Surprisingly Excellent.... To be fair, the last time I saw a Cirque show it was in NYC and I was 10...i didn't appreciate it. Things have certainly changed. To call the show visually impressive is a massive understatement. It was easily one of the coolest things I've ever seen. The stage/pool moved seamlessly throughout each act. The performers were terrific, especially the divers and trapeeze girl...and I still can't figure out how they did the fire thing. The only real downside were the clowns...i didn't find them particularly funny or necessary. I would definitely recommend putting it on the "to do" list for your Vegas vacation.
Expensive but worth it.
I brought two friends to O, and after the show they couldn't stop talking about it. Some of the effects are extremely cool (I'm still not entirely sure how they did some of them). Great acrobatics. The theatre itself is really amazing (as far as the stage/pool goes), though I would say that Le Reve's venue is better.
There seems to be a lot of comparison between O and Le Reve as the some of the show elements are similar. I would say see both. They are both worth the money.
top three cirques in the world!. this is one of the top three best cirque shows in the world!! trust me, i've flown to spain and france just to see the others. ...o is a water show. know that you can get wet if you sit too close to the performance. ...yes, this includes the balcony, as some performers may wander.
A bargain. We spent $93 apiece on tickets to sit in the second row of the center balcony. A *tiny* portion of my husband's view was obstructed by the guardrail. The balcony is really the way to go with this show. The entire time (except for the intermission act of clowns) I marveled at the choreography, the special effects, and the athleticism of the performers - they were all Olympic-caliber divers, gymnasts, and sychronized swimmers. Looking back, I would have spent triple the amount I did for this show - it was the highlight of our Vegas vacation. The *only* con was the crowd - many late arrivals, people munching on popcorn like they're at the local cineplex, and tons of children, even at the 10:30 PM show!!! O isn't overtly sexual, but definitely erotic and at times scary. It's way too mature for children.
Great Service. Ended up at this bar around 2 in the morning... bartender was great, super-attentive and fun. Ended up meeting Robbie Williams and a friend of his and hanging out with them until around 6 am. Good time!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Twisting acrobatics and awe-inspiring human feats performed in and above water mesmerize audiences in this Cirque du Soleil show.
'O' my gosh!. This show was amazing! The amount of effects was unbelievable. One minute there are people swimming in a pool in the stage floor and the next they are appearing to walk on water! A must-see when you are in Vegas...don't sit too close because the front rows do get a little wet! Absoulutely LOVED it!
