Believe the hype! There's NO 'bad' seat in the house. We were seated in section 103/row G, just 7 rows away from the stage. There was soooo much going on allover the stage and in the aisles. What a colorful performance! I felt like a kid again. The "ooohs!" The "aaahs!" The excitement of if all. The choreography was amazing, the set design/stage dècor was grand. The audience participation was hilarious. The cast blended well together. The lighting. The music. The timing. The special effects. The...everything! I almost forgot I was in a tent. It was money WELL spent.
Overall, I give it ***** (five stars)! It was, indeed, an AWEsome show! REALLY wish I could've taken pictures, but it was just great to be there. "Ovo" is portuguese for "egg"...and that's all the "spoiler" you're gonna get outta me!
This was my first, but not last, Cirque du Soleil show. I'll be back, for sure. I cannot wait!
