"OVO"

The performers of Cirque du Soleil appear in "OVO."
Hatching a new show Cirque du Soleil presents `OVO'

The first question for Marjon Van Grunsven, artistic director of the Cirque du Soleil production of "OVO," was going to be what the artistic director of a Cirque show actually does.
The phone call for the interview was placed at the pre-arranged time, and Van Grunsven picked up immediately. But not to answer any questions right then. "It's a little bit hectic," she explained. Could she call back the number that had shown up on her cell phone in about five or 10 minutes?
Thirty-minutes later we started talking again, but that opening question had pretty much already been answered. Some last-minute lineup changes in the cast for the next performance had been necessitated, and Van Grunsven had to make sure everything was well covered. "Sometimes that's our reality," she said. So the responsibilities of the artistic director ... "One of which you just experienced live - to make sure the show that goes on stage is perfect."
The show was in Hartford, at the time. Tomorrow, "OVO" officially opens under the famed Cirque du Soleil ("Circus of the Sun") blue and yellow "Grand Chapiteau" for an engagement through Aug. 29 at Fan Pier and Pier 4 on Boston's "new waterfront" that will draw thousands of people from across New England.read more at: http://www.telegram.com/article/20100721/NEWS/100729947/1011Cirque du Soleil: `OVO'WHEN: Thursday-Aug. 29WHERE: Fan Pier and Pier 4 waterfront, BostonHOW MUCH: $40-$225; children 2-12, $28-$178.50; students and seniors, $36-$207FOR INFORMATION: call (800) 450-1480 or visit www.cirquedusoleil.com/ovo
