Cirque du Soleil is delighted to announce a brand-new UK arena tour with OVO. This summer OVO, a celebration of nature and co-existence will bring its fun-filled production for the whole family to arenas around the country. Following on from its UK debut in London in January; where OVO officially became the highest selling Cirque du Soleil performance run to visit the city, the arena tour starts in Liverpool on 16 August 2018, and the show will then visit Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester and finally Birmingham, Belfast ending on October 21st, 2018. Tickets on sale now via the Cirque du Soleil website or at www.livenation.co.uk.

The cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 17 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. This includes Alanna Baker from the United Kingdom who plays the role of the Black Spider in the show. She was crowned gymnastics European Champion in 2011 and won Bronze in the World Championships in 2012. Alanna, who has been training since she was five years old has travelled around the world with OVOto countries as far reaching as Japan and Australia and is now set for a return to her home here in the UK.

Having thrilled more than 5 million people worldwide since the show premiered in Montreal in 2009 as a Big Top show, OVOembarks on a journey, offering the same captivating production as the Big Top performances, but on a larger scale now, visiting major arenas and venues, including those around the UK.

OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, 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. 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.

Cirque du Soleil brings OVO to arenas around the UK from 16 August – 7 October 2018. Tickets on sale nowvia the Cirque du Soleil website or at www.livenation.co.uk.
