Cirque du Soleil is back this October featuring “OVO” a riveting world underground

Have you ever had the enthralling experience of watching gymnasts spin through the air, acrobats contort themselves in seemingly impossible positions, and performers execute stunts capable of only the bravest of heart? Cirque du Soleil comes to Santo Domingo October 27th – 30th, and this year’s show “OVO” is born from the creative notion of what it would be like to live under our feet. Not so different from the reality we currently possess, this ecosystem elaborates how insects work, eat, fight, play, and fall in love – albeit with incredibly colorful costumes and theatrics.

OVO means “egg” in Portuguese and the show symbolizes the cycle of life and birth of numerous insects. When an unknown egg appears, the community becomes very curious, and it is a fabulous ladybug who falls in love with the quirky, new insect in town. See how the story plays out in a surreal world of juxtaposition. Known for its daring routines and captivating performances, Cirque du Soleil’s motto is: “We invoke the imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world.”

What you can expect:

  • Foot juggling as hard-working ants toss their kiwis and corn, and also fellow companions too!
  • A dragonfly’s hand balancing act amidst a vert viny eggplant stalk
  • High speed diabolo performed by a firefly
  • A spider who defies gravity upside down on a unicycle, traversing a wire with more than 15 feet below
  • Acrobats who flip across a vertical wall using only trampolines for speed
  • The sensuality of a spider who spins a web of spells
  • And more!
    Written and directed by Deborah Colker, OVO by Cirque du Soleil will be held in the Palacio de Los Deportes and tickets can be purchased online at tuboleta or Ticketexpress, or at points of sale including La Sirena, Supermercados Pola and Spring Center. Tickets range from $1,500 to $ 4,500. Read more about the characters, complexity of acts, and costumes here, where Liz Vandal, costumer designer of OVO says she was inspired by “Pierre Cardin, who focused on graphic lines and geometric shapes.” She continues: “The result is a sort of organic origami.”

    Don’t miss Cirque du Soleil this October!


    When: October 27th – 30th

    Where: Palacio de Los Deportes, Santo Domingo

    Tickets: tuboleta or Ticketexpress, La Sirena, Supermercados Pola, and Spring Center

    Costs: RD $1,500 – $4,500

The musical event is organized by the Educational Foundation for the Dominican Republic Jazz Festival, with the support of the Ministry of Tourism.

The Festival will open on November 8th in Santo Domingo and will continue on the 9th in Santiago, at the Leon Cultural Center.

On November 10th the Festival heads up to Puerto Plata, on the north coast, and will conclude on the 11th and 12th in Cabarete Beach, also on the north coast.

The Foundation has also included in the Festival’s program workshops and classes for young music students. Also, jam sessions with some of the visiting musicians.

For this special 20th anniversary, the Festival will be dedicated to women jazz musicians.  All events will be headed by top women jazz musicians.  The theme of the Festival is the promotion of gender equality and an end to violence against women.

The Dominican Republic Jazz Festival is free to the general public.  In 2015, more than 12,000 attended the jazz concerts.


The Festival promotes the cultural exchange between the D.R. and other jazz-loving nations, and offers special music-oriented programs for some 200 children and young adults in the country’s public schools.

The students receive piano, guitar, percussion, violin, cello, saxophone, and flute and trumpet classes.

At the same, while waiting for their children to conclude their special musical training, some 40 of the student’s mothers and women from various communities receive training on how to make jewelry, handbags and carpets with the support of the Dominican Technical Institute.


This year there will be a special exhibit, depicting the graphic history of the festival, organized by plastic artist Adolfo Faringthon.
