Cirque du Soleil – OVO
The circus is in town with the big top tents up in full effect at the Santa Monica Pier. And when that circus is a presentation of Cirque du Soleil, you know it’s gonna be a great show.
Their latest traveling show to visit the area is OVO. The theme involves insects and the madcap adventures of an enormous egg and the insects attempting to protect and steal it. Sounds odd? Indeed. But so captivating and engrossing you can’t help but fall deeper and deeper into the story and performances.
What I like best about the traveling Cirque shows is that they are smaller, intimate shows under the big top tents. There really isn’t a bad seat under the tent. So you get to see the action up close and personal. And OVO didn’t disappoint at all. It was full of fun characters, lively performers doing stunts that only the wildest imagine could dream up, and great music.
All around good stuff!
