Ovo means egg and it is the story of a hidden, secret insect world. Watch as the insects work, eat, play and flutter in a non-stop whirl of colour, noise and movement. Take a sneak-peek into the lives of insects. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are curious about the object. Then a quirky insect arrives in the bustling community and catches the eye of the ladybug and it's love at first sight.
The Cirque Du Soleil – Ovo show has already received rave reviews from previous tours. This is an amazing show and one not to be missed.
Tickets are available through the official Cirque Du Soleil website.

Tip-if bringing young children who are afraid of the dark & loud noises, the stage darkens suddenly at the beginning with loud scary sounds. Quite a few kids started crying when I attended. But they will be so xcited by the finale. Mine was.
