Good news for Cirque du Soleil fans, O one of the best-selling theatrical performances of all time, will extend their performance scheduled to every night of the week at Bellagio Resort & Casino. The production will add performances on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning January 2020.
“We are grateful that the demand for O has never been stronger and to be in the position where we can offer guests more opportunities to see the show,” said Matt Nickel, General Manager, Cirque du Soleil Resident Shows Division in a statement. “This production has been an essential part of the Las Vegas experience from the day it opened.”
O debuted in Las Vegas in 1998 and since then has been viewed by more than 17 million guests and continues to be one of the most popular shows on the Strip. It’s no surprise why either. O features an incredible cast of acrobats and synchronized swimmers including nine Olympians, performing 60-foot high dives in a 1.5-million-gallon pool. And yes, that pool itself is worth seeing.
“O has proven to be one of the most powerful entertainment brands Las Vegas has ever seen. Its appeal to visitors from around the world has grown with each year, a true testament to the creative genius of our partners at Cirque du Soleil,” said George Kliavkoff, MGM Resorts’ President of Entertainment & Sports in a statement. “The expansion of the show’s schedule enables even more guests to make O part of their travel itinerary, something we are incredibly pleased to offer.”
To accommodate the new schedule, O has hired 85 additional cast and crew.
