LAS VEGAS -- A performer with a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas slipped and fell on stage, marking the second injury in a week by the circus troupe.
News station KVVU-TV reports that the "Zarkana" show stopped briefly after the performer fell Tuesday night at the Aria hotel-casino.
Production spokeswoman Ann Paladie says the actor was taken to a hospital but has since been released.
It comes after a performer fell Monday during Cirque du Soleil's production of "The Beatles LOVE" at the Mirage hotel-casino.
Cirque du Soleil is known for shows that feature aerialists, acrobats and contortionists. It shuns the traditional use of animals and instead embraces acrobats, music and dance.
