What immediately comes to mind when you hear someone exclaim "Oh!?" Do you wait for some kind of follow-up; a signal that the person who expressed it will expound upon something he or she just discovered? Or do you let yourself drip into a world without limits - a theatrical encounter with the possibilities and symbols of water: calm and nurturing, playful and sustaining, unpredictable and merciless?

Most will be the former - unknowing, unseeing... but for you, a fan of Cirque du Soleil, you then are the latter and your thoughts will have become submerged in Cirque du Soleil's aquatic production of "O", at the Bellagio. For you the mere utterance of the show's title conjurers up a barrage of chaotic images, spectacular performances, and heart- wrenching melodies. You've leapt into a world without limits, dove into a tribute to the magic of the theater - from the simplest street performance to the most lavish of operas - and plunged into the wonder, terror, and joy of "O" where anything is possible!

An Intr"O"duction

    On October 19, 1998, the red curtain whisked away for the "first" time and 1800 patrons watched in awe as the stresses of every-day life ebbed away and were replaced with the dreamlike world of "O". In celebration of the show's 15th Anniversary, come with us now as we dive into Cirque du Soleil's watery world...

      "When we started to work on "O", we were really encouraged to dream large-scale. Steve Wynn wanted a show on a stage the size of a football field, on which guests at the Bellagio could windsurf, too! Of course, eventually, we had to work within the realm of the possible, and make decisions. But the show is still a big experience." - Gilles Ste-Croix (Spectaculara)

    Our story of "O" has somewhat a familiar beginning. At first glance, "O" is nothing more than another Cirque du Soleil production inside a fancy theater built to specifications for a hotel project on the Las Vegas strip. When you take a second glance, "O" becomes much, much more. Every aspect surrounding the creation is finely tuned; detailed to exactness. It seems almost inconceivable that within a $1.6 billion dollar hotel resides a production never before attempted - never before imagined even... until Cirque gave it a try.
