Cirque du Soleil: O
Cirque du Soleil O at the Bellagio achieves a high water amongst Vegas Cirque du Soleil shows… which is saying a lot, as the artsy circus troupe has become a Sin City entertainment empire with an unprecedented and diverse collection of imaginative shows running at various resorts on The Strip.
The diverse list of Vegas Cirque du Soleil shows include a mysterious Criss Angel-headlined magic spectacle, an epic battle of good vs. evil told through martial arts and acrobatics, tributes to The Beatles and Michael Jackson with imaginative visuals that match the timeless music, and a sensual extravaganza themed around all aspects of human sexuality. But none of the amazing and unique Cirque shows playing in Sin City are quite like the wet and wild aquatic spectacle O at The Bellagio.
The visually astonishing Cirque du Soleil O features a one of a kind stage… a 25 foot deep, 1.5 million gallon water tank with hydraulic platforms that move in and out across the top, allowing the cast to perform in, above, and on the water. The amazing stage was built in service of the diverse group of performers, including world-class high divers falling from impossible heights, synchronized swimmers performing beautiful underwater ballets, and death-defying acrobats skillfully executing dizzying feats over the open water. When the hydraulic platform swings over the tank, fire-dancers and contortionists take the stage to round out the show.
Audiences view much of O through water, which creates a dream-like and surreal atmosphere unique to the show. The custom-built theater is designed to resemble a European-style opera house, and the stunningly crafted costumes and colorful makeup worn by the cast, combined with the mysterious and surreal atmosphere of the production, make O a visual feast that audiences will not soon forget.
O at the Bellagio, with its one of a kind aquatic stage, dream-like atmosphere, and diverse cast of performers, makes a splash as an unforgettable Vegas Cirque du Soleil show that will sweep audiences away on waves of imagination and visual splendor.
