The high-flying acrobats of Cirque du Soleil set their microscopes on the insect world with “OVO,” a family-friendly circus spectacle that exposes the beauty of the lowest levels of our ecosphere. Like the lost Disney adaptation of Kafka’s Metamorphosis, the show bridges the gap between humans and their minuscular counterparts with the help of whimsical costumes and set designs. As the first act begins, a monolithic egg lands in the midst of a bustling insect community, raising a commotion among the many-legged residents. Ants and crickets creep across the stage’s webby backdrop, extending their antennae for a peek at the mysterious object. By the time a gawky blue insect arrives onstage and a ladybug sets his heart aflutter, audiences are cocooned to their seats in awe of the stylized habitat. Creature-themed stunts and dance routines fill the show’s nine acts, which include a juggling firefly, a trapeze troupe of scarabs, and a pair of Spanish butterflies engaged in a rousing thumb-wrestling bout.

Perhaps the first tent ever erected to promote the spread of insects, the Grant Chapiteau dazzles crowds of 2,600 with its organic, geometric backdrops and atmospheric lighting. Music by Brazilian-born composer Berna Ceppas intermingles samba, electro-beats, and samples from underground stars to provide a soundtrack that captures the show’s swarming energy.
