“O” (Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio) – 7/2/08
Having been wowed by "Mystere", nothing could have prepared me for the dark magic and poetic spectacle of "O" (7/2/08) at the Bellagio (where I stayed), another Cirque du Soleil production. Although less playful than "Mystere", "O" featured the same trademark seamlessness of the previous show. What this show had though was a world totally and meticulously realized, complete with magnetic and memorable cast of renegades ... and a 1.5 million gallon pool as a stage / playground!
