Reflections in Blue
in Blue in words and images! (Cirque Club exclusive)
Reflections in Blue is a unique and magical 90-minute water show that will be presented in Montreal for one night only. Developed exclusively for the opening ceremonies of the MONTREAL 2005 - XI FINA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, this event will be a celebration of water as a source of life and a way of life, showcasing incredible athletic and artistic expression.
On this very special evening the swimming pool will be transformed into a fantastic aquatic universe. You will be taken to a place where reality meets fantasy as the rites, myths and richness of the sea are interpreted in our own special way. But alas, as the opening ceremonies come to an end, so does Reflections in Blue… never to be seen again.
Please note! Reflections in Blue is not based on our aquatic show "O" currently showing at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. This is a completely new and original concept developed exclusively for the opening ceremonies and will not be presented again.
The XI FINA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
For 16 days MONTREAL 2005 will be hosting the XI FINA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. This event is the largest gathering of young athletes in the city since the 1976 Olympic Games.

The championships will be a demonstration of the incredible mobilizing energy of sport and an eloquent display of pure waterpower.
