DEATH AT CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: Performer Dies From Fall During Show


Sarah Guyard-Guillot, an artist in “Ka” at MGM Grand and a mother of two young children, was killed Saturday night after a fall from the show’s stage at MGM Grand. The Clark County Coroner’s Office said this afternoon that Guyard-Guillot, 31, was pronounced dead at 11:43 p.m. Saturday at University Medical Center.

No formal cause of death has been determined pending further examination of Guyard-Guillot’s body. She was born in Paris and had spent more than 22 years as an acrobatic performer.

It is the first reported death from an accident onstage in Cirque’s 30-year history.

According to reports from audience members, the incident occurred Saturday night during the latter stages of the production at MGM Grand. Guyard-Guillot was one of the artists suspended by a wire from the show’s vertical stage in the show-closing Final Battle scene.
