Win Tickets To See OVO At The Amway Center

Cirque du Soleil Ovo Amway Center Orlando

Disclosure: I received tickets to see Ovo from Cirque du Soleil at the Amway Center to host this giveaway, but all opinions are my own. 

Over the years I’ve seen several Cirque du Soleil shows, and I was really excited to see that OVO will be performed here in Orlando from September 21 to 25, 2016 at the Amway Center.

Thrilling more than 4.5 million people worldwide since the show premiered in 2009, OVO embarks 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.
