OVO from Cirque du Soleil is Fantastic – A Must-See

Friday, December 4th, 2009

Don’t miss your chance to see OVO from Cirque du Soleil down at the Le Grand Chapiteau tent in the parking lot of AT&T Park. Hurry, the whole shebang is heading down to San Hoser next month. 

OVO is fantastic.

Here are a bunch of photos from Adam Lau, but it’s hard to show what the show is like without video. And even then, you still don’t get the sense of how close you are to the action. 

OVO’s been going been going for a week or so, but people were calling yesterday’s performance Opening Night – the food was free for some reason and there were a lot of San Francisco Swells and/or People You’d Recognize in the crowd, including Olympic Gold Medal-winning Kristi Yamaguchi - she’s now Twittering about how she was in “constant awe“ last night.

Myself, I liked the suspended rope bit from Maxim Kozlov and Inna Mayorova best but the whole show was great.

The kiwi ants were memorable…

See you there!
