Soleil to shine at casino

Canadian troupe sets sights on Singapore

Cirque de Soleil’s first resident show in Asia will be in Singapore if MGM and CapitaLand are successful in their bid to run the proposed $3 billion Caesars casino and resort in Marina Bay.

Four of Cirque’s five permanent shows are in MGM-run casinos in Las Vegas; Florida’s Walt Disney World houses the other.

Bidding for Singapore’s first casino closes Wednesday. Four major gaming companies are in the running — Harrah’s, MGM Mirage, Las Vegas Sands and Malaysia’s Genting Group. Winner should be announced in June.

Meanwhile, the Singapore Tourism Board revealed that bidding for a second casino, on the resort island of Sentosa, will open April 28 and close Oct. 10. Winning bid for the $2 billion project is expected to be announced before the end of the year.
