Hans Zimmer Joins the ONE NIGHT FOR ONE DROP Creative Team

One Night for One Drop 2019, presented by MGM Resorts International, is pleased to welcome award-winning film score composer Hans Zimmer to the "O" Theatre stage as he presents three brilliant compositions, including a modified piece from the blockbuster hit "Interstellar," specially adapted for the one-night-only performance. In addition to Zimmer's exclusive renditions, One Night for One Drop also will welcome celebrated Strip headliner Blue Man Group, internationally recognized choreographers Andrew Winghart and Alexander Ekman, and world-renowned creatives Keone and Mari, who all orchestrated breathtaking pieces to artistically echo this year's inspirational theme of man and nature.

With a career spanning more than three decades, Hans Zimmer has composed music for more than 150 films. His best-known works include soundtracks for "The Pirates of the Caribbean" series, "Interstellar," "Inception," "The Dark Knight Trilogy" and "The Lion King," for which he won an Academy Award for Best Original Score. Zimmer will perform alongside the talented Cirque du Soleil performers in three different acts as this year's performance features a unique aquatic theme that incorporates water in ways audience members have never seen before.

Imagined by Cirque du Soleil, the never-before-presented performance stars Michael Duffy, a former Cirque du Soleil performer and current artistic coach for the Cirque du Soleil at Sea project, who plays main character "Everyman," created to symbolize that humanity can be represented by one entity. Everyman's counterpart, "Drop," is portrayed by Sabine Nehls, a 12-year-old prodigy, Cirque du Soleil newcomer and "World of Dance" finalist. Her character is more than just a girl though, as a wise guide she far surpasses her tiny stature, leading Everyman and the audience toward greater empathy and the betterment of the world. Duffy and Nehls are led by André Kasten and Leah Moyer, the co-writers and directors of this year's show and the masterminds behind the performance's heartwarming storyline.

In addition to enjoying the one-night-only presentation and to get further involved, guests will have the opportunity to bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences and extravagant items during a premier live auction. Sprinkled throughout six lots, the auction items include a McLaren 570S Spider, limited-edition Audemars Piguet timepiece, private jet to a secluded villa in Turks & Caicos, Serengeti safari-living experience in Tanzania, Château St. Tropez getaway and a journey aboard The World luxury sea residence. All funds raised throughout the evening will directly assist with One Drop's global mission as well as educational efforts throughout the Las Vegas valley.
