Cirque du Soleil's Original One-Night-Only Performance to Support Water-Related Issues Through 3/31

More than 230 Cirque du Soleil artists and guest performers combined their extraordinary talents to create a "one-night-only" original, full-scale performance on March 22 in Las Vegas. One Night for ONE DROP was presented as a global philanthropy event on World Water Day to benefit ONE DROP, the non-profit organization established by Cirque du Soleil Founder Guy Laliberté, which strives to ensure that water is accessible to all, today and forever. One Night for ONE DROP was sponsored by Lamborghini and MGM Resorts International.

The full performance, filmed with 12 cameras at the "O" Theatre at Bellagio, is now available for exclusive online viewing at ONEDROP.org through March 31 only, with a donation of $5 or more to ONE DROP.

Special guest performers included "America's Got Talent" stars, singer Jackie Evancho and performance painter David Garibaldi, who created a painting live on stage; Victoria's Secret model Oluchi Orlandi's unveiled a specially-designed Roberto Cavalli gown; Sonya Tayeh from "So You Think You Can Dance" choreographed a powerful dance piece and award-winning composer Danny Elfman created an original composition.

Guy Laliberté, Founder of Cirque du Soleil and Chair of ONE DROP, said, "I was deeply touched by the performance. I know the amount of work and dedication all the performers and employees put in to touch our hearts and they accomplished this in a phenomenal manner. I truly wish to thank them for volunteering their time and talent for ONE DROP and creating the most unbelievable ripple effect."

Through April 4, there is an online auction offering once-in-a-lifetime experiences, art, memorabilia, VIP event packages and more. Auction items include a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster, a watch from the private collection of Prince Albert II of Monaco, jet-setting trips around the world, original sculptures by Richard MacDonald and Rabarama and the couture gown designed by Roberto Cavalli and worn by Oluchi Orlandi. To view and bid, go to charitybuzz.com/ONEDROP.

Access to the broadcast is provided by Cleeng, the worldwide leader in online pay-per-view.
