The Millennium Dome Show was a multimedia, Cirque du Soleil-esque show created specifically for the year 2000 in the Millennium Dome. The show was directed by Mark Fisher and Peter Gabriel. Mark Fisher designed the show and Peter Gabriel wrote the music, available in the album OVO.
The show detailed the story of a fictional set of beings, that transition from agriculture to industry, while segregating different races. Ovo is the offspring of both races, and is set to sail the sky after a catastrophe occurs.
The show opened on 1 January 2000 and was performed 999 times before closing on 31 December of that year.
