Cirque du Soleil: OVO

I've seen several of their shows, and I must say this is one of the happiest I've experienced so far. The music is a mix of bossa nova, samba, forro, electronic Brazilian tunes, and sometimes I felt I was hearing music with a 70's splash. Great production by Deborah Colker, the show is sensual and romantic, happy and sentimental, colourful and powerful at the same time - love the customs of all insects, specially the lady bug, which falls in love with a mosquito.

Montrealers, you are the first to see the Cirque du Soleil shows, and don't miss the one. In case you can't find tickets for Montreal, don't forget Quebec City is just a short trip away. Ovo means egg in Portuguese.
