OVO from Cirque du Soleil® at the Santa Monica Pier

Cirque du Soleil returns to the Santa Monica Pier under the trademark blue-and-yellow Grand Chapiteau with its critically-acclaimed and family-friendly big top touring show, OVO. Since its world-premiere in Montreal in 2009, OVO has charmed well over 2 million spectators in more than 15 different cities in North America. Santa Monica will be the only Southern California stop for the Grand Chapiteau (Big Top) production in 2012.

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.
