As all prior Cirque de Soleil productions Ovo was a very creative show. I especially enjoyed the grasshoppers and their realistic costumes. However, I found it a little disconcerting that the one and only black performer amongst all those...continued

Great show. Some outstanding performances, great costumes and music. Very charming and upbeat production. Not as awesome as Iris which is playing at the Kodak in Hollywood, but still a lot of fun.

Description

 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.
