At the Bellagio Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, Cirque created its tenth production and second resident show. Once again working with hotel entrepreneur Steve Wynn, Cirque du Soleil and Wynn financed a 70 million dollar theater within the hotel. As the company was getting more comfortable with theater productions, they wanted to create a show performed in the water, a concept not tried in a theater before. "O", whose name comes from the phonetic spelling of the French word for water, took more than 400,000 man-hours of production and pre-production work to assemble.

Many past practices were unable to be used in the production of "O". The costumes used by the performers were nearly 10,000 dollars each and needed to be made of material to resist the effects of the chlorine and bromide in the water. The makeup that had been used in past shows was also unsuitable for the performers being submerged in the tanks, a new waterproof formulation needed to be made before the show could be started.
