Cirque du Soleil has brought one of my favorite shows back to town! Cirque du Soleil’s OVO is only in town through the weekend and I simply cannot say it enough – you should see this masterpiece! We caught the show tonight, and I can tell you it is phenomenal. You will be entertained from start to finish by the magical acrobatics, fantastic music and silly antics of the bugs.
We took all four kids and my mom, as a Mother’s Day outing and everyone was entranced. And it was not just us, everyone in the arena seemed to be enjoying OVO. I do not know of a show I have been to where I have heard the audience oooh and aaah and gasp in delight so many times. OVO is perfect for all ages, both young and old (young at heart). Read all about the show and see a few of my pictures below (not great quality but they will give you an idea of the body bending acrobatics that were happening).

About the show
OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement.
When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It is love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.
The cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 12 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning Flying Act in which a group of scarabs soar high above the stage, from both edges to the middle landing on a platform.
Tickets starting at $39 for adults (subject to change) and $25 for children. Senior, military, student discounts and family 4-packs available. www.cirquedusoleil.com/ovo
