It’s been called the greatest show on earth and Cirque du Soleil’s latest spectacular tour, OVO, is coming to the UK this summer.
This includes a week of shows at FlyDSA Arena, Sheffield and we have a pair of tickets for the show on 24 August (starts 8pm) to offer as a prize.
There will be seven Sheffield performances in total between August 22 and 26 and the cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 17 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. This includes Alanna Baker from the UK who plays the role of the Black Spider in the show. She was crowned European gymnastics champion in 2011 and won bronze in the World Championships in 2012. Alanna, who has been training since she was five years old, has travelled around the world with OVO to countries as far reaching as Japan and Australia.
Having thrilled more than five million people worldwide since the show premiered in Montreal in 2009 as a Big Top show, OVO offers the same captivating production but on a larger scale now.
OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, 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. 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.
