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 Ladybug!

The Ladybug is big and strong (but doesn’t realize it) and full of life. Unlike all the other insects in the community she is not part of a family. She’s all alone and lonely, and she’s secretly waiting for something wonderful to happen in her life… something like love. When The Foreigner arrives carrying a strange egg she’s excited by the possibility that her life – and everyone else’s – could be about to change.

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