The last performance by Siegfried and Roy took place Feb. 28 and was the focus of a “20/20” report.
That final farewell marked the end of a Las Vegas phenomenon. The pair had appeared at the Mirage Hotel for more than 13 years and given 5,000 performances before Horn was critically injured by one of his tigers in 2003.
Their brief return to the stage took place at the Bellagio and raised a reported $12 million for the new Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas, which will treat brain disorders.
Montecore, the white tiger who effectively ended Siegfried and Roy’s career, was part of the show. The cat was used during Siegfried & Roy’s signature tiger production, appearing between the two magicians.
