FREE: Sirens of TI

The Sirens of TI is a free nightly show provided by the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. The show focuses around a group of sensual and tempting Sirens engaging with a band of renegade pirates. After capturing an overboard pirate and luring his captain and crew into Sirens’ Cove, the Sirens quickly find themselves in a battle with the pirates they intended to toy around with. Cannons are soon firing from the pirate’s ship, The Bull, while the Sirens use their power over the ocean to engulf The Bull and sink it to the bottom of the sea.

The show’s not over yet though, as the pirates climb aboard The Song and a second battle ensues. As the pirates finally realize they’re no match for the Sirens, they decide to surrender and The Song turns into a 21st century party.

History

The resort opened with the free “Buccaneer Bay” show in a large man-made lake fronting the resort along the Las Vegas Strip. Presented several times nightly with a large cast of stunt performers, the show depicted the landing and subsequent sacking of a Caribbean village by pirates, serving to attract gamblers from the strip and into the casino after each show in the same fashion as its predecessor, the Wynn-conceived volcano fronting The Mirage casino. Notable special effects included a full-scale, manned pirate ship that sailed nearly the full width of the property, a gas-fired “powder magazine” explosion, pyrotechnics, and the sinking to the bottom of the sailing ship “Brittania” along with its captain. In 2003, “Buccaneer Bay” was replaced with “Sirens’ Cove” and the new show, “The Sirens of TI” utilizing many of the technical elements of its predecessor. The live, free show was intended to appeal more to adults by including singing, dancing, audio-visual effects, bare-chested pirates and attractive women in the large outdoor show produced by Kenny Ortega.
