Cirque du Soleil is a global phenomenon that has entranced audiences with its live circus shows featuring all types of performances including acrobatics, stunts and musical performances. The company hires the best performers, showing off amazing feats and what the human body is capable of. Las Vegas is a city known for having a lot of Cirque du Soleil shows including The Beatles LOVE, Michael Jackson ONE, Mystère, O, and KÀ. Soon, Los Angeles will be joining the list. Today, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group and Microsoft Theater have announced that the City of Angels will be its new home for the updated OVO show and more.

Los Angeles was the first place outside of Canada where Cirque du Soleil was performed, and the city will be home to the new OVO show in the spring of 2022. It’s a five-year partnership between the two, with OVO opening on March 16, 2022, with a series of over 50 performances until May 1, 2022 at the Microsoft Theater. Each spring for the next five years, those in the LA area will get to see a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

Tickets for the show are now available to Club Cirque members, and sales will open up to the general public on December 3, 2021.

“We are excited to have found a new home for our touring shows at the heart of Downtown L.A,” said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. “Microsoft Theater is an iconic venue perfectly located within L.A. LIVE; to add Cirque du Soleil to the impressive list of talent who have performed on its stage is truly an honor.”

”Microsoft Theater is incredibly excited and we look forward to welcoming Cirque du Soleil and their world renowned shows and entertainment to L.A. LIVE starting in March 2022 and continuing are partnership through 2027,” Lee Zeidman, President, STAPLES Center, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE.

For its Las Vegas locations, Cirque du Soleil has been reopening its resident shows Mystère, “O”, The Beatles LOVE and Michael Jackson ONE. KÀ will be reopening on November 24, 2021. OVO’s return marks the relaunch of the company’s worldwide touring operations, with Alegría coming to Houston in November 2021, LUZIA in London (January 2022) and KOOZA in Punta Cana (January 2022).

“Intermission is over,” added Mike Newquist, Senior Vice President – Touring Shows at Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. “Travelling to invoke the imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world has always been the core mission of Cirque du Soleil; to be able to do it all over again at Microsoft Theater with OVO sparks an indescribable feeling of pride in all our artists and employees.”

Comprised of 52 performers from over 15 countries, the cast of OVO (“egg” in Portuguese) brings to the stage 10 high-level acrobatic acts redefining the limits of the human body.
