    Does anyone have any opinions on which of these would be better?
    Thanks in advance.

    Go 'O' Zarkana is more of a micro-circus while 'O' is "aqua-batics."

    O is just awesome. Haven't heard much about Zarkana that compares in a good way to O. You won't be disappointed if you go to O. Sit back a bit though as the overall surreal experience is just amazing. Balcony is best at the front.

    Of the two, I'd choose "O" just for the spectacle. But if you aren't limiting yourself between those two choices, I'd go with LE REVE. It's much more hip and contemporary than "O", still has the fantastic water element, but without the creepy costumes and boring clowns. The cast is super-sexy (male and female both), the songs have English-language lyrics, and the theater is just gorgeous. It's in the round, the cast is extremely close to the audience, the sound system is wonderful, seats are very very comfortable, and it's much less expensive than "O". I've seen Zarkana, and it's not much better than their traveling shows. Not at all worthy of a permanent residency alongside what's already there.

    I agree with Sammasseur. Le Reve is a fantastic show, I think much better than O. Will be seeing it again in a couple of weeks. I have not seen Zarkana.

    I vote O hands down. I saw Zarkana at the end of November. It was good, but it isn't the spectacle like O. Zarkana is very much a "classic circus show".

    Thanks to the other replies touting Le Reve... I'm going to put that on my list now!

    Yeah I bet you're going to get a unanimous opinion on this one. O is far superior. I saw Zarkana here in NYC so not sure if Vegas production is any better but it was by far the dullest Cirque show I've seen.

    Haven't they been practically giving away Zarkana tix for free as part of various hotel/promo deals?
