Portland, April 5th. Cirque du Soleil’s OVO is a breathtaking and innovative view of  insect life and the VIP lounge was buzzing just like the elaborately costumed performers on stage. Joe Donlon had his wife, Kathy on his arm and Matt Zaffino enjoyed a night out with his wife, Robyn.

There are several amazing aspects to the show including performers dangling 20 feet above the stage and  a rock wall acrobatic ballet.
