For God knows how long, I've been wanting to see Cirque du Soleil live. Seeing it live is in my bucket list for sure. Now I can cross that off my list because yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, I got to see OVO by Cirque du Soleil!

It was one of the most mind blowing and beautiful things I have ever seen! Everything about it was fabulous. The costume, the set, the music, the lighting, and most importantly the acts and choreography. It was my most well spent $90. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it.

They have the most beautiful insects that can do crazy stuff with their bodies. OVO has everything; jugglers, trapeze troops, clowns, contortionists, tight rope walker, even aerial rope dancers.
Here is the story line and what the media says about the show (

OVO 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. 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.

" Death-defying Butterflies, foot-juggling Ants, contortionist Spiders, high-bounding Crickets... "

San Francisco Chronicle
“THRILLING...such stupendous feats of physical grace and athleticism that they’ll LEAVE YOU GASPING.”

New York Post
I can't believe that I have actually seen Cirque du Soleil live! It feels like a dream, because OVO was absolutely dreamy with its vibrant colors, joy and energy.
If Cirque du Soleil ever comes to your city, please give yourself some love and go see it. The ticket was a bit hard to get (not to mention pricy) because the show is (almost) always sold out, but seriously, it is worth the money and energy!

We were not allowed to take pictures or video tape anything inside the tent and most importantly when the show was on for the whole 2,5 hours (with a 30 minutes break). So I took the liberty to gather some beautiful pictures from all over the web to give you a glimpse of how fantastic and genius the show was.
