Cirque du Soleil raises the bar
CIRQUE du Soleil is famous for its dazzling acrobatic displays, and its new show, OVO, at Northshore Hamilton, does not disappoint.
Brisbane is the first stop on the Australian tour and the River City is delighted to welcome Cirque du Soleil back.
OVO invites you into the wonderful and colourful insect world full of beetles, bugs, grasshoppers and spiders.
The OVO set and costumes have been masterfully designed to bring the characters to life under Cirque du Soleil's trademark blue and yellow big top.
All the classic circus acts are there - synchronised balancing acts, trapeze displays, tightrope walking, juggling and trampolining feats - but Cirque du Soleil has raised the bar to a new level.
The physicality of the performers will amaze you. They appear to defy human limitations with their extraordinary strength and flexibility.
The show is a hit for all age groups, with humour woven into the storyline to keep the audience engaged throughout.
The orchestra and vocalists add another impressive dimension to the show.
Quite simply, the performance is spectacular.
To complete the experience, the nearby Novotel Brisbane Airport offers a spacious and comfortable home away from home.
With friendly and accommodating staff, spotlessly clean and well-appointed rooms and secure undercover parking, it's the perfect place to stay.
For those who appreciate the comforts of home, you will be pleased to find internet access, a Nespresso coffee machine, magazines, cosy robes, slippers and toiletries provided.
A well-equipped gymnasium (including sauna) and rooftop pool are available for those keen to work up an appetite, perhaps before enjoying the generous buffet breakfast.
After refuelling, you'll be ready to hit the shops at the factory outlets which are a two-minute walk from the hotel.
The Novotel Brisbane Airport is the closest international hotel to the Northshore Hamilton venue, making it an ideal hotel choice for regional visitors.
