Cirque du Soleil Tips (20)

O by Cirque du Soleil: Cirque du Soleil's O

I'd heard so much about this show before the trip that I was afraid it would not live up to the hype. But it did. The acrobatics were amazing. There's so much going on at once its impossible to see it all in one show, but definitely give it a shot.

One piece of advice: get the best seats you can. I bypassed the floor level seats in favor of the lower deck after being assured I had great seats. I did not. I was one of the back rows of this section and had trouble seeing a lot of what was going on. Its a $25 difference in price between the floor seats and one level up. You don't want to miss a minute of this show. Its worth the money.

On trip 2, I decided to go back and see the show again. Sitting in the third row, for $25 more, was a huge difference. One word of advice: those really concerned about being in the "splash zone" should avoid the front few rows in the center. Those folks looked as though they were getting soaked. Its better to sit on the side as its splash free and you won't miss anyrhing.

There's so much going on at once onstage that its like watching 2 or 3 shows at a time. The acrobatics in this show take center stage, and for good reason. They are jaw droppingly impressive. O truly lives up to the hype.

Dress Code There did not seem to be much of one. I'd heard that you can pretty much wear anything, but I didn't see people in jeans or shorts so I'm not sure.

Cirque du Soleil: Ka- Cirque Du Soleil's newest show

The newest edition to the arcobatic amazement that is a Cirque du Soleil, Ka is described as "the epic story of a set of twins on a perilous journey to fulfill their shared destiny", according to the Cirque du Soleil website. The show is supposed to be a combination of actrobatics, pyrotechnics and martial arts.

I caught one of the preview shows and was blown away by the performance. In my opinion, its up there with O, although for different reasons. The story is a bit hard to follow, but the scenery, special effects and the acrobatics are amaziing. Ka doesn't have the acrobatic stunts seen in O that make jaws drop, but its cast is equally impressive in their movement and grace. The fire is a bit startling, even though its expected, especially if you're sitting up front.

I don't want to give too much away here, but I'll say that, if you liked O and are a Cirque fan, you'll want to take in a performance. As of late 2004, I think they are running a limited number of shows, only at 8 p.m. and only Sunday through Wednesday, or something like that. I believe the full schedule begins in 2005. But the Tuesday night showing I saw was far from sold out; there were plenty of good seats remaining empty, so getting tickets, at least at this point, is not a problem.

Dress Code By and large, the dress code at these shows appears to be anything goes. There are some basic parameters I'd assume, such as no shorts or t shirts, but the crowd ran the Vegas gamut from casino casual to dressed to the nines.

Cirque du Soleil: "O"

They say that this is Le Cirque du Soleil's most expensive show ever, which is easy to understand when you walk into O's custom designed theatre inside the Bellagio. When the curtain rises, you are greeted by a magical fantasy world complete with its own aquatic environment consisting of a stage containing a 1.5 million gallon pool. The show is performed in and out of the water seemlessly while the stage consantly transforms from solid ground into a watery playland. In fact, the name of the show, O, is derived from the French pronunciation of the word for water: L'eau.

This show really is pure magic. I recommend it highly. However, if you want to go plan well ahead of time and buy tickets well in advance of your stay. There are 2 shows a night and they sell out regularly. Guests at the Bellagio have the luxury of buying reserved tickets for better seats that are reserved just for them.

Dress Code It was mostly very dressy at the show, and yet there were people eating bags of popcorn so I think anything is ok.

Cirque du Soleil: Zumanity

Described as "the other side of Cirque du Soleil", I was unsure what to expect of this one. There is some nudity but the show is tasteful and pretty tame. Its actually pretty humorous too. The Cirque performers are great as well. I think you have to be 18 and over to get in, but they may allow people younger if accompanied by an adult.

Its worth seeing, but if you can only see one show, get tickets to "O".

Mystère by Cirque du Soleil: Totally awesome spectacle

Wow, Wow, Wow....folks, that's probably the best way to describe this show. Totally awe-inspiring and it starts off with a clown leading unknowing ticket holders around the entire facility in a fruitless search for their seats. Let's just say that there is a fair amount of audience participation. It is performance art without boundaries. Ballet without gravity. It is theatre without actors.

It is Mystère, the surrealistic celebration of music, dance, acrobatics and comedy. Mystère features specialty performances including the hilarious clown, the incredible Aerial Cube act, the awe-inspiring Hand-to-Hand act, the graceful Bungee artists who perform an aerial ballet high above the audience and a high-flying group of amazing acrobats who perform a breathtaking Aerial High Bar act.

Dress Code I guess it depends, you have informal to business casual to suits and evening gowns.

O Theater in Bellagio: Cirque du Soleil

'O' by CIRQUE DU SOLEIL - Live entertainment at its very best. 'O' is French word for water (spelled 'Eau'). Directed by Franco Dragone, who has directed 6 other Cirque du Soleil's productions, 'O' uses water - lots of it - as much as 1.5 million gallons - as its stage. Featuring 74 excellent acrobats from around the world the show is incredible!

Watch out for the high-tech stage which can drain the reservoir of water from the stage in less than 7 minutes! Great backdrops and stage designs. I wonder how much it costs?

An elegant world-class production. Love the songs (performed live) from this show.

IMHO, this is the best of all Cirque du Soleil's performances. I've watched 'Mystere', 'Saltimbanco', 'Alegria' & 'Dralion'. 'O' is the most unique (in terms of stage-setting, music & costumes) & expensive of them all.

Dress Code Formal.

We had reports that most of the shows were well worth seeing. But they are not cheap. The more popular the show, the higher the price. Most people agreed that the Cirque du Soleil was the best show but you pays your money and you takes the chance.
Very colourful noisy 'in your face' shows

Dress Code you can dress up if you wish but it is not necessary. You certainly get better service if you are reasonably smart.
