Cirque Du Soleil is Back in Houston with Ovo.
The wife and I attended the private preview of Cirque Du Soleil’s latest creation: Ovo. This is Cirque’s eighth visit to H-town and first since 2009.
This was my first time experiencing a Cirque show. It certainly has a reputation, and Ovo lived up to the high standards set by previous productions. Follow a large egg (ovo) on a spectacular, mesmerizing, and jaw-dropping journey–all under a giant tent in Sam Houston Race Track’s parking lot.
I’m not a circus guy. Cirque is like a very sophisticated circus, without the freakish clowns. Instead, you get plenty of ambidextrous women in body suits doing things most females only dare to dream. I guess there are guys too. Didn’t really notice. Everyone involved works in perfect harmony as they walk on tight ropes, jump off trampolines, and twist around bent poles.
I am so glad I went and would highly recommend this show to anyone. The entire flow of the production is seamless. Ovo starts tomorrow at Sam Houston Race Park and runs through April 10th.
