O by Cirque du Soleil is an whimsical and visually stunning show that transports audiences into a fantastical world of wonderment and awe with the use stunning acrobatics surrounded by air, fire and, most prominently, water.
“O” is not just the name of the show, it also happens to be the sound you’ll make for the entire 90 minutes of this ethereal production. This aquatic-themed Cirque du Soleil show immerses audiences into a dream world of acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and other marine characters in, on and above a 1.5-million-gallon pool. Considering the dimensions of this unique performance area, it is easy to feel as though you’re in an alternate universe.
It’s important to note the audience is placed just outside the splash zone, so there’s no need to worry about getting wet. Many of the intricate sets descend from the ceiling, often submerging entirely with the performers still attached. Acrobats and gymnasts exhibit gravity-defying stunts and create watery illusions in the pool at center stage.
Each performer has multiple identical costumes they change into throughout the show, so that when they reemerge from underwater stunts, they can appear dry again. A family-friendly show, this mesmerizing performance will leave you breathless and provide great memories for years to come.
