For the first time on television, viewers can see One Night For One Drop: Imagined By Cirque Du Soleil —a one-night-only event that wows crowds and raises money for One Drop, a world-renowned non-profit dedicated to providing access to safe water around the globe—for themselves on Saturday, March 16 at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access.

In fact, for the past seven years, only those lucky enough to be in the crowd at the Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas have been able to enjoy the entertainment provided by legendary Cirque du Soleil—until now!

The event will be hosted by Kevin Frazier and Tara Lipinski. Frazier is co-host of the four-time Emmy Award-winning Entertainment Tonight and Lipinski is the internationally acclaimed figure skater who became the youngest individual Gold Medalist in Winter Olympics history.

One Drop was created by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté with the mission to ensure sustainable access to safe water and sanitation to the most vulnerable communities through innovative partnerships, creativity, and the power of art. For over 10 years, the organization has put together projects to help transform the lives of over 1.4 million beneficiaries around the world.

The philanthropic event, imagined by Cirque du Soleil, will feature an exclusive performance that takes the audience on an empathetic adventure, drawing inspiration from human connection, friendship, beauty, nature, love, and loss.

This year's storyline follows the main character, "Everyman," through a journey of enlightenment, illustrating the evolution of man and encouraging change and hope for humanity. Portraying pivotal moments and tumultuous times, his counterpart, "Drop," personifies her magical perspective that necessary change begins with one.

André Kasten and Leah Moyer are this year's writer/director team. Their imaginative choreography can be seen in shows worldwide including Mystère and The Beatles™ LOVE™ by Cirque du Soleil.

The exclusive performance will also include pieces by Hans Zimmer; The Academy-Award-winning film score composer will present three brilliant compositions, including a modified piece from the blockbuster film Interstellar, specially adapted for the one-night-only event.

Additionally, One Night For One Drop: Imagined By Cirque Du Soleil will welcome celebrated Las Vegas headliner Blue Man Group, in addition to internationally recognized choreographers and dance industry leaders like Andrew Winghart, Alexander Ekman, and Keone and Mari Madrid, who orchestrated breathtaking pieces to artistically echo this year's inspirational theme of man and nature.

The limited commercial experience is made possible by the sponsor Colgate, which is committed to raising awareness of the global water crisis and making #everydropcount through its Save Water campaign.
