Performers from “O” are getting ready to return to hit the pool again this July.

On July 1, “O” by Cirque du Soleil will return to their stage on the Las Vegas Strip in grand fashion with a visually spectacular processional throughout the Bellagio. Led by a carousel horse, the cast and crew will parade and perform through the resort fully outfitted in the show’s surreal costumes as they ready themselves to make their first appearance back in the aquatic theater. Bellagio employees and Cirque du Soleil fans will line the parade route to officially welcome “O” back to the resort.

Following the processional, the cast and crew will be met in the theater by the CEOs of Cirque du Soleil and MGM Resorts International who will deliver remarks on the significance of the flagship show’s return to the stage, having performed more than 10,000 shows in front of more than 17 million guests.

The “O,” is best known for its aquatic acrobatics inside a 1.5-million-gallon pool. The show has been a continuous presence on the Strip following its 1998 debut but was forced to cancel its shows along with other prominent shows on the Strip due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nightly performances will resume Wednesday through Sunday, 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m,but show schedules are subject to change.
