Amway Center News: Cirque du Soleil OVO coming to Orlando in the Fall
Cirque du Soleil returns to Orlando presenting its newest touring arena show, OVO, never before played in Florida. OVO presented by Visa Signature®, plays the Amway Center September 21 – 25 for seven performances. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 25 at 10 a.m.
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.
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 a group of scarabs soar high above – from each corner of the stage – and land together on a platform in the middle.
The Creative Team behind the world of OVO is:
- Artistic Guides Guy Lalibertéand Gilles Ste-Croix
- Writer, Director and Choreographer Deborah Colker(first female director at Cirque du Soleil)
- Director of Creation Chantal Tremblay
- Set and Prop Designer Gringo Cardia

- Lighting Designer Éric Champoux
- Sound Designer Jonathan Deans
