One of the things that my husband and I both love to share with our children is our love of the arts. We often take the kids to museums, musical performances and theater productions so they have the opportunity to be exposed to different styles, cultures, sights and sounds. So, when I got an email about an opportunity to see OVO from Cirque du Soleil, I was intrigued.

For more than 25 years, Cirque du Soleil has been known for its amazing acrobatics and fantastic imagery. Each show, including Zumanity, O and Mystere, pushes the creative envelope. OVO looks like it is going to be one of Cirque du Soleil's most family friendly shows, so I am really excited. Tickets go on sale to the public on November 13, but I'm going to tell you how to get them now!


OVO from Cirque du Soleil 

Under the Big Top at the Santa Monica Pier January 20-March 25, 2012 

Be the first to buy tickets before they go on sale to the public on November 13!

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.  

The costumes and set design look amazing; just imagine seeing the world through the eyes of insects! To me, this opens up so many things you could talk about with your children. In addition, the music is described as "intermingled Brazilian samba music, electronic beats and sampled insects sounds". You can see and read much more by going to

    This looks amazing. My boys loved Cirque’s last show and they love insects. Sounds like it’s a sure winner for our family. Tickets can be a bit pricey though so I’m going to check out the Family 4 pack.
