I've never really been into Cirque du Soleil. It's not that I dislike it or anything, just had never really been interested too much in it. I don't know why, just happened that way I suppose.
I knew so little of Cirque du Soleil that I didn't realize it had originated in Montreal, and the topic of it didn't come up until we were literally walking past it.
The conversation was something like this:
Mrs. LB: We should check out Cirque du Soleil.
LB: Oh yeah?
Mrs. LB: It got its start here in Montreal. We just walked past it.
LB: Is that what those big yellow tents were?
We talked about it and Mrs. LB was a bit worried about the cost (cheapest seats were 80 I think). But we figured that since we were on our 10-year anniversary trip and were at the birthplace of Cirque du Soleil, we should take advantage of the show. We bought tickets for the Sunday show so it would be one of the last things we experienced in Montreal.
WOW! Did we ever save the best for last?!? I was blown away by the show.
I didn't know here that I'd be in for the time of my life.
The show has some awesome costumes, amazing music and, of course, the unique costumes. Mrs. LB tried on a cool-looking but too-expensive mask during intermission.
The name of the show is called OVO and, well, I'd probably bore you with too many details but here's a trailer for the show. It is about insects and an egg and, uh, well, lots of stunts and acrobatics and great music.
It's so awesome! I will watch it again one day, hopefully, if it comes to Las Vegas, I might just make the trip.
