    Reinstatement of KA Battle a Somber Celebration

    It sounded like it would be a celebration. A promotion. Something to generate 30 seconds of footage for the evening news. Look forward, not back and all that. If all followed plan, the climactic battle scene of “Ka” would be back in the show permanently on Friday, after being phased in last week. But Cirque du Soleil wasn’t finished looking back.
