Coming Attraction: 'OVO' from Cirque du Soleil

Cirque du Soleil's "OVO"
The famous blue-and-yellow tent, aka The Grand Chapiteau, has once again been raised at the Santa Monica Pier, this time ahead of Cirque du Soleil's show, "OVO."

Opening Jan. 20 right next to the ocean, "OVO" tells the story of a vibrant ecosystem that can be seen from a bug's-eye view. Big, bright and beautiful costumes (did you check out the above pic?) will share the spotlight with Cirque's trademark acrobats and other performers.

A mysterious egg will also come into play, along with a love connection between an awkward bug and a colorful ladybug with personality.

The last time CC and I watched Cirque under the Grand Chapiteau, it was truly magical -- especially next to crashing waves in the foggy night air.
