OVO by Cirque du Soleil opens September 9 under the blue-and-yellow Grand Chapiteau at The Plateau at National Harbor.

OVO is a headlong rush into a colourful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.

Meet this weeks character – the Diabolos Firefly!

In a mix of high-speed diabolo and seemingly impossible juggling a firefly sends one, two, three and finally an astonishing four spinning spools arcing very high in the Grand Chapiteau and back to earth in perfect coordination.

Get to know the diabolos firefly and all the other fascinating characters throughout the summer and win tickets to OVO by Cirque du Soleil!
