O Theatre, Bellagio
Must be 5 years of age or older
Cirque du Soleil has delighted
audiences all over the world with their unique circus performances
which blend art and acrobatics. Located at the
Bellagio Hotel &
Resort, their long-running show "O" is inspired by the connection
between earth, air, fire, and water.
With "O" Cirque du Soleil has created something never seen before in Las Vegas – a circus performed on water! The name “O” comes from as the French word for water "eau". Pronounced like the letter.
The main feature of the "O" theater is the gigantic pool built into the stage. It contains 1.5 million gallons of water and there is an underwater communication system so the performers won't miss their cues. The stage cost over $100 million to build, and it can be transformed from a bone-dry platform into a pool that's deep enough for high-diving in a matter of seconds.
The underwater theatrics are accompanied by live music, and the orchestra shield themselves behind a glass wall so their instruments don't get wet. A warning to those thinking about buying tickets in the first few rows, you do run the risk of getting splashed!
Before the show begins, a pair of mischievous clowns wander through the audience with life preservers and dysfunctional umbrellas to warm up the crowd (and sometimes get them wet!). Once the curtain is raised, you're treated to a series of breath-taking performances both on the water and in the air. Acrobats, contortionists, swimmers and divers all wearing elaborate make-up and costume will have your eyes jumping from 60-feet in the air to under the water, and then back again! The human torch and fire-dancers provide contrast to the wetter acts, and their tribal dances are borrowed from the exotic island cultures of Samoa and Hawaii.
The stunts performed in "O" are so physically demanding that many of the cast members are not just performers but athletes too. The synchronized swimming and high-diving acts are performed by world-class swimmers.
There's often a lot happening during "O", both on the stage and in the air, the balcony seats provide a great location to take in all the action. "O" is incredibly popular and the best tickets can sell out months in advance. Don't set yourself up for disappointment by missing this show - book your tickets online today!
