"O" is not just the name of the show, but also the shape your mouth will take for the entire 90 minutes you're gawking over this production. The wettest Cirque du Soleil show of all, "O" at Bellagio immerses audiences into a dream world of acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and an array of other aquatic characters in, on and above a 1.5-million gallon pool. It's kinda like that one time you drank a little too much cough syrup and went swimming in your neighbor's pool – but way cooler.
Don't freak out, the audience is out of the splash zone – but the daredevils (who are clearly moonlighting as performers) show off their gravity-defying stunts and create illusions with the giant pool that doubles as a stage. Considering the dimensions of this unique performance area, it is easy to feel as though you're in an alternate universe in this super cool theater.
Fun fact: each performer has several identical custumes that they change into throughout the show... how else do you think they re-appear from their watery plunges bone-dry? You'll ooh, you'll aah, you'll wonder how in the h-e-double hockey sticks they did that. This show is perfect for just about everybody; unless you're looking for a rave… then this show is definitely not for you. But there's one thing we can guarantee, you're going to love the way we "O."
