“Nice view from the front row”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

It was a short notice trip, so I was really happy to get the front row seats (section 104, seats 1 and 2) on the day of.

The good: We were in the splash zone, and we got a few drops of water on us. It was great to see the action taking place just feet away from us. Being so close to the action, we were able to see and hear the performers' hearts pounding.

The bad: Being so close to the action, we missed some of the action the took place behind us.

“wonderfull moment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

It was unbelievable !
I saw 4 shows from cirque du soleil and this one really is unique , so poetic , so different , it is really an experience by itself , during this show you will be completely transport to an other planet , you just wouldn't come back !
I also really liked that there is not too much circus stuff like acrobats etc compare to their others show
so if you had one show to see in Vegas , it would be definitely this one , enjoy

“Blew me away”

Amazing staging, great fun, fabulous artists some of the dive scenes are breath taking! Would highly recommend for any trip in Vegas. Go for cocktails in the piano bar first in the Belagio.

“O-MG! One of Cirque's best shows!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Being a Cirque du Soleil groupie I have seen most of their shows. All are excellent (with the possible exception of Zumanity) but 'O', at the Bellagio Hotel is certainly one of the best, behind perhaps only Love, the Beatles show. 'O' has fantastic acrobatics, story, color and live music as you would expect of any Cirque show, but it has something special also. The Stage for 'O' is an integral part of the act - rising and lowering in synchronized dance with the actors and the story. What's really special about this stage is that it is submersed. Yes, that's right, the entire stage is an enormous and deep pool of water. The stage platforms rise from the bottom of the pool to the top, in segments at a time or as a whole depending on what the scene calls for.

The acrobatics and theatrics are tightly integrated with the presence of the water. At times the acrobatics are based on the solid ground of the stage and at times they are integrated with the water. The deep water below the actors and acrobats creates a whole new kind of canvas, opening up a whole new realm of possibility for designing and choreographing acts that would not be possible on solid ground. It is this water below the show that makes it so distinct from all the other Cirque shows.

The color, costumes, lights and sound are the same level you have come to know and expect from Cirque du Soleil, but the possibilities and creativity are beyond the norm. The expertise of these acrobats, divers and dancers is amazing. You just know that there must be a stable of Olympic trainers and athletes pulling all this together.

The theater is one of the smaller Cirque theaters I've been in, so you have a stellar view from any seat in the house. This is an amazing show with spectacular performances and a stage that is absolutely unbelievable. It will go from a deep pool with dancers diving into it from 80 feet above to solid ground with carousel horses and coachmen in a matter of seconds.

And the clown scenes are awesome :-). I'm not usually entertained by clowns, but these guys were funny and very "humane". Very nicely done Cirque!

Tips for viewers: See the show - it's as good a show as you are going to see anywhere. Oh yeah, visit the bathroom before the show - there is no intermission and a lot of water.

I enjoy the shows in vegas. This one is exciting with alot going on. The strength of the performers is outstanding. This show is
affordable and there is always some kind of discount most days.
