I went with a group of nine friends. Our seats were on the balcony in the EE section. The seats may seem like bad seats if you look at the Cirque's seating map on their website, but that is not the case. To be honest, I can't say that there would be a bad seat in the place. From our view, we were able to see everything.
The show itself was amazing. I have seen two other Cirque shows, and they do not disappoint. The show starts off (like the other shows) with two clowns playing with the audience. They basically are warming up the audience. The show begins with a woman coming out of the smoke from the ceiling. It was very beautiful, and the show never stops from there. Since this show deals with a lot of water performances, the seats in the balcony are the best.
If you haven't seen a Cirque show, definitely see this one. OR, if there is a show near you, go see it - you will not be disappointed.

When we entered the Bellagio we were overwhelmed with the elegance and beauty of the setting. This is the perfect setting for this show. "O" is so named because of eau, the French word meaning water. This show features breathtaking acrobatics over water. The pool is constantly changing shapes throughout the performance. I had never before seen a Cirque show, but this one was unbelievable.
This show ranged from clowns (not the annoying type) to pirates, from water to an act with fire. There were so many things to look at, you never wanted to blink in case you might miss something. The costumes, music, and physical feats were unreal. I was truly captivated by the performances and by the beauty of the entire experience.
I am really happy that we had the $125 seats—they were perfect. They allowed a great view of the entire show. They were located just below the balcony section of seating toward stage right. The entire stage was visible from our seats and we were able to see some of the audience encounters as well.
Needless to say, I would definitely recommend this show. The water aspect of it made it distinctively original. I loved every minute of it. If you are looking for a splashy, acrobatic show, check out "O".

When we returned to the Bellagio, there was a long line of people waiting for tickets and computers were still down. Nevertheless, with our confirmation number in hand, we purchased our tickets. I thought that the show should be awesome at that price and after all that difficulty. Our spirits were lifted somewhat by an extremely nice group of security people who permitted us to go in and sit down. We were very early, but enjoyed sitting in the theater, which is more impressive than many in Vegas. It was interesting to me that they sell popcorn. When the show finally was about to begin, there were some strange-looking people in costume circulating around the theater. Two mimes came out. We thought they were rather rude and in the spotlight too long. We wanted the "real" show to begin.
When the curtain rose, there was activity everywhere and the opening was dynamic. A stage of water that can be controlled is unique. (O is eau, the French word for water.) The acrobatics were amazing. The athletes do precision dives, jumps, tosses, etc. It is Cirque du Soleil, after all. However, my husband began to doze when the two mimes came out again. He has seen Mystere and thinks it's better. We had expected so much from O that it just wasn't as electric as we had hoped. Pardon the pun. Maybe you'll expect less and enjoy it more.

The drawback to this show is that they seem to me to be relying far too much on the gimmick that is the stage. Once the initial "ooh"s and "aah"s are out of the way, the show does not have any of the humor, warmth, charm, or beauty of "Mystere". With only one or two exceptions, the performances themselves do not compare with those of "Mystere". Particularly tiresome are the amazingly unfunny "clowns" that appear between performers, apparently to bore us to sleep for an agonizingly long time while the real performers are changing costumes. I actually dozed off a few times, and caught others around me doing the same. We read reviews that said "O" was not as goos as "Mystere", but we figured that with the amazing stage set, the location in the swanky Bellagio, and the astronomical ticket price, it had to be at least as good if not better that it's sister show. Please, believe me when I tell you that "Mystere" deserves to be the standard-bearer for Cirque du Soliel in Las Vegas, while "O" is a big ZERO.
NOT RECOMMENDED unless you have time and money to burn and have trouble sleeping. But if you must, tickets are $110 and $90 online at link or 888-488-7111, shows are at 7:30 and 10:30 with no shows on Wednesday or Thursday.
