OVO CIRQUE DU SOLEIL SALT LAKE CITY REVIEW

I was able to attend opening night of OVO at the Maverick Center and it was amazing! I have never been to a Cirque Du Soleil show before so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I loved the costumes, music and most importantly the awesome performances.  I opted not to bring my little ones, and I’m glad because I don’t think they would have been as entertained as we were because they don’t understand all the talent and skill the performances require. I thought the whole show was very engaging. My husband and I agreed that we loved everything, except for the bugs who acted as clowns to give the other performers time to set up. Sometimes they were funny, but other times you just really wanted the next act to begin.

Here are some of my favorite acts:

OVO CIRQUE DU SOLEIL COMING TO SALT LAKE CITY

I am so excited that Cirque Du Soleil’s OVO Show is coming to the Maverick Center this month! I was able to attend a blogger event where we learned more about the show and we even got to hold different bugs!  Kim’s Cold Blooded Creatures taught us so much about all of her different bugs. We started off by making these colorful bug masks. My kids loved all the fun glitter and jewels and feathers. Then Kim had some time to teach us about each of the bugs she brought. I was surprised when my son wasn’t scared to hold all of them. I also decided to hold the tarantula, even though I am scared of spiders!

OVO is an “immersive touring show, teeming with life. Insects work, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy in motion. Their home is filled with biodiversity, beauty, action and moments of quiet emotion. The awestruck insects are intensely curious when a mysterious egg appears, representing the enigma and cycles of their lives.” (Excerpt from the Cirque Du Soleil website.)
