If you have seen any of the Cirque du Soleil shows, you know that they are wildly acrobatic, colorful and just plain amazing to watch and OVO is no different. The cast is comprised of 54 performing artists from 16 different countries and every scene is one "ooh" and "ahh" after another.
We were brought to our seats by an usher and I was ecstatic to find out that we were 6 rows away from the stage. Although the tent probably held more than 1000 people, I think any seat would have been perfect to see every aspect of the show being that the stage was a circle.
The choreography and the music combined were just captivating and engaging. It put me in a good mood and made me want to get up and dance. I resisted buying the CD because we had spent enough on gas, tolls, & snacks. Immediately the next morning my son downloaded the free MP3 from the Cirque De Soleil website by joining their newsletter. He has been playing it everyday afterschool! Not to mention he also has been reading every fact he can find about how much it costs to produce the show and how they make the tents and costumes.
This was a great family night out and would love to see it again. I really can't say what was my favorite part because I loved every aspect of the show. Now my kids are on a mission to see every Cirque Du Soleil show they can! If you have a chance to see it in New York or the rest of country, it is so worth it. The show is playing through June 6 in New York City. It is also coming soon to Hartford, Boston, Washington, and Atlanta.
And finally, for those who like to be pampered there is the VIP Tapis Rouge package which includes the best seats in the house and access to the VIP suite one hour before the show and during the intermission which includes food and drinks. I can't tell you the types of food or drinks they had as we did not have access to that suite. For more details on what is included in the VIP package, visit cirquedusoleil.com
