Inspired by the concept of infinity and the elegance of water’s pure form, “O” by Cirque du Soleil weaves an aquatic tapestry of artistry, surrealism and theatrical romance in this timeless production.
In this breathtaking, phenomenal aquatic production, anything is possible and the drama of life plays itself out before your very eyes. From the simplest street performance to the most lavish of operas, watch as incredible world-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers including nine Olympians, divers and characters perform in, on, and above water to create a breathtaking experience.
The centerpiece of the show is a 25-foot-deep pool that holds 1.5 million gallons of water. It serves as a stage to showcase high-divers and synchronized swimmers. This stage also gets easily transformed to a solid surface with the help of hydraulics, allowing acrobats, fire dancers, and contortionists to perform.
"O" has a cast of 74 artists from around the world, and is performed in the “O” Theatre, which seats 1,800 people.

Melissa the critic says!
I personally didn't love this show as much as so many other people do. I mean, I get it...it's completely water based and that's impressive but I thought it was completely overpriced. The costumes were beautiful. The music was beautiful. Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing show but not my favorite.
Since its debut in October 1998, "O" has been viewed by more than 17 million guests.
