There are so many stunningly impressive aspects of Cirque du Soleil OVO: The athletic artistry of the performing artists, the colorful and beautiful costumes, the creative storyline, the live band and the singer that provide the moving music throughout the show, the amazing set including the video wall and more, make this production a must see! Cirque du Soleil OVO is at the Schottenstein Center for seven performances May 17 – 21.

Gary The Arena Guy went backstage for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the production, including rehearsals, an inside look at the wardrobe department and even had an ‘audition’ by attempting a handstand with Kyle Cragle, the Dragonfly in the OVO, who may just be the most flexible and limber person in the world (unlike The Arena Guy)!
