O by Cirque du Soleil is one of the best Cirque shows in Vegas. The performers’ transition between the water and floor acts seamlessly. You will leave in awe of the heights, the difficulty of the acts, and the fluidity of the performance in and out of the water. It’s a must-see!
O Theater & Seating
The O Theater entrance has beautiful sculptures and artwork throughout. You feel as though you are passing through a museum before taking your seat.
Once inside, you can’t help but be in awe of the majestic blue glass ceiling, the height of the impressive red curtains, and the stadium seating. You feel as though you’ve been transported to an old-world European opera house.
The O seating map below shows the different sections and price levels. There are a few items worth noting.
Close, But Not Too Close
We sat in the lower orchestra, section 102 (just right of center), in row J (9 rows back), in seats 20 and 21, which are two seats in from the center aisle.
And, they were perfect! Here’s why…
The absolute best seats in the house are in that yellow section above called “The Golden Circle”, but these seats start at $210 each and go up to $250. Sometimes they are called “Producer Seats”.
If you are like my husband, and prefer an aisle seat for more leg room, you’ll pay extra at the O Theatre. So we compromised and went two seats in from the center aisle, so we still felt like we were in the middle of the action, without paying the Golden Circle/Producer or Aisle prices.
Seat numbers start at the right of each section (in the seating chart above) at number one and increase into the 20s as you move left in the row.
There is such a thing as being TOO close. If you’ve ever sat in the first row of the movie theater, you know the neck-craning needed to see a show like this. Not to mention that the first three rows are considered the WET Zone
The performers are very high in several acts, and you may want a little distance to be able to see the whole show. It’s a lot to take in, so having some perspective makes the show more enjoyable.

- Exclusive performer meet and greet
- VIP Suite seating complete with champagne and commemorative gifts
Ticket prices for La Grande Experience are around $450 each.
Wet Seats at “O”
Since O is a water show, there are “wet seats”. This is not like Sea World, though. You aren’t going to walk out of the theater completely soaked, but you could get splashed. The wet seats are the first three rows of all 5 lower orchestra sections – 101, 102, 103, 104, and 105.
Limited View Seats
The “Limited View” seats are the lowest priced ticket in the theater, and rightfully so. There are some restrictions to your view because of safety railings or the sharp angle of the view. These seats are found in rows A-E in sections 101 and 105, on the far right and left sections of the theater.
