Cirque Du Soliel’s OVO Returns To Jacksonville In August!!









Cirque du Soleil returns to Jacksonville with its touring arena show OVO after having to cancel shows in October due to Hurricane Matthew.

To honor its commitment in Jacksonville, OVO will be performing at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena from August 2 to 6, 2017.


Thrilling more than 5 million people worldwide since the show premiered in 2009, OVO has embarked on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, now in arenas, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their hometown.

Just in time for the holidays, tickets for the general public will be available starting Friday, December 9th, 2016 at . Adult tickets start at $35 and child tickets start at $25 (subject to change).


About The Show


OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful 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.


The cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 12 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning Flying Act where group of scarabs soar high above – from each corner of the stage – and land together on a platform in the middle.

The company has brought wonder and delight to more than 160 million spectators in more than 400 cities on six continents. Cirque du Soleil has almost 4,000 employees, including 1,300 performing artists from about 50 different countries.
