Underwater Magic: Hidden Tech Behind Cirque Du Soleil`s `O`
id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> Now playing: Watch this: Staging Cirque du Soleil: The technology behind `O` 2:12 There`s something eerie about seeing 1.5 million gallons of water up close.
I`m standing in the dark -- 17 feet underground -- pressed up against a massive tank while swimmers and divers glide in and out of view.
Down here, I feel a long way from the noisy Las Vegas strip.
This tank is arguably one of the most famous attractions in Vegas. Ten times a week for the last 18 years, swimmers, acrobats, high divers and contortionists have been diving into this water and skating across its surface as part of Cirque du Soleil`s water-themed show, "O."
As a mad theatre nerd, this show is my Xanadu (the place, not the theatrical production). But going behind the scenes I could see just how much work and technological wizardry goes into putting this show on every night. From the hydraulic stage that drops away to reveal a 17-foot deep pool to the countless set pieces that move around high above stage, all automated to within a fraction of a second, "O" is a technical marvel.
Disappearing act
Before "O" opened to the public in October 1998, Cirque du Soleil was already well known for http://phasionistasa.co.za/mediawiki/index.php/Incredibly_Awesome_Gifts_For_18_Year_Old_Boys its epic productions and unique staging. But the construction of the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas in the late `90s presented a new opportunity: a custom-built theatre and a blank slate.
So what do you do when you build in Vegas? You start with a pool, of course. And if you`re going to do a water show, why not do it with a 1.5 million gallon tank?
