The Fanlistings.org defines it as "A fanlisting is a web clique that lists fans of a particular subject. Unlike most web cliques, a person does not need a web site in order to join. Fans from around the world submit their information to their approved fanlisting and they are then listed to show their love for the subject."
Inspired by the concept of infinity and by the pure form of the letter "O", the title of this production is also a phonetic representation of the French word for water, the element embodied by this show. With an international cast performing in, on and above water, Cirque du Soleil's "O" tells the tale of theatre through the ages and frees us to lose ourselves in a world without limits.
"O" pays tribute to the magic of the theatre-from the simplest street performance to the most lavish of operas—where anything is possible and where the drama of life plays itself out before our very eyes. (credit)
On October 19, 1998, Cirque du Soleil beat the odds and introduced an exciting new production to the world -- «O». At first glance, "O" is nothing more than another Cirque du Soleil production inside a fancy theater built to specifications for a hotel project on the Las Vegas strip. When you take a second glance, "O" becomes much, much more. Every aspect surrounding it is finely tuned; detailed to exactness. It seems inconceivable that within a $1.6 billion dollar hotel resides a production never before attempted. Never before imagined even; until now.
"O" is the brainchild of Franco Dragone and Gilles Ste-Croix, and the title itself, "O" is a phonetic play on "eau" - the French world for water. And the show, like the host resort, drips with it! Set to water in a $70 Million dollar theater, "O" pays tribute to the magic of the theater - from the simplest street performance to the most lavish of operas. Anything is possible. The drama of life plays itself out before your very eyes within a $20 Million dollar production. (credit)
"For me, "O" represents life and all the mysteries of the universe. But it also represents the theatre, which is a marvellous machine mankind has created to understand himself and his universe. Theatre allows us to explore the mystery, and "O" is our attempt both to praise theatre and to push it beyond its limits." says the director, Franco Dragone. (credit)
