BWW Feature: ONE NIGHT FOR ONE DROP, IMAGINED BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL at O Theater At Bellagio Resort & Casino
"One Night For One Drop, Imagined By Cirque du Soleil," the one-night-only soirée to benefit One Drop, features once-in-a-lifetime performances. This year, audiences around the globe can experience this exclusive event when CBS will premiere "One Night For One Drop, Imagined By Cirque du Soleil, brought to you by Colgate" on the CBS Television Network on March 16.
The seventh annual "One Night for One Drop" will dazzle audiences at Bellagio Resort & Casino on March 8 and the performance will be taped that evening for the March 16 broadcast.
The audience engages on an empathetic journey with the main character of "Everyman." The passage begins with choices opening one door in a room filled with many closed doors. He is joined with his counterpart, "Drop," personifying her magical perspective that necessary change begins with one, whether a step, touch, look, or the healing power of water with one drop.
Through dance, music, imagery, light, and sound, the journey of each person is explored. There is the power of fire, the darkness of temptation, the joy of connection, the wonder of nature, and the beauty of friendship. It is a tale of love and loss, which is unique yet the common denominator of all people. This year's performance features a unique aquatic theme that incorporates water in ways audience members have never seen before.
André Kasten and Leah Moyer are the guest writer/director team. Their choreography can be experienced in "The Beatles LOVE" and "Mystère" by Cirque du Soleil. Hans Zimmer, the Academy-Award-winning film score composer, will play three compositions, including a specially adapted piece for the one-night-only performance from the blockbuster hit "Interstellar." Zimmer has composed music for over 150 films including "The Pirates of the Caribbean" series, "Interstellar," "Inception," "The Dark Knight Trilogy," and "The Lion King," for which he won an Academy Award for Best Original Score.
Celebrated Las Vegas headliner Blue Man Group returns this year as they personify the humor in life. Renowned choreographers and dance industry leaders Andrew Winghart, Alexander Ekman and Keone and Mari Madrid orchestrated pieces to showcase this year's inspirational theme of man and nature.
The one-night-only soirée will benefit One Drop, a global nonprofit organization dedicated to providing access to safe water around the world. Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté as part of his vision to contribute to building a better world created the foundation.
