Cirque du Soleil’s newest show Ovo will be coming to San Jose (Market & Taylor – right off 87) on February 4th, 2010. Due to unprecedented demand for tickets, Cirque du Soleil has added 3 additional weeks of performances to the San Jose engagement of Ovo. Tickets to the general public will be available Monday, December 21 at 9am at www.cirquedusoleil.com/ovo or at 1-800-450-1480.
Will you be buying tickets to see this? I’m pretty excited about this for a number of reasons: I think it’s awesome that Cirque du Soleil is only a few blocks from my house and that I don’t have to fly to Las Vegas to see their new show. Instead, they are coming right to me! I’ve only seen Mystere at Treasure Island Hotel in Las Vegas so I’ll be checking out Ovo on opening night! It looks pretty extraordinary. Make sure you get your tickets soon, as it sounds like it’s going to be a hot ticket!
Here’s some information about the show from the press release:
The name OVO means “egg” in Portuguese. This timeless symbol of the life cycle and birth of numerous insects represents the underlying thread of the show. Graphically, OVO hides an insect in its name: The two letter “Os” represent the eyes while the letter “V” forms the nose.
OVO is a headlong rush into a colorful 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. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.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’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. OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.
