Celine Dion’s “A New Day…” Show in Las Vegas

Keyboardist and synthesizer programmer Yves Frulla has a background in classical piano and is an acclaimed accompanist, having worked with a number of renowned artists in the pop music industry. A native Canadian, Yves Frulla has been working with Celine Dion since 1990 and moved to Las Vegas in 2002 as part of her famous show “A New Day…,” which had a landmark five-year run at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace.

Announced in the summer of 2002, “A New Day…” was an extraordinary gamble at the time. Celine Dion had effectively announced her decision to stop touring and had, instead, invited her fans to join her at her new Las Vegas show. Created by famous director Franco Dragone, it was a completely unique blend of music, dance, theater and technical innovation. Featuring an artistic collection of stories, fantastical images, and recurring characters, as well as the largest indoor LED screen in the United States, “A New Day…” was a completely unprecedented spectacle and took audiences by storm.

The show evolved continuously during its five year stint in order to keep things new and exciting for returning audiences, incorporating new songs, new designs, and new special effects. The show played to almost 3 million fans during its five-year run and grossed more than $400 million through its 717 performances, enjoying a level of success that had never been seen before.
