A night out with the family is a perfect way to spend a summer evening. We headed up to the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL, to watch the opening night of Cirque du Soleil OVO. It was a wonderful show, enjoyed by the entire family.
Cirque du Soleil will be performing at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL July 13 - 23. Cirque du Soleil will be performing at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, FL July 28 - 30.

Cirque du Soleil OVO
We arrived roughly 30 minutes before the start of show and headed to the concession stands to pick up some treats and then head to our seats. We sat in Section 105, Row 12 and had a great view of the stage.
As we got comfortable in our seats, the girls quickly noticed a few "bug collectors" walking up and down the aisles. We loved this up close interaction with the audience as we all anxiously waited for the show to begin.
Did you know that Ovo means "egg" in Portuguese and represents the underlying thread throughout the show? The performance began with a large egg sitting centerstage. A "fly" brings this egg to the creatures and all are fascinated by its size.
Throughout the show all sorts of insects fill the stage and do acrobats unlike anything we had ever seen. The girls sat at the edge of their seats amazed by what the performers could do.
One of our favorites was the dancing ants during the first act. The ants were able to balance large drum-like objects and even other ants on their feet and peddle them. It was incredible.
My daughters loved one of the final acts the most, the crickets. These creatures jumped on the bounciest trampoline onto a rock-wall. The tumbling and how they could synchronize every leap, jump and flip was impressive.
Bringing the family to Cirque du Soleil OVO allowed us to experience the arts in a way that left us all in amazement. My girls could see how hard work and dedication by these performers can bring such a high-quality performance. I highly recommend bringing the family to Cirque du Soleil OVO while it is performing locally.
