Cirque du Soleil OVO in Sydney under its trademark blue-and-yellow 20 metre tall Big Top at The Entertainment Quarter returns for the first time in over four years.
OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, 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 cast of OVO is comprised of 54 performing artists from 16 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning flying trapeze act, in which six flyers soar 40 feet in the air, making this the biggest act of its kind to ever be presented under a big top by Cirque du Soleil. It combines many circus disciplines, including banquine, Russian swing and swinging chair. The finale features 20 artists running, jumping and leaping up a 24-foot vertical wall.
Tickets for OVO may be purchased in person at Cirque du Soleilbox office, located inside the Big Top’s entrance tent. Regular box office hours are from 2 hours prior to show time to 30 minutes after the beginning of the show from Tuesday through Sunday.
