LAS VEGAS (AP) - Cirque du Soleil will resume performances of its show "Ka" in Las Vegas on Tuesday night, 17 days after an acrobat fell about 90 feet to her death in its closing scene.

But troupe spokeswoman Renee-Claude Menard says in a news release that the show will resume without the final aerial battle scene that resulted in the June 29 death of Sarah Guillot-Guyard.

She says the decision to resume the show was made after consultation with the production's artists and staff, and Tuesday night's show will be dedicated to the late performer's memory.

The battle scene act will be replaced with a "dressing-ritual" scene that maintains both the story line of the production and its 90-minute length.

Coroner's officials have ruled the 31-year-old Guillot-Guyard's death an accident.
