Lady Gaga wowed her fans Friday night during her Las Vegas residency debut – and even critics were impressed.
From her emotional performance of “Shallow” to a theatrical story line, “Enigma” is being praised for its energy and heart.
Here’s more of what critics are saying about her performance at MGM’s Park Theater Friday:
Billboard’s Andreas Hale said Gaga served “an absolutely delicious smorgasbord of pop music, performance art and fantastic futurism during her 90-minute set that kicked off in true Gaga fashion.”
“Enigma is a full theatrical production with an overarching theme of Lady Gaga seeking to find her inner voice in a narrative that is part ‘Wizard of Oz’ and part ‘Ghost in the Shell’ as Gaga interacted with an artificial lifeform known as ‘Enigma’ on the oversized screens,” Hale continued. “The set pieces were just as grandiose and over-the-top as the performances themselves.”
People’s Mark Gray praised the residency as a “highly energetic show.”
“Simply put, it lived up to the hype,” Gray wrote. “Enigma was very theatrical and very ‘Gaga.'”
E! News’ Corinne Heller called the performance “out of this world!”
