"WOW - WORLD OF WONDER," the internationally-acclaimed production, made a splash and transported audiences into a world of water, wonder and fantasy during its Las Vegas debut at the Rio Showroom at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 7, 2017. BroadwayWorld has photos from the opening festivities below!

In addition to the "WOW" cast, the opening night red carpet sparkled with appearances by Olympic Gold Medalist and Empress of Ice Oksana Baiul and husband, entertainment producer Carlo J. Farina, Venetian headliners Human Nature, the Chippendales, Melody Sweets, The Tenors of Rock, Anthony Cools, Jennifer Romas and cast members from SEXXY, Ricardo Laguna, and Miss Behave.

"WOW" is an entertainment spectacular that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. The cast of more than 30 international performing artists, acrobats and dancers fly, flip, fold, dance and defy the imagination in a 180 degree theatrical setting that engages the audience from beginning to end with 3D multi-media projections, water walls, and holograms. Add breathtaking acrobatics, dazzling choreography, thrilling theatrical lighting, magnificent music and even finalists from America's Got Talent, and you are sure to be wowed!

Created and directed by famed director Hanoch Rosènn, "WOW," the long-running circus-style show features delights, dangers and water. Rosènn is known worldwide for his extravagant and large-scale productions - including "Festigal" where he directed Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot in her stage-acting debut in 2008. Rosènn created "WOW" as a fast-paced, stunning spectacular which, to date, has been seen by more than 2.5 million people.

For the show's North American premiere, the Rio Showroom at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino has been transformed into a world of water including a custom-built stage and pool that promises an up-close and interactive audience experience. Though grand in scale, design and production, the family-friendly show will provide Las Vegas audiences with an intimate theatrical water show adventure unlike any other.

Among the many dynamic performers during the 90-minute show include include America's Got Talent semi-finalist, Silvia Silvia - whose jaw-dropping archery act of shooting an apple off of her own head left judges and audiences spellbound. In addition the international cast features some of the greatest acrobats and specialty acts from the USA, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Ukraine, France, the UK and more.

The water spectacular "WOW" performs at the Rio Showroom at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Tuesday through Sunday at 7:00 p.m with additional shows at 9:00 pm Friday through Sunday. Tickets are on sale now and range from $49 - $169 + taxes and fees and can be purchased at the Rio Box Office, Ticketmaster, RioLasVegas.com or by calling 702-777-7776.
