With an international cast of artists, Cirque du Soleil’s timeless production “O” tells the tale of theater through the eyes of a young Sicilian boy on a quest for adventure. Inspired by the concept of infinity, “O” is—phonetically speaking—the French word for water (spelled “eau”). World-class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers, and characters perform in, on, and above water to create a breathtaking experience in a magnificent theater reminiscent of a European opera house. The 1.5-million-gallon pool is an amazing feat of imagination and engineering. You won’t want to miss this fabulous production.
