"O" - by Cirque du Soleil

O is a water-themed stage production by Cirque du Soleil, a Canadian circus and entertainment company. The show has been in permanent residence at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, since October 1998. O, whose name is pronounced the same way as eau, the French word for "water", takes place in, around and above a 1.5-million-US-gallon (5,700 m3) pool of water, featuring water acts such as synchronized swimming as well as aerial and ground acts. The O theatre, is designed to look similar to a 14th century European opera house.

I have to tell you this is one of the best shows I've seen in a long time! I was spell bound from start to finish.  The artistry, music, costumes....simply everything, lit up every sense in my body.  It was amazing.
