Everybody knows what fantastic, mind-boggling, death-defying productions Cirque Du Soleil are capable of. We have had numerous tours of various shows and yet still, every time I see them, I am amazed and enthralled by what is possible. ‘Ovo’ is no different.
Based around an insect theme, the show marries together elements of circus, dance, physical theatre, comedy as act after act bedazzle and bemuse the audience. On arrival, there were bug catchers and insects wandering between aisles, peering into popcorn cups and gently poking onlookers. Then the curtain rose and the magic began. The costumes were breathtaking, the acts were supremely talented and the comic relief between the main acts was amusing. It is quite unbelievable what the human body is capable of and Cirque Du Soleil have scoured the globe for the best and bendiest. A fabulous night out for young and old, just protect your popcorn.
