Get ready to party like it's 1929 as you join fellow WGBH supporters for an evening of swing dancing to live tunes performed by Brooklyn's own Baby Soda Jazz Band. You can get into the swing of things with an optional one-hour beginners' lesson from Boston Swing Central. Then, it's time to dance the night away, but don't worry -- no experience or partner is required. You'll have a blast while learning about the history and culture of swing dancing from experts who'll demonstrate how the style has evolved. Seasoned dancers can even take part in a Charleston contest. Learn More

Freakin' amazing. The show was great. They venue was nice, but not accommodating to all seats. The seats off to the left and right of the stage (I had seats P 17 & 18) missed a lot of the high-intensity rock wall performance due to the staging. That's my only negative comment. I even loved that the port-a-potties had an outside sink so you can watch all the nasty people who come out of the bathroom and didn't wash their hands! LOL.

Unbelievable production. Amazing artistic vision and jaw-dropping individual performances. One of the best performances I have seen in the past year. There is nothing else like Cirque du Soleil. They continue to hit it out of the park.
Quotes & Highlights
OVO is a headlong rush into a colourful 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. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.
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’s 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.
OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.
