Mirage to be Renovated Says MGM

MGM Mirage on Tuesday said it planned a major facelift of its Mirage casino resort, including new restaurants, a nightclub and a Cirque du Soleil production featuring music of The Beatles.

[ Chief Operating Officer Scott Sibella ] declined to say how much the transformation would cost, but noted that the resort would be able to increase room rates.

Although The Mirage will retain its tropical theme -- and famous fish tank in its lobby -- it is betting that a more contemporary feel in its restaurants, a trendy nightclub and a "more realistic" volcano outside its entrance will appeal to its core business of repeat customers and attract new ones.

The casino hopes to complete the work by the opening next summer of a Cirque du Soleil theatrical production which Sibella called "icing on the cake."
