Cirque du Soleil introduced its latest creation at the MGM Grand hotel-casino Wednesday, a $165 million spectacle and theater that company officials think will usher in a new era of stage production.

The newest Cirque du Soleil venture was named "KA" and will be housed in a cavernous theater that resembles Zion, the underground city in the hit movie "The Matrix."

"It's not about creating a new show," director Robert Lepage said at a news conference inside the 1,951-seat theater. "It's about creating a new world."

The new show that begins Nov. 26 comes replete with pyrotechnics, puppets, graceful martial arts sequences and the use of multimedia, including video.
