Cirque du Soleil is returning to Colorado for the first time in 3 years

The show-stopping acrobats of Cirque du Soleil are returning to the Centennial State.

DENVER — Cirque du Soleil has announced it will bring one of its touring circuses to Colorado for the first time since 2019.

The company said its production of "Ovo" will stop in Loveland, Colorado Springs and Denver later this summer.

"A colorful intrusion into a new day in the life of insects," "Ovo" will not be performing under Cirque's iconic big top, but will instead perform inside Budweiser Events Center, Broadmoor World Arena and Ball Arena.

"Ovo" — meaning "egg" in Portuguese — is comprised of 100 people from 25 countries, including 52 artists, with high-level acrobatic acts.

"Ovo" will first perform in Loveland on Aug. 26. Tickets for all three Colorado cities are on sale now.

"Through show-stopping acrobatics highlighting the unique personalities and abilities of selected insect species, 'Ovo' explores the beauty of biodiversity in all its contrasts and vibrancy," said a release from Cirque du Soleil.

"From mighty crickets bouncing off trampolines to a hypnotic spider contorting inside her web, 'Ovo' exudes extraordinary showmanship to tickle the imagination. Funny and chaotic, yet adorable and wonderful, 'Ovo' charms our inner child with its sweet exuberance."

Since its opening in Montreal in 2009, "Ovo" has been seen by more than seven million people in 155 cities in 26 different countries.

The last Cirque du Soleil production to perform in Denver was "Corteo" at Ball Arena in August 2019.
