An acrobatic production is coming to First Direct Arena.

Canadian entertainment company Cirque du Soleil is returning to First Direct Arena next month with a revisited high-energy and high-acrobatic production of OVO. 

Meaning egg in Portuguese, OVO is a highly animated intrusion into a new day in the life of insects - from mighty crickets bouncing off trampolines to a hypnotic spider contorting inside her web.

The new production, which includes 100 people from 25 different countries, will feature three new acts and new characters for a show that appeals to all ages.

Duncan Fisher, of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, said: “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.”
