About the show
Since its world-premiere in Montreal in April 2009, already 1.5 million spectators have been charmed by OVO.


Directed by Deborah Colker, the first female director at Cirque du Soleil, 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 54 performing artists from 16 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning flying trapeze act, in which six flyers soar 40 feet in the air, making this the biggest act of its kind to ever be presented under a big top by Cirque du Soleil. It combines many circus disciplines, including banquine, Russian swing and swinging chair.
 
The finale features 20 artists running, jumping and leaping up a 24-foot vertical wall.
Tickets will be available for the general public on Sunday, April 3 at 10 a.m. online at cirquedusoleil.com/ovo or by phone at 1 800 450-1480.
