Cirque du Soleil is thrilled to announce its return to the UK for the first time in six years with its newly revisited high-energy and high-acrobatic production OVO. An exciting Cirque du Soleil experience, OVO is a colourful intrusion into a new day in the life of insects; a non-stop riot of energy and movement. Through show-stopping acrobatics highlighting the unique personalities and abilities of selected insect species, OVO explores the beauty of biodiversity in all its contrasts and vibrancy. Loved by children and adults alike, OVO’s return to the UK for its 2024 arena run will appeal to audiences of all ages once again, but this time with 3 new acts and characters to excite the crowds.

“We are thrilled to be bringing an updated version of OVO back to the UK for the first time in six years.
In 2018, OVO’s tour of the UK was so successful it became Cirque du Soleil’s most watched show ever in the UK. So, we are delighted to be bringing OVO back to the UK in collaboration with our partner Live Nation.” Duncan Fisher, President - Touring Shows, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group.

Guests have the option to elevate their experience with an exclusive post-show Meet & Greet where they can interact with select members of the cast and touring crew and capture the moment with a photo opportunity.

Check out the reviews of OVO from its premier night:

The AO Arena was infected with insects last night, and it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen.

Cirque du Soleil OVO a triumph.

OVO is entertainment of the highest order as you are welcomed into the eco system of insects and bugs happily going about their business.

Every aspect of this production is majestic, from the gorgeous staging and the stupendous costumes - to the terrific acts and the remarkable score.
