The critically-acclaimed production will make a splash during its North American debut at the Rio on September 26.
“WOW” is a water entertainment spectacular with a cast of more than 30 international performing artists, acrobats and dancers who fly, flip, dance and more in a 180-degree setting. 3D multi-media projections, water walls, and holograms keep audiences entertained as the performers, some of which are finalists from “America’s Got Talent” dazzle all around them.
The “WOW” long-running circus -styled show on water was created and directed by Hanoch Rosenn, who is known world-wide for his extravagant and large-scale productions, including “Festigal” where he directed “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot in her stage-acting debut in 2008. His stunning “WOW” has been seen in Israel by more than 2.5 million people.
“As the newest addition of world-class talent at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, ‘WOW’ will be unlike any production Las Vegas has experienced before,” said Damian Costa, Caesars Entertainment vice president of Las Vegas entertainment operations in a statement. “Audiences will be captivated by the splendor of stand-out visual elements, water effects and a breathtaking cast of performers.”
In preparation for its debut this fall, the Rio Showroom has been transformed into a world of water with a custom-built stage and pool that promises an up-close and interactive experience. Despite the grand designs and production, the family-friendly show will offer an intimate water show experience.
“For more than 15 years we have been presenting “WOW” with a new incarnation of the show every year,” said Hanoch in a statement. “I have always felt the show was perfect for Las Vegas so I am thrilled to bring “Wow” to North American audiences with the premiere at Rio.”
“WOW” will play at the Rio Showroom Tuesday through Saturday at 7 p.m. with additional shows at 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
