Cirque to present ‘Ovo’ at Atlantic Station

By Jamie Gumbrecht

Cirque du Soleil will return to Atlantic Station this year with “Ovo,” a portrayal of  “the teeming and energetic world of insects.” The idea gave us the willies, until we calmed down enough to remember those insects will be handsomely costumed and unthinkably acrobatic Cirque performers — 54 in all.  “Ovo,” which means egg in Portuguese, will open Nov. 4, and is directed  by Deborah  Colker, the first female director at Cirque du Soleil. Advance tickets sales begin for Cirque Club members at 9 a.m. today at www.cirquedusoleil.com. (It’s free to join.) Tickets cost $55 to $130.

Performances will be at 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sundays. This isn’t the first time a grand performance tent has gone up in Atlantic Station; it already has hosted Cirque du Soleil’s “Kooza” and “Corteo” and the acrobat-and-horse show “Cavalia.”
