Cirque du Soleil presents ‘Ovo’ — Two tickets available for BCC members

Cirque du Soleil’s touring big top production “Ovo” is hitting Minneapolis this spring!

“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.

Overflowing with contrasts, “Ovo” reveals the hidden, secret world at our feet 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.

With a vibrant score inspired by the music of Brazil, this show is fun for the whole family!

Starting Thursday, May 26, “Ovo” will perform for a limited engagement under the trademark blue and yellow Grand Chapiteau at the Mall of America. For more information on the show, visit Cirque du Soleil. To purchase tickets, visit “Ovo” in Minneapolis
