECC Forum.
An earlier news story dated 3 September (also from Brian Quinn) indicated that the title of the show may be "Viva Elvis". Elvis Unlimited recently reported that Cique du Soleil Inc. had registered the domain names: VivaElvis.Com and VivaElvisLasVegas.Com
