I was able to attend the Salt Lake City showing of Cirque Du Soleil’s, OVO. The show was absolutely incredible!! I had never had the chance to attend a Cirque Du Soleil show before and I was blown away!!  The entertainers had such talent and executed their parts perfectly!!! The show had amazing costumes! The bright colors and details really made it so fun to watch!! My husband and I kept looking at each other in awe of how amazing each act was!!

Each act was highlighting a different type of bug. I couldn’t believe how creative they were when incorporating the act into bug form!! Here are some of my favorite parts of the show!


This was such a beautiful act! The butterfly emerging from the cocoon. This act was done on the silks and was so incredible to watch the transformation take place!!


This creature was so crazy to watch!! It was hard to tell most of the time if there was even a person inside! The way that is twisted and turned was so crazy and nothing I had ever seen before!


This act was unbelievable! He walked, jumped, rolled , and swung on the slack wire! He then topped off his performance by throwing in a unicycle!!! I don’t know how he does it!! We were mesmerized by this act!

I would highly recommend this show when it comes back to SLC!! I loved it and I would see it again.

Cirque du Soleil’s OVO show coming to Salt Lake City

Cirque du Soleil’s OVO show coming to Salt Lake City

I am so excited for the upcoming Cirque du Soleil show heading to Salt Lake City. The OVO show will be performing at the Maverick Center, Wednesday, February 22nd through Sunday, February 26th. “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.”(Excerpt from the Cirque Du Soleil website.)

To kick off the show I attended an event at the Leonardo Museum. We were able to learn more about the upcoming OVO show and get up close and personal with Kim’s Cold Blooded Creatures. Kim brought many of her insects and taught us all about them. She even let us hold some of them!! I personally didn’t have it in me to hold the tarantula, but many people did and it was a very cool experience!

The kids had so much fun creating their very own bug masks. They had lots of feathers, jewels, and glitter to choose from to add bright and colorful accents onto their masks.

This is going to be such an exciting show that you are not going to want to miss!! Make sure and get your tickets before they are sold out!!
