A Warner Bros. representative verified Jenkins’ return on Monday after Variety initially reported the news.

Taking in the unrivaled thrills and wonder of Cirque du Soleil’s ‘O’.


Thomasz Rossa The finale of”O” will just leave you wanting more.

Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017|2 a.m.

I have actually invested much of the last 16 years attempting to explain Las Vegas with words, explaining and detailing its huge experiences, moods and minutes. On the Strip and off, I’ve taken in flavors and sounds, performances and discussions, conversations and analyses. Some have been so incredible and unusual, they’ve been tough to record with mere reporting– difficult, however not impossible.

Previously. “O” is impossible. After practically 19 years’ worth of efficiencies at a singularly remarkable theater at Bellagio, Cirque du Soleil’s aquatic phenomenon finally included me to its collection of more than 15 million wide-eyed and astonished viewers. I didn’t remember on my phone as I do at other Vegas shows. I could not look away. I didn’t develop the method I wanted to write about “O” as the curious character Philemon (played by Jorge Castano), who functions as the audience’s guide on this surreal adventure, was tossed back into the calm waters of the 1.5-million gallon stage-lake by 2 red-coated noblemen as they closed the drape and the show. I couldn’t think of the words. Rather, I was dreaming of the lots of more times I need to see it.

I’ve experienced all however two of Cirque’s resident Vegas shows–“Zumanity” and “Criss Angel: Mindfreak Live” are still on the list, though I’ve also seen the two defunct programs “Viva Elvis” and “Zarkana”– and come away impressed with something every time. However you cannot single out unforgettable highlights or applause-inducing moments within “O,” since that would be every act. The beautiful, enthusiastic performance of Le Travesti (Robert Knowles) is just as striking as the cadre of “zebras” dangling and crashing from a swaying jungle gym-like suspension. The can-you-believe-that-just-happened aspect is simply as strong with Ray Wold’s L’Allume (the “guy on fire”) as it is with the heart-stopping Bateau, a steel-framed airship in constant motion decorated with 11 acrobats flying all around it.

Other Cirque productions are known for their dramatic visual storytelling (“KÀ” at MGM Grand) or psychological connection (“The Beatles LOVE” at Mirage). But absolutely nothing I’ve seen balances a truly inspiring spectacle with Cirque’s signature sense of whimsy the method “O” does. It’s the most cinematic program on the Strip, extremely rapidly pulling you into its own great world where things can be astonishing, silly, attractive and creepy at the exact same time. And it’s all awash in flexibility, thanks to the one-of-a-kind phase that permits its entertainers to do the impossible whether they’re moving through water or air, unrestricted and unrestricted.

“O” carries out at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday at Bellagio and tickets vary from $98.50 to $228; a VIP experience is likewise available in opera house-style suites. For information, call 702-796-9999 or go to cirquedusoleil.com.
