There are few Circus acts which hold as much gravitas as Cirque Du Soleil, so we were delighted to be invited down to the launch night of their show OVO. This show has been touring the world for a while now, but this was the first time it was on UK soil and in none other than the Royal Albert Hall.
For those of you who live under a rock and have not heard of Cirque Du Soleil, they bring together the best circus performers from around the world and wrap it all together with dance and theatrics.
Some of the performers are previous world-class athletes some former Olympians! So you should expect the standard of performance to be high. With over 50 performers making up the troop, it seems everyone right down to the riggers take their role very seriously and have practised very hard to make their contribution to the show count.
The level of detail in the choreography really did surprise me, and despite very technical transitions of apparatus, everything flowed seamlessly.
