Latest posts by FIERTH (see all)
Cirque Du Soleil returned to Randall’s Island with it’s new show OVO for the spring season and it will blow you away. OVO is a peak into the micro-cosmos of insects and their colorfully bright, extremely flexible, and acrobatic world. The cast of characters including Preying Mantis, Grasshoppers, Ladybugs and Spiders who trap your attention and do not let it go over the course of the two and a half hour show.
It’s 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. We too fell in love with OVO.
The Abstract circus tent that houses Cirque ensures intimacy with the characters as well as providing the luxury of there not being a bad seat in the house. While the entire show is thrilling nothing compares to the closing scene when the stage again bursts into dramatic action and the chaos of insects flying all around you and onto the walls floors and ceiling will make you believe that the locusts have again taken over. We left the tent after seeing the show with a sense of amazement and child like excitement that is rarely found in many of todays productions. The costumes deserved special mention as well, not only were they masterfully designed but some left us questioning the impossibility before our eyes.
Cirque du Soleils OVO is a limited time only engagement , this is a not to miss show.
