Cirque du Soleil return to the Royal Albert Hall with new show OVO
Cirque du Soleil bring their new show to London.
Having already opened the show in North America OVO is described as "a celebration of nature and co-existence" and makes its European debut in Zurich later this year. The London run follows Amaluna, which previously ran at the Royal Albert Hall in 2015 and 2016.
OVO brings together 50 performing artists from 17 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. Alanna Baker from Greater London plays the role of the Black Spider in the show, returning to the UK following performances around the world in cities such as Japan and Australia.
Written, directed and choreographed by Deborah Colker it features set and props design by Gringo Cardia, costume design by Liz Vandal, music by Berna Ceppas, lighting design by Éric Champoux, sound design by Jonathan Deans and rigging and acrobatic equipment design by Fred Gérard.
"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. 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 is 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 tickets are now on sale.
