Entertainment company, Cirque du Soleil has produced its very own virtual reality (VR) experience to highlight its aquatic show, O.

The firm, Canadian Entertainment and VR production studio Felix & Paul Studios have teamed up to create the new content.  

Dreams of O will give fans a new experience of the Cirque du Soleil show, boasting a 12-minute, 360-degree 3D experience that will include fire, acrobatics and pyrotechnics.

"VR is a format to enhance the audience experience – whether they’ve seen the show or not,” said Sébastien Ouimet, senior manager content, partnerships and distribution for Cirque du Soleil, reports Real Screen.

“It presents the shows in a whole new light and gives our fans, as well as new audiences, access to unique views of the acts that the live show experiences feature.”
