Cirque du Soleil: O 1 1
Cirque du Soleil - "O" Having been to multiple Cirque du Soleil shows, "O" is my favorite by far. I was truly mystified by the performers abilities but more so with the construction of the stage. While water is a large portion and centerpiece of the show, the way that the stage moved and worked was breathtaking. In the same location, high divers could leap into the water while others appeared to be walking on the surface of the water. This show truly shows the talent and abilities that make Cirque du Soleil what it is. May 3, 2011
