For our final night in Vegas, my best friend and I desperately wanted to see "O". This show is a Cirque Du Soleil production at the Bellagio Casino. Due to the reports that tickets were difficult to get, we ordered ours ahead of time from the website www.bellagiolasvegas.com. The tickets had three price ranges: $99, $125, and $150. We selected tickets in the $125 section. As a side note, tickets for "O" go on sale only so far in advance and you may have to keep checking to secure tickets for the dates of your trip. Also, "O" is only performed Wednesdays through Sundays, with Mondays and Tuesdays being dark.
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".
