LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas is combining its love of mega pop-stars and over-the-top theatrics for a new Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show opening this summer.

Cirque du Soleil CEO Daniel Lamarre announced Thursday that the company’s newest show will be called “Michael Jackson ONE.” The show at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Strip will start preview performances May 23. It will officially premiere June 29.

The show is the second collaboration between the acrobatic company and Jackson’s estate. The first production was the traveling show, “Michael Jackson: Immortal World Tour.”

The title is intended to evoke a central paradox of the king of pop’s multifaceted persona and changing musical styles.
