“O” is not just the name of the show, it also happens to be the sound you’ll make for the entire 90 minutes of this ethereal production. This aquatic-themed Cirque du Soleil show immerses audiences into a dream world of acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and other marine characters in, on and above a 1.5-million-gallon pool.
Considering the dimensions of this unique performance area, it is easy to feel as though you’re in an alternate universe. It’s important to note the audience is placed just outside the splash zone, so there’s no need to worry about getting wet. Many of the intricate sets descend from the ceiling, often submerging entirely with the performers still attached.
Acrobats and gymnasts exhibit gravity-defying stunts and create watery illusions in the pool at center stage. And if you’re wondering how the mystifying stunts are pulled off, purchase VIP tickets for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Before the show starts, you’ll be invited to a reception with champagne and hors d’oeuvres which you’ll meet the show’s cast. After you’ve been acquainted with the performers, they’ll take you on a guided video tour, where you’ll learn how the cast disappears into the water and where they go after they take the plunge.
But the VIP treatment doesn’t stop there. After the reception, you’ll be escorted to your own personal VIP suite where you’ll watch the show with a free bottle of wine or champagne. Get your VIP tickets to O by Cirque du Soleil inside Bellagio Las Vegas, you won’t regret it. Each performer has multiple identical costumes they change into throughout the show, so that when they reemerge from underwater stunts, they can appear dry again.
