O Theater News - 2013 O Cirque du Soleil Updates
Pronounced “eau,” as in the French word for “water,” this Cirque du Soleil performance involves acrobatics and aerial dancing in, around, and above a 1.5 million-gallon pool. Basically, it involves Cirque fans’ favorite acts, including trapeze and contortion, only with a giant tub of water as part of the set. The show has been in permanent residence at the Bellagio
in Las Vegas since 1998. You haven’t seen it yet? Here’s your chance! Razorgator has “O” tickets
for all shows running through the end of the year.
There are two performances per night, one at 7:30 p.m. and one at 10:00 p.m.. Pricing for both times is generally the same, so it just depends on how late you want to stay up. All shows for September start at $152 for balcony seating. Average starting pricing for October performances is only slightly cheaper: $147. Orchestra seating is more costly, as it is closest to the stage, capping at around $300, still quite reasonable for a Vegas show. This pricing trend follows through most of November, jumping back up to $152 toward the last days of the month. There is a short break in December; there are no shows from the 2nd to the 17th. When they resume on the 18th, starting pricing is $147.
Like all the other dates, there are two shows each on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Balcony seating starts at $161 for all four shows. Pricing remains in the same range for the five ensuing dates, the last of the year. “O” is the second most popular Cirque du Soleil show based on price, averaging $226.
