OVO~Cirque Du Soleil Review

Alittle Bit About OVO-Cirque Du Soleil
(Credit Cirque Du Soleil:Following Show Overview)
   "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."

Our Experience
We had the privilege to attend OVO by Cirque Du Soleil in Manhattan on Tuesday. The Cirque Du Soleil experience is certainly like no other! The show was presented Under their signature "Big Top".
(pictured below).
The lights dimmed....and the show began! The night was filled with awe inspiring (at times jaw dropping) acrobatics, set to beautiful music that was delivered via live orchestra. OVO is a bustling demonstration of the Eco system; the amazing world that exists beneath our feet, and all around us!
 What we witnessed was beyond what your imagination could conjure! A man (bug) balanced on a curved pole(for an extended period of time), in a one hand, hand stand! Wait, theres MORE.... he then began to rotate (complete 360) on the pole (yes, still balanced on one hand)! OVO was the perfect blend of comedy, acrobatics, great music, and the costumes are absolutely gorgeous! We will difinitely look at the insect life around us a little differently now! What a great way to start the summer season off! Cirque Du Soleil has gone all out with this show! Family entertainment at it's FINEST!

OVO will be playing through June 6, 2010 at Randall's Island in NYC.
The Tour Will Continue! For Tickets & Information / Dates when OVO will be in a city near you go to
