Broadway theatrics, circus acrobatics and a vague storyline laced with deep philosophical meaning. That's right, Cirque du Soleil is coming back to Cleveland in 2016, this time to perform its new "OVO" production.

The show's storyline basically surrounds an egg ("ovo" means "egg" in Portuguese), and the love story of a "gawky, quirky" insect who finds a "fabulous" ladybug that strikes his fancy, according to the production's press release. Needless to say, this isn't a typical love story. There are, however, the typical Cirque du Soleil theatrics, including 50 performers from 12 countries.



The performers will be swinging from the CSU Wolstein Center's ceiling on a yet-to-be-announced date in 2016. For more information, click here.
