Sometimes I think Las Vegas needs another nickname, perhaps Cirque du Nevada, Soleil City, or the American Cirque du Soleil Consulate. Seriously, there are currently seven Cirque productions in residence in Vegas and they play no favorites with regards to casino and resort companies. These shows are works of contemporary live action decadence and they are a natural fit with the over-the-top motif that is Sin City. These shows have even helped push the limit on the Vegas strip, at least certainly Cirque du Soleil “O” has (which is quite a daunting task).
Cirque du Soleil “O” has been performing at the Bellagio since 1998. While now thousands of tourists flood the O Theatre to enjoy the show every week, there was a time when not too many people were sure this high-production value show would ever make it to the stage.
Well, perhaps stage is the wrong word. I think pool is a far more appropriate term, for Cirque du Soleil “O” is the premier aquatic production in Las Vegas, placing a 1.5 million-gallon tank in the middle of a theater built to resemble a 14th century opera house. This pool, like any other in Sin City, is not your neighbor’s in-ground pool. The pool is filled with man-made sandbars, thousands of water sprouts, and performers who actually make synchronized swimming look cool with elaborate dance/swim/dive numbers while aerialists perform overhead.
The show has become just as much a spectacle just its unique stage as it has for its trade mark contemporary Cirque performance. In fact, there are even O tours of the facility for those who are truly in awe of the production.
Cirque du Soleil “O” has performances scheduled Wednesday through Sunday this and every week. Find your Cirque du Soleil O tickets at OnlineSeats if your search takes you to the secondary ticket market. We have great seats to the O Theater at great prices.
