OVO is a headlong rush into a colourful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. The insects’ home is a world of biodiversity and beauty filled with noisy action and moments of quiet emotion.

When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives.

It’s love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.

OVO is overflowing with contrasts. The hidden, secret world at our feet is revealed as tender and torrid, noisy and quiet, peaceful and chaotic. And as the sun rises on a bright new day the vibrant cycle of insect life begins anew.

    I’ve never been to one of their shows and would love to finally be able to check one out :)

  10. Diana March 21, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    I have wanted to go see Cirque Du Soleil since I can remember… since now I could only dream of seeing them! Now I have the chance!

  11. justin March 21, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    Because it would be rad!

  12. Brian March 21, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    I had tickets to a Cirque show in NYC over the holidays but ended up having to postpone the trip and give the tickets away! I’ve never been and would love to go!

  13. ruth March 21, 2012 at 12:42 pm #

    I have been wanting to see any of their shows for a long time and would love to have the opportunity to go with these tickets as their is no way i can afford it otherwise

  14. Hope March 21, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    I’ve yet to see them in show and would love to go when they are here in Portland! Great giveaway. Thanks!

  15. Heather March 21, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    In my SHORT 42 year life span, I’ve NEVER seen a Cirque Du Soleil show! I’d love to go (and take a friend)!

  16. Gary March 21, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    My wife thinks of me as her gawky, quirky insect, so this would be the perfect date night for us!

  17. Helki March 21, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    Oh my GOODNESS! I would love to go on a night with my girlfriend, ditch the men and enjoy a spa before and Cirque after!

  18. Bobbie March 21, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    We love Cirque Du Soleil and we love bugs!

  19. Katherine March 21, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    Never been to a Cirque performance, although if I gained some weight and took some hormones, I could be the big bearded tattooed lady. And who wouldn’t love that?

  20. kristen March 21, 2012 at 12:53 pm #

    I would love to go see this, and free tickets for my boyfriend and me would mean enough $ for a pretty new dress for the occasion! Now tell me pipeline, don’t I deserve a pretty new dress?!

  21. Shaun March 21, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

    I always wanted to see a Cirque show but never have. Even when I lived in Vegas I didn’t take advantage of it. Maybe now’s my chance. ;)

  22. Frank March 21, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

    I’d love to take my niece and nephew to Cirque. Winning tickets would mean that we’d get to buy groceries and drive cars as well!

  23. Tamara Belgard March 21, 2012 at 1:08 pm #

    I want to go sooo badly, I just know it would be oh vo good!!

  24. Maggie March 21, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I desperately need some culture in my life. Please and spank you very much!

  25. Windy March 21, 2012 at 1:12 pm #

    Oh please, yes! I’d love to go because I’ve always heard such wonderful things about Cirque (but have yet to experience it in person).

  26. Patrick Hyde March 21, 2012 at 1:13 pm #

    I would love to go!
    It sounds like so much fun!!
    Didn’t win mega millions…
    so this would be the next best thing ;-)

  27. Traci palmer March 21, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    I would absolutely love love love to win these tickets! I have wanted to go see a cirque du soleil show, any cirque du soleil show for years now! The way they twist and contort and fly through the air performing unbelievable stunts blows my mind. This showed looks especially appealing with the ecosystem theme, how very Portland! Pdx Pipeline rocks, go team!

  28. Gabe March 21, 2012 at 1:27 pm #

    Yes please!

  29. Geoff March 21, 2012 at 1:32 pm #

    I was really excited to be expecting a call back about WORKING for Cirque Du Soleil today. It’s my birthday. Recently I lost my long-term girlfriend followed by my job. So being told I might have this super fun job and then not getting a call back has been the icing on my cake. :P

    I came on PDX Pipeline to check out the local freebies this week and saw this. Thought I might deserve this one.

  30. Micaela Strassburg March 21, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    My neice is turning 15 in April and she really wants to go to this! I would love to be able to surprise her with tickets for her birthday! :)

  31. Joe M. March 21, 2012 at 1:41 pm #

    I would like to check out what may quite possibly be the show to arrive in this town this year!

  32. Deborah D March 21, 2012 at 1:45 pm #

    Really, WHY I’d want to attend? Because it’s Circque du Soleil, of course! I imagine it would be wonderful.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  33. Monica M March 21, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    I love bugs and amazing contorsionist feats!

  34. Erica Schoenborn March 21, 2012 at 2:13 pm #

    I would love to see Cirque Du Soleil for the very first time!! I always see the tent as I’m driving in Portland, but have never been able to see the inside!! Please pick me!

    Thank you for the opportunity!

  35. michelle young March 21, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    I’ve been thoroughly addicted to Cirque ever since I saw Allegria several years ago. I would love to see this one!

  36. Maggie March 21, 2012 at 2:47 pm #

    My current project involves the circus…but in the 1850s near London. It was usually called “horse-riding” in those days and chiefly featured horse dramas and the occasional trained dog. They didn’t even use tents but rather traveled around to wooden pavilions specially provided for roving entertainers. Interesting, no?

    Anyway. This would be a fun counterpoint to all the antiquated excitement I’ve been delving into.

  37. Meg March 21, 2012 at 2:48 pm #

    I know this will be a fabulous show, and I would LOVE to win tickets!

  38. Minna March 21, 2012 at 2:54 pm #

    Ah the Cirque. We loved the reality tee vee show about the development of Varekai. (I was secretly happy to see that olympic – or olympic-level gymnasts have potential careers after they’re out of their teens). Thanks for the chance to win!

  39. MJC March 21, 2012 at 2:55 pm #

    Circque du Soleil is AMAZING! I’ve never been disappointed, and it’s always worth the $$$. This year though, I would love to check it out for free!

  40. Marcela March 21, 2012 at 3:35 pm #

    This sounds like an amazing show with lots of color and music! As a student, I find it rather expensive so would appreciate the free ticket!

  41. Dametris March 21, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    My family has never been able to afford tickets for all of us to go to see this particular circus. I’ve heard about it for years. It would be AWESOME to win tickets to see it!!!
    Thank you for the opportunity in advance.

  42. Wynne March 21, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    Need to find out what is in the mysterious egg.

  43. Ryan March 21, 2012 at 5:07 pm #

    I would really like to take my girlfriend and her son. he is Autistic and I think he would really enjoy Cirque

  44. Adam March 21, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    Whatever you do don’t give it to Michael. Let his girlfriend kill him.

  45. Becca Peterson March 21, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    OH please pick me to go to Cirque!! I’ve wanted to go for years but my schedule never works with their shows. I can finally go this year but can’t afford it now. Help a sister out??

  46. Shelley A. March 21, 2012 at 5:21 pm #

    Insects dancing? OVO by Cirque Du Soleil sounds cool. I’d love to attend.

  47. Kris March 21, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

    I’ve wanted to see a Cirque show for years. I’ve never lived close to one or had anyone who wanted to go with me. Now I have a new friend that desperately wants to go, too!

  48. Kim March 21, 2012 at 5:56 pm #

    Let me take Michaels girlfriend. Girls night at the Cirque! Way more fun!!

  49. Judy March 21, 2012 at 5:59 pm #

    My daughter is finally old enough to appreciate Cirque du Soleil, so I’d love to take her. Can’t afford the tickets myself unfortunately!

  50. Lindsay March 21, 2012 at 6:26 pm #

    I would loooooove to see OVO!

  51. Bridget March 21, 2012 at 6:31 pm #

    I’ve never been to a Cirque de Soleil show, and would love to go!

  52. Ashley March 21, 2012 at 8:25 pm #

    I’ll be turning 24 April 10th, though I can’t find any reason to celebrate like I did when I turned, say 18. My only plan is to grab some drinks with friends, have nice conversation. Then I saw this….please save me from a potentially very boring 24th. I feel old.

  53. Jessica March 21, 2012 at 8:39 pm #

    I want to go badly after watching the Acdemey Awards performance. Amazing!

  54. pj March 21, 2012 at 10:32 pm #

    i kinda wanna win because i know it would piss off my ex. is that bad?

  55. Annabelle March 21, 2012 at 10:58 pm #

    I’ve heard that seeing any show by Cirque Du Soleil is like meeting God and the Devil at the same time. Yes, that profound. As an artist this seems like some grandiose inspiration! I would Bee delighted if I got to drink up such an amazing performance!

  56. Madelyn Morris March 21, 2012 at 11:37 pm #

    I just love insects and biodiversity, It would be so wonderful to celebrate these loves with the phenomenal acrobatics of Cirque du Soleil! I am so excited that ls Cirque is celebrating insects and teaching about the beauty of life, so I want to see this show more than any other!

  57. Alethea March 22, 2012 at 12:17 am #

    According to the Buddhist philosophy of seeing the world as a unified whole where each thing or creature has its place and function, we should not kill insects. Perhaps we can learn another lesson from OVO???

  58. John Jay March 22, 2012 at 6:56 am #

    Please add me, I’d love to take my mom! She has seen zumanity in Vegas. This will be my first cirque du soleil experience. Free tix or no, we’re going! :-D

  59. jacoba anderson March 22, 2012 at 7:14 am #

    I love cirque du soleil. It should be named greatest show on earth. And i would love love love so much to see this show.

  60. Rachel March 22, 2012 at 8:03 am #

    It’s top shelf, theatrical beauty! And I’m a poor, teaching, grad student.

  61. Matt March 22, 2012 at 8:39 am #

    Please send me to fertilize that egg.

  62. Shawn March 22, 2012 at 9:01 am #

    I’ve never had the opportunity to see the show and would LOVE to get tickets to it!

  63. Margaret March 22, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Insect life turns out to be a perfect metaphor of the Cirque world of airborne derring-do…………I would love to see this colourful ecosystem teeming with life…..where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love!!! Thank you, PDX Pipeline, for this wonderful opportunity!!

  64. Laura March 22, 2012 at 12:07 pm #

    Always amazed by the clips and ads for Cirque- would love to tell everyone how amazing PDXPipeline is for tickets while posting from the big top!

  65. Stephi March 22, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I have never been to Cirque de Soleil and would love to see them live!!!!

  66. Kate March 22, 2012 at 1:26 pm #

    this show looks amazing!!! I’d love tickets!!!

  67. Jordan Rose March 22, 2012 at 1:39 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to see cirque du soleil since I was a little kid, but growing up in a small town made it impossible. Now that I live in Portland, I wish I could afford to go! A pair of free tickets would definitely make an old dream come true!

  68. Sarah March 22, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    The performances are so inspiring!

  69. Angelique March 22, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    Im new to Portland and would love to see this show! Thanks :)

  70. Waylon M. March 22, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    I could really use these tickets. My girlfriend is struggling and going through a really hard time and this would lift her spirits so much. One of her dreams is to see a Cirque de Soleil show. Please help me do something great for someone who truly deserves it

  71. Tony March 22, 2012 at 2:04 pm #

    Hook me up with the cirque!

  72. Jill March 22, 2012 at 2:08 pm #

    I Would really love to go to this show… please make a birthday wish come true… 3/29

  73. Roya March 22, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I have never been able to afford to see a Cirque Du Soleil show! This would be such a wonderful surprise for my boyfriend since we haven’t had a good date night in awhile!

  74. Harry March 22, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

    Free tickets to cirque? Sign me up!

  75. Tiger March 22, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    I love insects and I would like to impress this new boy that I’ve been seeing with how much I love insects, and also acrobats. Hopefully it will make him fall in love with me. Thank you in advance for your help with this.

  76. Steven March 22, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    I have seen other Cirque shows before in New York, but it would be great to see this one here without having to leave the state!

  77. Tony March 22, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    Attending this event would be EGG-celent.

  78. Kelly C March 22, 2012 at 2:30 pm #

    I have never been able to afford to see Cirque du Soleil. I would love to take my wife to see the show while it is in town. Being unemployed opens the calendar but closes the bank.

  79. Carol Cook March 22, 2012 at 2:35 pm #

    I Would Love to win tickets, would take disabled little sister!

  80. Vanessa March 22, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    Combination of things I love: bugs, the arts and being bendy. Also I’ve never been to Cirque before…

  81. Corrina Falkenstein March 22, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

    My friends are coming down from Seattle for the show and I’d love to take my daughter and join them!

  82. karylee Harrison March 22, 2012 at 3:06 pm #

  83. Ginny March 22, 2012 at 3:06 pm #

    Absolutely LOVE Cirque–such a wonderful display of athleticism and entertainment.

  84. Allison F. March 22, 2012 at 3:07 pm #

    I’m fluent in French, so I can pronounce “Cirque du soleil” without embarrassing our large French expat population. This should guarantee me entry.

  85. Leah Scherer March 22, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I have never seen it and heard amazing reviews! New to town (came from the east coast!) and would love to experience the venue as well :-) I have a friend coming to visit around then too. Would be super fun to go together! Gosh, I sound like a hyper teenager haha happy picking!

  86. Emily March 22, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    I’ve seen Cirque du Soleil before, and it was amazing, so I’d love to go to this one too, even though I can’t afford it!

  87. Brice March 22, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    My best friend and I have never seen a cirques!! And we want to go to cirque du soleil soo bad!!!

  88. Jamie Lee March 22, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    My son and I are not seeing eye-to-eye the past couple of months…would be great to see Cirque as a fun night out, as opposed to our normal rhythm….he’s 13 !!!

  89. Emily Willard March 22, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    I’ve never gone because I could never afford it. :)

  90. Bianka B March 22, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    I would love to see the wonderful Cirque du Soleil. Bugs!

  91. christina spencer March 22, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    Me without these tickets is like a sneaker without laces, A geek without braces, asentencewithnospaces!!! Its Crazy!! =P I would absolutly love to see this show! :)

  92. Brian Vranizan March 22, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    My wife and I are huge fans of cirque de soleil and would love to go to this show and celebrate our anniversary on style since we first met at a Cirque show we could relive the memories !!!

  93. Nora March 22, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    The biomass of all the social insects in the world far outweighs the biomass of humanity. Worship bees or die a death of a thousand stings!!!

  94. Melissa F March 22, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    Every time I try to get my legs behind my head I start to wish I could see Cirque again!

  95. Dave Knospe March 22, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    My sister has a thing for bugs… seriously she loves them. She’s a 27 year old artist in Boston and is planning to come out to visit Portland soon. I think it’d be fun to take my sister (and her 4 bug tattoos) to a Cirque show inspired by insects.

  96. Alice March 22, 2012 at 3:16 pm #

    I missed my chance to be invited once because of family obligations, I want my chance now…

  97. Jeremy Brill March 22, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

    my daughter would love to see this

  98. Geena W March 22, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

    If you ever watched a butterfly,
    You would think the same;
    To call him rather “flutterby”,
    Is more a fitting name.
    For what he has to do with butter
    I cannot understand.
    But he can surely flutter better
    Than any insect can! ;)

  99. Al March 22, 2012 at 3:19 pm #

    I’ve wanted to go to a Cirque Du Soleil show since nearly forever. They always sell out so fast though!

  100. Heather Busby March 22, 2012 at 3:19 pm #

    I would love to see this show!! Pick me! Pick me!!

  101. Julie H March 22, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    Haven’t seen one of these shows in years-I’d love to go!

  102. emma wallace March 22, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    I love cirque du soleil! I haven’t seen a show since I was a little girl! This seems like a perfect date for my husband and I, and we’re trying to get in as many of those as possible since I’m 7 months pregnant and won’t have as many opportunities once our son is born.

  103. Tay March 22, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    I have always wanted to go to Cirque and never had the funds. Please help me change that :)

  104. Andrea March 22, 2012 at 3:31 pm #

    Oh please oh please! I’d so loooove to see this! I know it’d be so inspiring for me at this time. Much needed!

  105. Kimberly March 22, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    I am moving on April 30th and winning these tickets would be a wonderful way to spend my last weekend here in beautiful Portland!! Puhhh-leeeease!

  106. Maggie Brees March 22, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    I would love to take my boyfriend to his first Cirque du Soleil! I’ve seen them several times and always love them.

  107. Gina cavallio March 22, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    I would love to win these. It would be a great date night for my boyfriend and I. We have a newborn at home and it would be nice get away for a few hours :)

  108. Mark Bauser March 22, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    I can haz tickets, please?

  109. Greg March 22, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

    I will start of by saying (please don’t disqualify me) I don’t know too much about cirque du soleil.I have been back in Portland with my girlfriend for 3 months going on 4 and have had a horrid time getting a job. A few months ago when things were looking more optimistic, she specifically mentioned this event “maybe when you get a job we could go/you could take me to to the cirque du soleil” she said. she’s a total catch and not being able to take her anywhere cool has been super hard. If I win these tickets it would make an awesome girl smile, make a poor boy look alright and probably save the whole relationship (she’s not gonna stay with my broke ass forever). So yeah, that is my plea, if I don’t win could you at least help me find a job in food service? That would also help too ;)

  110. Irina March 22, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    Bugs show sounds great!

  111. griz March 22, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    i want to see what all the buzz is about……and by writing that I pretty much guaranteed i will not be winning these tickets.

  112. Erika Albright March 22, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    would love to win tickets to take one of my kids for a late spring break outing!!

  113. daVe March 22, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

    my son would dig this incredibly…as would i!

  114. bc March 22, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

    OVO yo!

  115. Josh C March 22, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    I went to Cirque years ago and to this day, it has been the best live performance I have ever seen. I would love to go back to see if it could have possibly gotten any more amazing. Please oh please pick me!

  116. Kacy March 22, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    I would soooo love to take my man to see Cirque as he has never been to one of their shows!!! It would be such a fantastic treat and I am in need of a blast of creative inspiration to muse about!!!! XO

  117. Kristi March 22, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    Never been to a Cirque show, always wanted to. Let’s make that dream a reality!

  118. Laura March 22, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    With my latest fascination with entomology this would be FANTASTIC to see!!!

  119. Anna March 22, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    Pretty colors swinging all about?! Please pick me! I wanna see!

  120. Stuart Coates March 22, 2012 at 4:05 pm #

    Every year I regret not going, but it’s if I win these tickets I’ll have finally seen them! Fingers crossed.

  121. Azunga March 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    I’d love to see this show. Pick me?

  122. Anni Becker March 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm #

    Pick me, pick me! I’ve recently fallen in love with performance art and this would be amazing!

    Cirque is one of the most enchanting experiences in this world, truly an honor to attend any of their shows. It would be amazing to attend!

    I would LOVE to take my little niece who’s destined for the circus, to inspire her w/ the colors, whimsy, and captivating acrobatics!

  126. Desiree Gabel March 22, 2012 at 4:07 pm #

    April 5th is my birthday and this would be an amazing show to go to for my birthday!!

  127. Jonathan Grindell March 22, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

    Unless Ringling and most commercial circuses, Cirque du Soleil does not use animals! This is extremely important to me because entertainment should not include suffering and exploitation. This circus is more expensive as a result, which is completely understandable. That said, I would dearly love to attend because I am unemployed…

  128. troyman blaze March 22, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

    Oh man! I’ve always wanted to see this show and my lady would love this!

  129. Larry P March 22, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

  131. Jen March 22, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    I would love to see Cirque de Soleil. Cheers!

  132. Alex March 22, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    This looks so awesome, pick me!

  133. Abe March 22, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    I’ve watched Cirque de Soleil (on TV only :( ) for years. I want to see it live, but it’s always a bit hefty for the wallet. Help my PDX pipeline, you’re my only hope!

  134. Brian March 22, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    I’d be a happy camper if i went to see Ovo for the fantastic price of free. neat.

  135. Cameron Pierce March 22, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    Insects enrich my life every day. The slugs that live in the walls of my apartment are especially stimulating, on an emotional level.

  136. Michelle March 22, 2012 at 4:12 pm #

    I wanna go and I can’t afford tickets! Pick me please!

  137. Todd B March 22, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    Envision a french canadian accent. “Je voudrais gagner des billets gratuits pour Ovo. Je n’ai pas des bébites dans la tête1”

  138. Andrea Roselle March 22, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    I think this would be the PERFECT event to take my niece to!! The one time I was able to afford a show (Cordeo) it was beyond my wildest imagination!! Please choose me?!?

  139. Libby March 22, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    My sister has wanted to go for years, but I’m not a huge fan of clowns. This looks more clown free :)

  140. Alexandra Cross March 22, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    Would absolutely love to go to this show! Me and my partner are stiltwalkers and performers and would enjoy and take so much from the show. Plus i have never been to a Cirque show before!

  141. Oliver Heim March 22, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    My girlfriend and I are HUGE Cirque du Soleil fans. We’ve never missed a show in Portland and have seen all three of the permanent shows in Las Vegas – O, Zumanity and KA. I would love to be able to surprise her with tickets to see OVO.

  142. katemargaret March 22, 2012 at 4:16 pm #

    Husband and I have always wanted to see a Cirque show!

  143. Trevor March 22, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    Acrobatic bugs! My daughter would love it.

  144. Ally D. March 22, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    Please let me win because I am in the middle of thesis writing hell and need something to spark my creativity. Cirque du Soleil will ignite my MIND!!!

  145. Marina March 22, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    Please please please!!! Would LOVE this opportunity!

  146. Moth March 22, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    Soon, I will flutter into that yellow incandescent bulb you installed on your back patio. I know it will be the death of me, but your light is so alluring and lovely that nothing, not even death, can storrichymchhhhhjhhh chfff fft tssss

  147. Nadine March 22, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    I have nothing clever to say that could humorously or otherwise top what has already been said. PLEASE PICK ME.

  148. heather March 22, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    oh, pretty please, for me? i will make my partner so so so happy if i win these. she’s been asking me to buy cirque tickets for years and by winning these i will get many bonus points.

  149. Stephanie B March 22, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    I have always been a bit freaked out by the Cirque.. the contortionists seem almost super human.. Gumby -ish…
    I have been told how amazing the show is and I am READY to witness it! I love insects and so this looks interesting… Chooose me :)

  150. Andrew March 22, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    All I ever wanted to do was run away and join the Cirque. I’ve been looking forward to Ovo coming to Portland for so long. My wife just lost her job, dropping us into financial lockdown with heavy burdens. With what I earn, we’ll be able to keep lights on and eat at home. Boohoo sob story, but there’s no other way for us to go watch our dream before it drifts out of town. Shine your light of kindness down and let two wanna-be acrobats escape for an evening. It’s moments like this that help you get through the rest of it.

  151. Kelsey C March 22, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    Would love to get lost in the eccentric music and environment for an evening, especially to counter balance the monotonous time spent typing away at a computer.

  152. Alan March 22, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    I promised my wife acouple summers we would go see cirque….. then we got pregnant and life got in the way…. i have been afraid to make the promise again for fear of her disappointment again….. that being said…… if i won tickets i wouldnt have to worry bout that

  153. Hayley March 22, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

    I’ve never been!! Please, oh please pick me!!!

  154. rhonda March 22, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

    Love this site! I d love to go to this event

  155. alyxa March 22, 2012 at 4:22 pm #

    April 27th is my birthday and free tickets to OVO would be the best birthday gift ever. I really really want to go. Hoping I get a little birthday luck on this one and win. :-)

  156. mallie March 22, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    Ooooo! Cirque, bugs, Friday night- my kind of situation.

  157. Misty March 22, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    I’ve never been to a Cirque de Soleil show, and would love to go. I am pregnant and barely get out of the house it would be an amazing experience for my husband and I.

  158. Lewis March 22, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    This would be the absolute best way to spend April 5th.

  159. evan g March 22, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    if i win i will give a handshake to a snake

  160. Kaitlin March 22, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    AH! I’m dying to see Cirque du Soleil! I saw some of the bug dancers at the Timbers opener and am SO intrigued!

  161. pdxmaven March 22, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    I’d love to be able to take my daughters!

  162. Ryan March 22, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    Ahh, I’ve always wanted to go to a cirque du soleil show, but can never afford to. I would absolutely love a chance to go!

  163. John March 22, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    What a buggy way to kick off Spring, a veritable trip down the rabbit hole, would be thrilled to win a couple of tickets :)

  164. Ashley March 22, 2012 at 4:28 pm #

    I’m a flight attendant, (a fan of flying!) and I just did a scary thing and began taking Aerial Dance classes. At first it was intimidating since I never so much and did the rope climb in school (I always wrote a “note from my mom” to say I was “too sick for P.E.” on rope days…). What’s crazy is once I realized I was strong enough to climb up and look down, I became addicted to the Aerial class. In the past, I thought Cirque de Soleil sounded cool but would never follow up enough to attend a performance. Now it’s non-negotiable that I see how expansive human flight can be with the strength & artistry of the pro’s, but nothing would be cooler than winning a pair of tickets and being able to show my companion what it is that makes it so fun!

  165. Ann Steigerwald March 22, 2012 at 4:29 pm #

    I am a Canadian citizen but having lived abroad for most of my adult years I’ve never had the chance to see this most famous Canadian ‘export’. I’d love to share this with a family member who needs to appreciate their heritage…:-)

  166. Nikki March 22, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    Would love to see the circus perform. I’ve never gone! I’ve heard fabulous things about this cirque as well. It’d be nice to see a little European flair!

  167. Ashley March 22, 2012 at 4:32 pm #

    I would love to see insects via Cirque du soleil and what a nice treat after finals!

  168. Mindi March 22, 2012 at 4:33 pm #

    Oh my gosh, I want to take my daughter to this so badly!

  169. John Humes March 22, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

    I’d love to see Cirque du soleil

  170. Robert March 22, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    I would love to go!!! I’ve always wanted to go to a Cirque Du Soleil show!

  171. Erika March 22, 2012 at 4:35 pm #

    I’m really down in the dumps :( and this would really pick me up! :)

  172. Chum Chum March 22, 2012 at 4:39 pm #

  173. Araceli March 22, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Never been to their shows, always work and never have time so it would be nice to win some tixs and make a wonderful night out of it.

  174. Sturatt March 22, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    Girlfriend is dying to see Cirque.

  175. Tamara English March 22, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    The performances of Cirque du Soleil are a celebration of the human spirit, the realization of what is possible with the application of passion, creativity and practice. My desire to go to a Cirque du Soleil performance is to be immersed in this created world to remember the wonder and majesty of being human.

  176. Ben March 22, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    Never seen a cirque show I’d love to sometime

  177. Elizabeth Martin March 22, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    Seeing this show would help me get over my fear of ladybugs. Then I would live a normal life: full of hiking, swimming, dog walking and other wonderful outside activities.

  178. John March 22, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    Cirque this time deals with Ladybugs? If I am unable to win will I be bugged.

  179. Adam shepard March 22, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    We would love to go! Just had our first child (7 months old) and have not had a night out. This would a great first night out for a cash strapped couple! PLEASE.

  180. Jaime March 22, 2012 at 4:48 pm #

    I just broke up with my boyfriend and I could use some cheering up and a fun girls’ night out!

  181. Gene March 22, 2012 at 4:48 pm #

    Whaaaaa?! I’d love so much to go to this.

  182. Frank March 22, 2012 at 4:48 pm #

    OVO ! Let’s go ! Just need some tickets to the show.

  183. Sarah March 22, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

    I saw it a couple years ago and it was amazing!

  184. Andrea March 22, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

    What can I say? I want tickets to Cirque anytime, anyplace.

  185. maya lake March 22, 2012 at 4:50 pm #

    My sister recently moved to portland from a tiny, uncultured town of spring creek nevada. Not only would I love to take her to explore portland, but also to se an amazing show like ova would be an unforgettable experince that we will talk about for years to come. Allow us this great opportunity!!

  186. Lisa March 22, 2012 at 4:50 pm #

    Cirque du Soleil is a feast for the senses. And I love bugs. This single mom would love an adult night out!

  187. anhela March 22, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    I haven’t been to Cirque, would love this.

  188. Brian G March 22, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    Bugs = creepy!
    OVO/Cirque = creepy squared!
    MUST SEE! :D

  189. Wynand March 22, 2012 at 4:54 pm #

    love to see this !!!

  190. Emily March 22, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    Gimmee, Gimmee!!!

  191. Kathy March 22, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    We saw our first Cirque show last spring, Dralion, and the kids’ eyes were wide and mouths hanging open the entire time–same for the parents.

  192. Chris March 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm #

    It would be a great way to start my birthday weekend. The last time they were here, my husband bought tickets before we planned a trip to see family out east so we didn’t get to use them.

  193. Stacy March 22, 2012 at 5:04 pm #

    This show looks fantastic and I have always wanted to see a live performance ever since I saw a film of them at the omnimax theater at OMSI.

  194. Steffannie March 22, 2012 at 5:04 pm #

    I want to see them dance, spin, and flutter. I’ve dreamed of the day I might experience Cirque Du Soleil first hand. My daughter and I wlll always remember the day we won our chance to watch Ovo shed it’s shell for us.

  195. maya March 22, 2012 at 5:06 pm #

    When I was a kid I was fortunate enough to get to go to the “Ice Capades” and I LOVED IT. Now I need an adult fix of Cirque show.

  196. Angela Gorrow March 22, 2012 at 5:06 pm #

    I would love to win to tickets for my son. His birthday is april 4th and he loves the circus and bugs. It would be the best present ever for him.

  197. Mary March 22, 2012 at 5:10 pm #

    “OVO” costumes look fantastic. I would LOVE to see them up close and personal!

  198. Dave Taube March 22, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

    I don’t mean to be Cirquitous, but Cirqumstances beyond my control are making me Cirqumvent conventional spelling. Seriously, I’d love to go to OVO.

  199. Rosa March 22, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    Ahhh My birthday is April 6th this would be such an awesome show to see!!!! AHHHH!!!! life size insects?? OHHH YEAAAHhhhhh!

  200. Dnae March 22, 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    I’ve never been to a Cirque Du Soleil before!

  201. megan haman March 22, 2012 at 5:21 pm #

    I would love to see Cirque du Soliel OVO. Their interpretation of stories through art is AMAZING!

  202. Amber March 22, 2012 at 5:23 pm #

    It looks amazing and beautiful! Who wouldn’t want to go!?

  203. Phill March 22, 2012 at 5:23 pm #

    I do local acrobatics and I want to take my future wife to see the best of the best!

  204. jgott March 22, 2012 at 5:28 pm #

    cheap date? :)

  205. Rebecca March 22, 2012 at 5:29 pm #

    This sounds awesome. My hubby and I are desperate for a date out since having our baby. Would love to go!

  206. megan haman March 22, 2012 at 5:31 pm #

    I’m trying this again… Email was wrong before… I would LOVE to see OVO. Cirque du Soliel’s interpretation of story through art is AMAZING!!!

  207. Jackie March 22, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

    I must see Cirque Du Soleil and what better place than in beautiful Portland?! The show looks amazing, I would love to go!

  208. Eric Fuentes March 22, 2012 at 5:32 pm #

    Id love to be able to take my partner to make up for a not-so-memorable valentine! LOL

  209. Shadow Rose March 22, 2012 at 5:33 pm #

    I AM ATTENDING! I love new experiences and I have never seen Cirque Du Soleil. I am very excited to experience this. Please, please, please with a StRaWbErRy on top pick me. <3

  210. Darcy B March 22, 2012 at 5:38 pm #

    Yes please–I would love to see any Cirque du Soleil performance!

  211. Dorena March 22, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

    I would like to go see OVO by Cirque Du Soleil because I never been to a Cirque Du Soleil show but I always wanted to. The tickets have always been to expensive for me and this year is no exception since I’m unemployed.

  212. Amanda March 22, 2012 at 5:51 pm #

    I would LOVE to go to Cirque du Soleil because I’ve watched their movies and I am always so enthralled by the magic of their shows, but I’ve never been able to see them in real life!! The tickets are out of my price range, so this would be a stunning opportunity!!

  213. Barbara March 22, 2012 at 5:59 pm #

    Would love to see them! Can’t afford it. Would help me get over my aversion to bugs?

  214. Halla March 22, 2012 at 6:02 pm #

    I LOVE TO SEE DANCING!!!! SOUNDS FUN!!!

  215. Chris P. March 22, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

    I really would love to Take my 6 year old neice! She goes crazy when the commercial comes on!

  216. Kevin March 22, 2012 at 6:08 pm #

    Free and fun!

  217. Michael Florin March 22, 2012 at 6:10 pm #

    My wife has never seen the Cirque du Suleil show and she has always wanted to but we can’t afford to.

  218. Sheri March 22, 2012 at 6:16 pm #

    I have always wanted to see Cirque D’Soleil, but have never been able to afford to go. My boyfriend and I are both business owners and workaholics so we rarely take the time or have the money to go out. This would make an awesome date night that we both greatly would appreciate! Thanks for reading! :-)

  219. Rachel March 22, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

    My mom is 80 … and has never seen a Cirque du Soleil show. She would be so in awe ….

    If we win the tickets … three generations – would attend. My mother, myself, and … my daughter for which I would buy a ticket.

  220. Leigha March 22, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

    I love bugs! and can’t think of a better way to see Cirque Du Soleil for the first time! Did I mention I am a poor Graduate student who would be ever so grateful for some free tickets. Fingers and toes crossed!

  221. Laura March 22, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

    All I hear about Cirque de Soleil is “stunning, beautiful, amazing, WOW!” Would love to check out this live performance that doesn’t seem it can be beat. Thanks for the opportunity PDXP!

  222. sam March 22, 2012 at 6:21 pm #

    This is the perfect show to celebrate Spring!

  223. Miranda T. March 22, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    All these comments and no one’s made a flea circus joke? There, I’ve gotten it out of the way for everyone.

    I want to win these because I have a thing for bugs, like, in that Microcosm and Green Porno each made me pee my pants a little.

    Yeah, really.

  224. Nikkol March 22, 2012 at 6:37 pm #

    I would love tone able to take my boyfriend to this!

  225. Brian C. March 22, 2012 at 6:43 pm #

    I only have 30 or 40 years left to live! Help me make my last years special.
    Thanks very much.

  226. Eagle Girl March 22, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    My granddaughter is visiting from thousands of miles away and I would love the opportunity to take her to Cirque Du Soleil. :)

  227. Ian March 22, 2012 at 6:49 pm #

    I’ve been to Cirque twice with my wife and loved it both times! We’d like to make it a third.

  228. Yuri March 22, 2012 at 6:52 pm #

    This looks so cool!!

  229. Rachael March 22, 2012 at 6:57 pm #

    My daughter would love this show, she is fascinated by insects and critters. And as our family just grew by one, I’d love to share the experience with her.

  230. Chris M March 22, 2012 at 6:58 pm #

    Yes please

  231. Cory Shird March 22, 2012 at 6:59 pm #

  232. Sean Duhamel March 22, 2012 at 6:59 pm #

    Oh yes please! I love PDX PIPELINE.

  233. Skye Blue March 22, 2012 at 7:00 pm #

    This looks so amazing!

  234. Star March 22, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

    I would love to see this show. Cirque du Soleil is an inspiration and a reminder that there is beauty and brilliance in the world. Something millions of us need to remember as we struggle to survive grim economic circumstances.

  235. Geoffrey March 22, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    This show needs me to be there, don’t let them down.

  236. Terri March 22, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

    Seeing Cirque du Soleil is like getting a glimpse of human perfection mixed with grace and joy – I would like to share that experience with someone I love.

  237. Sarah Smith March 22, 2012 at 7:13 pm #

    Bugs and a night out! Please pick me!

  238. Kelly March 22, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    This would be the best early birthday present for my boyfriend and me!

  239. michelle March 22, 2012 at 7:17 pm #

    Ladybugs, acrobatics, and eggs!! 3 favorites for my 7 yr old and I! Pick me!)))

  240. Jax March 22, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

    I would love to take my soon-to-be 12 yr old daughter to see Cirque. This single mom can not afford the tix, so if I were to win, I would be forever thankful to youse…

  241. Chioma March 22, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    I have been waiting all my life for an opportunity to be immersed into the teeming and energetic world of insects.

    I’ve only seen Cirque du Soleil on TV as a kid and was mesmerized by the creativity and energy of the show. I would love to experience the movement of this production LIVE.

    Winning these tickets would be an amazing highlight of my year!!!

  242. sara March 22, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

    I’ve never been to the cirque, too expensive!

  243. Brad March 22, 2012 at 7:35 pm #

    I will one day receive tickets, and they will be amazing, and they will be for cirques ole :)

  244. Cory Lavin March 22, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

    I would take my Nieces and Nephew, they’ve never seen anything like it. neither have I for that matter!

  245. Rain March 22, 2012 at 7:44 pm #

    This would let me check off a box on my list of things to do in my lifetime – see Cirque Du Soleil!

  246. Lindsay Stark March 22, 2012 at 7:44 pm #

    Because cirque de soleil is amazing and so are free tickets!

  247. Lisa March 22, 2012 at 7:47 pm #

    Because obviously Cirque du Soleil + Insects = MUST SEE!!

  248. Elsbeth March 22, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    I have never seen a Cirque du Soiel show and as an avid gardener I have a deep appreciation for the wonders of insects and how beautiful they are. Getting to see how Cirque du Soiel presents insects would be totally amazing!!

  249. Kaye Rogers March 22, 2012 at 8:14 pm #

    I would LOVE to see Cirque Du Soleil! I am a single mom who can’t afford to go unless I win so please please please pick me! I would so do a happy dance if I won!

  250. Pauline March 22, 2012 at 8:19 pm #

    You guys are the best for giving these away and not keeping them for yourselves. Wow. I bet the night will be pure magic.

  251. Christopher M March 22, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    The idea of going is making the tip of my tongue tingle. It would do two of us rather well if we had the chance to go to the event.

  252. Sherri March 22, 2012 at 8:33 pm #

    It has been years since I’ve been to one of their shows. I am the caretaker of my elderly mother, and have been now for a year without a break. It would be wonderful to get away for an evening and “escape.”

    I love any event that inspires you to wear the maximum color combo possible.

  255. Tina March 22, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

    Acrobatic insects! Would love to see.

  256. Lynette March 22, 2012 at 8:56 pm #

    Please, oh please pick me! I’d love to take my sister to a Cirque Du Soleil and take in all the activity of those amazing athletes along with the outfits! Please, oh please pick me!

  257. Amy Chastain March 22, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    Duh! This looks really, really cool!

  258. Jacqueline March 22, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

    I wanna see the fat lady…fly.

  259. Chas March 22, 2012 at 9:08 pm #

    My family and I have wanted to go to a cirque du soleil for years but the tickets are always way too expensive.
    My wife and I wanted to go to one years back but couldn’t afford it. Now our daughter is really into it and watches it on tv whenever she can.
    It would be the best surprise to give to my wife and daughter, hope we get them!

  260. Tippi March 22, 2012 at 9:15 pm #

    I used to lov playing with bugs as a kid! Cirque du soleil is awesome!

  261. Jaya March 22, 2012 at 9:20 pm #

    I really wanna go to OVO! I’ve never been to any of the Cirque Du Soleils!

  262. steve parker March 22, 2012 at 9:40 pm #

    It might help win my lady back. She would be thrilled and so would I…

  263. Debbie March 22, 2012 at 9:41 pm #

    I’m totally buggy for OVO!

  264. jess March 22, 2012 at 9:46 pm #

    Who could say no to trying for free tickets to a Cirque show??? Yay!!!!!

  265. Keith March 22, 2012 at 9:50 pm #

    Last year my wife treated me to a wonderful Cirque du Soleil show on the European trip that she worked hard to earn for us. I would like to recall that trip with this show and treat her to a special anniversary night.

  266. Kyle March 22, 2012 at 10:01 pm #

    I like French people. I like insects. I live in Portland.

  267. Ruby Campbell March 22, 2012 at 10:17 pm #

    I told my 6 year old g’daughter that I’d give this a try for her April birthday! We love Cirque.

  268. Heather Love March 22, 2012 at 10:28 pm #

    Our sweet Corina turns 7 on April 10th and loves Cirque du Soleil with all of her heart! She has been going to shows since she was 5 weeks old and we have made this a special birthday tradition for her, every year they come to Portland. This year we just can’t afford tix and would so love to be able to do this for her!

  269. April March 22, 2012 at 10:37 pm #

    The Cirque show looks intriguing.

  270. Sean Stutzman March 22, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

    I must go to this show to prove my theory that every sentence said in French sounds like a question.

  271. Zach March 22, 2012 at 10:51 pm #

    I’m a season cirquer (dralion, allegria, myster x2, saltimbanco) but dont think I’ll be able to go this year otherwise. Thanks!

  272. lori stein March 22, 2012 at 10:53 pm #

    13 years ago I had the pleasure of attending a cirque show in Vegas. My son is 9 and loves watching it on TV. I want to take him to one show. Currently I am between jobs (hoping that is solved very soon) and even with my little home business money is super tight. We haven’t been able to go to any shows or movies for almost two years and I really want to treat him to something special. He has worked hard in school earning a TAG delineation and it is time to reward his hard work.

  273. Rieva March 22, 2012 at 10:59 pm #

    I’d love to take my very giggly, very sparkly, very pink 6-year-old to see these Cirque characters perform amazing acrobatics Ovo and Ovo and Ovo again.

  274. Lindsey March 22, 2012 at 11:04 pm #

    My boyfriend and I have been talking about how much we want to go to this, but can’t afford tickets at full price. I would love to win a pair for us to go see it!!

  275. Michelle March 22, 2012 at 11:10 pm #

    I’m obsessed with Cirque but don’t have money this time around!

  276. Fernando Ubeda March 22, 2012 at 11:14 pm #

    I have an eight year old daughter that is fascinated with life. She loves all beings and protects even the tiniest little insects! I would love to share with her this fantastic perspective & amazing experience. Thanks! :D

  277. Paula March 22, 2012 at 11:27 pm #

    I would love to see this show! Pick me! Pick me, please!

  278. Carla D March 22, 2012 at 11:30 pm #

    I’m a single mom looking for a fun evening out! Thanks for considering me!

  279. Joan March 22, 2012 at 11:32 pm #

    I’ve never been, and it will really “bug” me if I don’t get to go.

  280. Stephanie March 22, 2012 at 11:38 pm #

    I want to go to Cirque du Soliel’ Ovo and take my 18 yr old daughter because…apparently, I am completely archaic and lost all touch on the reality of what its like to be an 18 yr old “woman”…she REALLY wants to go to this show so bad but since losing my job of 19 yrs in January, the ticket prices are a bit much for my unemployed pocket book….it would give us a night out together, which hasn’t happened in forever and I’d like one more opportunity to create another memory with her before she takes off to college.

  281. Andrew March 22, 2012 at 11:50 pm #

    I’ve never been to one of these shows before, certainly can’t afford those tickets. Good thing my odds at winning free tix are 1/280 at this point! Come one lucky post, we can do it!

  282. ACampbell March 23, 2012 at 12:04 am #

    Love any opportunity to support individuals who are brave enough to put themselves out there, perform extremely intricate dance, acrobatics and abstract elements, and all the while making it look effortless. I would love to go or give the opportunity to the gymnasts I coach, they are working extremely hard, for Regional and National competitions coming up . This would be so fun for them.

  283. William Nahorn March 23, 2012 at 12:09 am #

    I really enjoyed Cirque du Soliel a couple years ago, and would love to see it again. While I would like to go, If I happened to receive two tickets, I would have my wife take her mother for an evening out together.

  284. Danette Stephenson March 23, 2012 at 12:22 am #

    I have never been to one of these productions and would very much like to take a close friend who has also not seen one and they Probly never will do to life situations.

  285. Annie March 23, 2012 at 12:37 am #

    Sounds beautiful!

  286. KathyRankin March 23, 2012 at 12:47 am #

    Id like to go to bring some fresh thoughts, new ideas, fun moments and colorful fleeting joy of theater into my otherwise, dull grey and depressing life lately, husband on workers comp, I have been laid off and on and off again, this would certinly bring me hope

  287. Erik Pierson March 23, 2012 at 1:00 am #

    Cirque du Soleil is the best circus show I’ve ever seen. I can only imagine how well their production about fertility will be done.

  288. Drew March 23, 2012 at 1:00 am #

    my girl and her mom go every year without me! i’ve never seen any Cirque du Soleil! this would be a good chance to get back at them. by me going or taking someone else and them missing out!!

  289. Chad Houchin March 23, 2012 at 1:04 am #

    Looks like an awesome show. My 2 kids would love to see this! Good times!

  290. Shannon Moore March 23, 2012 at 1:20 am #

    I would love to be able to take my daughter. She has endured my unemployment for far too long and we’ve not been able to do anything fun. I would love to give her a night out!!!

  291. Shannon March 23, 2012 at 1:23 am #

    Pick me! I’ve never been to a show and would love to!!! Can’t afford it on my own!

  292. Tracy March 23, 2012 at 1:23 am #

    It is my boyfriend’s 30th birthday soon and he’s always dreamed of going to cirque du soleil. I can’t afford the tickets, but it would be so priceless to see the look on his face if I won these!!

  293. S. Daniel Currier March 23, 2012 at 2:12 am #

    My wife has never been to any circus, but she’s always dreamed of going to one. She creates many things that emulate her idea of what a circus might be like, but she doesn’t even know if what she imagines is what it’s actually like. If I could give her one big day, where all of her circus dreams came true, it would be the ultimate gift to me. I live to make her happy.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  294. Liz March 23, 2012 at 5:26 am #

    Sounds amazing!

  295. Ola March 23, 2012 at 5:37 am #

    It would make an awesome wedding anniversary gift!

  296. Steve C. March 23, 2012 at 5:52 am #

    I was truly disappointed that the guy flying with bugs’ wings (OK, it was birds’; I get it. Stay with me here) turned out to be a hoax. I can only emerge from this cocoon of sadness by seeing Cirque’s bugs fly. Help me!

  297. Liza March 23, 2012 at 6:33 am #

    this would be just absolutely amazing! they are so awesome i’m at a lose for words

  298. Jen March 23, 2012 at 6:46 am #

    I would love to take my husband to this show for his birthday!

  299. Karri March 23, 2012 at 6:55 am #

    Because some days, I feel like I should be a Cirque clown.

  300. Todd March 23, 2012 at 6:57 am #

    We saw ‘O’ in Vegas and the most amazing thing was the carousel horses moved through water! I can only imagine how incredibly awesome their traveling show would be, to see!

    Thanks!

  301. Kevin March 23, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    I’ve always wanted to see what goes on in that big yellow tent.

  302. Kim March 23, 2012 at 7:04 am #

    Winning tickets to Cirque would make me so very happy!!!!

  303. patty freshman March 23, 2012 at 7:11 am #

    I would love free tickets to this show!! my daughter is 16 and is a dancer… she would so love this but due to my unemployment and the economy I’m unable to afford these tickets … please consider us for free tickets!! thank you!

  304. Beckie March 23, 2012 at 7:14 am #

    It is my 60th birthday. These tickets would be cherished.

  305. Laura March 23, 2012 at 7:37 am #

    Would loooove to share these tickets with my Vancouver School of Arts and Academics attending nephew who tunrs 16 on April 5th.

    He and I would BOTH be thrilled. OVO By Cirque Du Soleil @ Portland Expo Center = an amazing experience.

  306. Tricia March 23, 2012 at 7:55 am #

    I LOVE Cirque!!! I’ve recently graduated and started my own business, so expenses for fun stuff like this are just not in the budget! I so wish I could go! How fun it would be to surprise my nephew and take him for his birthday :) Good luck everyone on here!

  307. Marty March 23, 2012 at 8:29 am #

    I’d love to take my son to this! This is the perfect Cirque show for someone his age to see! Pretty please!!!!

  308. Karen March 23, 2012 at 8:39 am #

    Please…Pick me…. Pick me…. :}

  309. Jackie March 23, 2012 at 8:56 am #

    This would be a great birthday gift for me and my husband; both April birthdays.
    Please, please…..

  310. Natlaie March 23, 2012 at 9:07 am #

    The torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue, thoughts follow my vision and dance in the sun, all my vasoconstrictors become slowly undone, can’t this wait till I’m old CAN’T I LIVE WHILE I’M YOUNG! WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  311. bianca j March 23, 2012 at 9:15 am #

    I would looooove to win! I never win on here !! =( pity party for one haha

  312. Anna March 23, 2012 at 9:17 am #

    My mom has recently been having a series of horrible luck, culminating in losing her job. I would love to win these for her and my father. Thank you PDX Pipeline!

  313. Caitlin March 23, 2012 at 9:26 am #

    I have never been able to attend a Cirque show because I’ve never had the money to do so. Having been a dancer my whole life I would LOVE and sincerely appreicate the opportunity to see the wonderment of a Cirque show. Pick me please!!! :)

  314. Dana March 23, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    My husband and I haven’t been on a date since he was laid off as a teacher in 2010. And we have never been on a date like this because we could never afford it. We would love to see a Cirque show!

  315. Tomas March 23, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    I have DREAMED about going to this FOREVER! I’ve got a bug/insect phobia, so this would actually be like a healing experience! Yeah, help me over come my bug fears and send me and my special girl to see this!

  316. Valory J. Lawrence March 23, 2012 at 9:42 am #

    I saved money for tickets to OVO for my mother, my sister, and myself — dances of excitement were done in anticipation that THIS was going to be the year!!! Then my car, in an unbecoming jealous rage, demanded I, instead, spend my money on a new ignition switch, starter motor and – just for funsies — a new gasket seal. And while I am able to get to work, there’s been little in the way dancing in the Lawrence household.

  317. Jessica March 23, 2012 at 9:46 am #

    Have never been, and would love to go!

  318. Bridget March 23, 2012 at 9:56 am #

    This show would be like a dream I had when I was a child. I would love to return to that vision

  319. Deena March 23, 2012 at 10:00 am #

    My son’s 10th bday is fast approaching, and I’d love to take him. Thanks PDX Pipeline!

  320. wooshy March 23, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    sounds like the perfect date

  321. Danie March 23, 2012 at 10:12 am #

    I’ve never been to Cirque du Soleil and would love to see the amazing show. On ‘shrooms, if my boyfriend gets his way…

  322. Alanna March 23, 2012 at 10:15 am #

    I never win anything. But I would really love to go to this. :) :)

    ~o^ …mmmmeow!

  323. Julent March 23, 2012 at 10:33 am #

    I love Cirque du Soleil and bugs! This would make an excellent birthday gift for me.

  324. Angel Campbell March 23, 2012 at 10:33 am #

    If you give them to me, I promise I’ll truly truly appreciate the gift… With my 31st birthday next week, this would be an amazing present since we weren’t going to be able to afford tickets this time around and I really wanted to see it.

  325. Sarah March 23, 2012 at 10:34 am #

    My birthday is on April 3rd and I would love to win tickets to see OVO! If you choose me, it would be the best 35th birthday present (and probably the only present) I will recieve. Thank you for reading my post and allowing me to enter to win OVO tickets!

  326. Jaimee March 23, 2012 at 10:53 am #

    I would love to take my son to this!!

  327. Alain March 23, 2012 at 10:56 am #

    Puleeeeeez pleeeeez pleeeeeeez with sugar monkeys and elepants on top

  328. Valerie March 23, 2012 at 10:57 am #

    Saw the OVO special on TV last night – AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

  329. Rebecca March 23, 2012 at 10:58 am #

    There’s no way I’ll get to see Cirque du Soleil on my own for a loooooong time. These tickets would be an amazing thing to win! Holy crap, I think it’d make this year for me.

  330. Michael Grimes March 23, 2012 at 11:08 am #

    When my partners and I opened Someday Lounge, our first shows were circus oriented performances with aerialists, costumed, side show horrors like suspension artists and theatrical shows with avante garde music and dance intertwined. The performances Cirque Du Soleil puts on are extremely inspiring and that big top world with rigging beyond imagination drives me to evolve my beliefs in my small room in Old Town Portland and what is possible in it.

  331. Dom March 23, 2012 at 11:10 am #

    I would love to take my BFF to this show for her 30th Bday! She is a Cirque Du Soleil freak!!! :)

  332. Dawn March 23, 2012 at 11:12 am #

    OVO… yes I want to go. Pick me pick me!

  333. Lu March 23, 2012 at 11:13 am #

    Thank you so much for giving this chance to win OVO tickets. It would be awesome to be able to go to see this show.

  334. Stacey Watanabe March 23, 2012 at 11:24 am #

    I saw a couple Cirque shows in Las Vegas years ago when I was there for a conference. They are so visually amazing. My husband has never seen a Cirque show. Winning tickets would be such a thrill so I could introduce him to this amazing spectacle. I hope I win. Thanks for the contest!

  335. carla drain March 23, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    Sexy lady bug? That’s all you had to say ;) Oh, oh, oh, pick me!

  336. carla drain March 23, 2012 at 11:28 am #

    Sexy lady bug? That’s all I need to know ;) Oh, oh, oh, pick me!

  337. carla drain March 23, 2012 at 11:29 am #

    Sexy lady bug? That’s all I need to know ;) Oh, oh, oh, pick me please!

  338. Arad March 23, 2012 at 11:34 am #

    I want tickets to Cirque!

  339. seth francis March 23, 2012 at 11:35 am #

    The magic of the circus has always been my greatest fantasy escape, representing the laughter and joy of a true adventure into imagination. This world is so hard and cold, so full of stress and hate that often we forget the simple joy that children have in just playing and dreaming. Cirque du Soleil embodies that childish joy and will allow me to just forget the world and focus all my energy on the wonderful experience of art and dance and acrobatics that transports you to another world. Please give me a chance to feel like there is some hope for me, some luck on my side, let me win these tickets to something that is truly my favorite thing in the world, so that I might again feel that overwhelming joy and excitement of being a child.
    Thank you

  340. Tim March 23, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

    This presentation by Cirque Du Soleil looks great on their ads. Would like to have the ticket!!

  341. Meghan March 23, 2012 at 12:48 pm #

    I want to win the tickets because I have absolutely no money. Basically the value of these tickets represents 25% of what I left in my bank account!

  342. mike carey March 23, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

    Flipping, twisting, twirling, flying….I feel like Hunter S. Thompson. Whaddjya slip in my drink? A pair of tix to the show!?! Well whaddaya know.

  343. Eva March 23, 2012 at 1:46 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets. I’ve never seen a cirque show, but I hear amazing things about them!

  344. Ryan March 23, 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    This would be a great gift for my girlfriends birthday! We missed a show in Vegas, I have to make it up to her!

  345. Buster March 23, 2012 at 2:09 pm #

    Cirque is so over the top amazing but I am so so poor. I was able to go a long time ago and still have images etched in my brain. Free tickets would be awesome!

  346. Sara March 23, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    Crossing my fingers for a win!

  347. Veer March 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm #

    I am a big fan of Cirque Du Soleil and always see there shows whenever they come to Portland. Although it’s an expensive affair but still worth it. It would be a JACKPOT for me if I get a chance to see the show again for FREE.

  348. Rachel March 23, 2012 at 3:18 pm #

    Bugs in circus costumes!!! That’s for me. Would love to see this show!

  349. ekaterina guild March 23, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    Always wanted to go see the show!!

  350. Claire March 23, 2012 at 3:56 pm #

    My friends have described it so well it is on my bucket list

  351. Chris R March 23, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    Cirque is the bomb!

  352. Dorena March 23, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    I been wanting to go see a Cirque du Soleil show for ever because I heard nothing but good things about the different shows and the previews on tv look good. It’s amazing what the performers can do.

  353. Pattie March 23, 2012 at 4:01 pm #

    I love Cirque du Soleil and could use a night out!

  354. Michael V. March 23, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    Okl. Sooner football is the greatest ever! Can’t wait for cirque du soliel to pay tribute with a sooner themed performance.

  355. jules March 23, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

    what a great venue to see OVO, Portland Expo Center!

  356. Azephead March 23, 2012 at 6:14 pm #

    I would love to see a Cirque show but I’m broke from buying Van Halen Tix – I like the sound of free!

  357. Glenn Blanchard March 23, 2012 at 6:32 pm #

    I’d love to win these tickets because winning tickets is way better than buying tickets.

  358. Heather Jones March 23, 2012 at 8:19 pm #

    OOOO pick me! I love Cirque Du Soleil shows.

  359. Ginger March 23, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    Poor social worker
    would love to win tickets, but
    Give to unemployed.

  360. Amiee March 23, 2012 at 8:36 pm #

    This show sounds AMAZING!!…and inspired by bugs!! I have never seen a CIrque Du Soleil show. I would love to take my boyfriend. I heart bugs

  361. Christina March 23, 2012 at 9:16 pm #

    This would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  362. Vanessa Beyers March 23, 2012 at 9:39 pm #

    I would love to go because Cirque du Soleil is one of the most amazing shows I’ve ever seen, but my girlfriend has never seen them so I’d love to win tickets and be able to take her out on a date night.

  363. Nicole Van Cleave March 23, 2012 at 11:21 pm #

    Wow tons of comments on here ! I have never been to Cirque Du Soleil and I want to go so bad ! Im going to throw my comment in to win :)

  364. Linda March 24, 2012 at 4:45 am #

    Last time I saw a Cirque Du Soleil show I was speechless. Can’t wait to see OVO!

  365. Joanna Sapp March 24, 2012 at 7:37 am #

    I can’t come up with any clever reason why I want to go, nor do I have a sob story. The reason I want to go is the obvious; this is one AMAZING show! and I’ve wanted to go for years; ever since watching them on TV. Please please please pick me!

  366. erin March 24, 2012 at 8:11 am #

    OVO, Ohhhhh Voooooo. Sounds like an orgasm. I might have one if you send me to this show.

  367. April March 24, 2012 at 9:46 am #

    I need to think of something terribly witty to say so that you will pick me to go to this show. I guess I’m not that witty, please, pick me!

  368. julie March 24, 2012 at 9:48 am #

    My husband and I have just been working, working, working, and are in need of a great fun date night. This would be perfect.

  369. Lisa March 24, 2012 at 10:47 am #

    I have always wanted to see a cirque du soleil show – everytime one comes around we never have extra cash laying around. This one looks awesome and I would love to go witg my hub of sand :)

  370. Shawn March 24, 2012 at 11:12 am #

    I <3 me some Bug-trapezing!

  371. Steady1 March 24, 2012 at 11:55 am #

    wow a lot of folks want to see this show; i’ll feel equal parts guilty and happy if chosen for tix!

  372. Michelle March 24, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I would love to see cirque de soleil! I just don’t have the money.

  373. Melissa March 24, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

    I’d love to take my mom there for her birthday. She has never seen it & we cant afford to hit Vegas :)

  374. Levi March 24, 2012 at 3:05 pm #

    Been interested since I was a kid. Doesnt hurt to try.

  375. Dominick March 24, 2012 at 4:12 pm #

    I have been to every Cirque du Soleil show that has been to Portland, but due to the crappy economy I have been unemployed for quite sometime and cannot afford to go this time. My girlfriend is a costume designer for local dance and theater projects in Portland and has won a Drammy and I would love for her to see the amazing costumes worn by the participants and witness such an amazing show.
    Thanks for reading.

    Have never been but have always wanted to. Need to do some fun and exciting things that are low cost or free. My uber large family of 9 are kept up and bored out of our minds about to go crazy!:)

  377. Chelsea March 24, 2012 at 4:36 pm #

    I would love to take my family. Hard working Mom and Dad and siblings. 2 struggling for college, 1 in high school, 1 in middle school, 3 in elementary school, financial woes, medical issues, 2nd jobs,etc. Enough said… catch my drift. Need a fun break.

  378. Timelle Rosen March 24, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    Would love to take my family to this as we’ve all never had the chance to see it….it would be a great birthday present.

  379. carey March 24, 2012 at 5:06 pm #

    Oui, baguette! Incredible talent, French Canadiens, Bugs, oh my! Allow me this honour, s’il vous plait?

    Le Cirque Du Soleil, every glimpse of them is a reminder of the beautiful interior we all posses, the whimsy and the wonder accompanied with the dark terrors relieved by the ridiculous jester. I would love to win some time with my French Canadian inspirators because I’m making steps in my life right now that truly require invoking the level of creative bambosity that is all Cirque Du Soleil. The pure excellence of their creation is a reminder to aim to make all creations better than my best imagination and the artistry of the performances a reminder that all soles have a place for their creativity in this world.

    Cirque de Soleil with ladybugs, what could be better for springtime in Oregon?

  383. glenda March 24, 2012 at 8:13 pm #

    i step over ladybugs and put earthworms and snails back into the grass. i live in the valley. i need some sunshine.

  385. Kendall March 24, 2012 at 8:36 pm #

    I am just recently discovering my love for theater and such! I would love to go and bring my lovely friend with me!

  386. Katie Q March 24, 2012 at 9:52 pm #

    It is wonderful the way that Cirque du Soleil has redefined what a circus can be. There is so much joy of movement conveyed in these works, and it is truly astounding to see what these very talented artists are able to do with their bodies. I would love to vicariously experience sensations of leaping and winding and spinning and flying and to transcend my aging, arthritic body for just a couple of hours….

  387. Steven March 24, 2012 at 11:11 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to see one of their shows. Me please!

  388. Kim March 25, 2012 at 12:36 am #

    Our 7yr old twin goddaughter’s grandfather has been in the hospital fighting cancer and we’d like to provide them with something to brighten them up a little. We’d like to remind them of the joys of being a kid. Thank you.

  389. Chioma March 25, 2012 at 7:57 am #

    Oh my! I am getting so excited for tomorrow’s drawing. I had a dream I won tickets to see Ovo but then I woke up & had to remind myself today is Sunday and the drawing is tomorrow!

  390. rebecca cook March 25, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    It’s such a unique variation of their performance, who would not want to.

  391. Scott March 25, 2012 at 8:53 am #

    I’ve got a good feeling about this one. I think my odds are pretty good.

  392. Ken johnson March 25, 2012 at 9:15 am #

    I wanna see the bugs

  393. Amanda March 25, 2012 at 9:30 am #

    I would like to be chosen because my boyfriend recently got laid off and he has always wanted to go see this show. It would mean the world to him. Unfortunately, I can’t afford to take him to it or I would! :) Please pick me!!

  394. Ninfa Neuser March 25, 2012 at 12:26 pm #

    Have always wanted to attend a Cirque show, but always a little bit above my entertainment budget….

  395. Cirque McGirque March 25, 2012 at 12:45 pm #

    Ohhhh yes,

    I am rich in love for the circus, but poor as a mouse with money. I see OVO in my future!

  396. Amy Spears March 25, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    My husband washed dishes for them for months and still couldn’t manage to get free or discounted tickets. I would love to surprise his with this for his birthday!

  397. shawn March 25, 2012 at 2:32 pm #

    I would really like to take my daughter for her 16th birthday. She has really wanted to go for a long time and has watched all the cirque du soleil videos she can. I actually waited too long to buy tickets and there isn’t any really great seats left!

  398. Danielle Thireault March 25, 2012 at 3:37 pm #

    This is an amazing opportunity! I am a design student and would love to go and see the extraordinary sets and costumes along with the elaborate performances!

  399. Lea Peace March 25, 2012 at 7:45 pm #

    These folks bring magic into reality and inspire my art.

  400. Cassie Miles March 25, 2012 at 8:26 pm #

    I am so excited for this show, words can’t even describe! I would love it if I got to go!

  401. Lisa P. March 25, 2012 at 8:53 pm #

    Cirque Du Soleil is the most imaginative and creative group of talented people in the world. I have seen one show years ago and want to share the visual “eye candy” with my young daughter who’s deaf to give her inspiration that anything is possible if you have a dream!

  402. Trisha March 25, 2012 at 9:27 pm #

    Bugs, the circus and free tixs – what’s not to love? Plus my kids would have a blast.

  403. JimeCab March 25, 2012 at 10:02 pm #

    Thanks for having all this great info available to all!!!

  404. Brad March 26, 2012 at 5:54 am #

    Cirque can be a near religious experience when shared with the right soul-that is my wife. Give me the chance to impress her.

  405. Clare March 26, 2012 at 8:03 am #

    I’ve seen them once – INCREDIBLE and just have to introduce my playwright/musician husband to them. He is all about brilliant entertainment – and Cirque du Soleil is IT!
    Oh let it be me – just this once!

  406. steveO March 26, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    My wife and I are really anticipating this show this year, and really have not been to a show together. We would love to attend this beautiful show together…especially since the only time we had a chance to go my wife had gotten sick. So we’re healthy this year! Whoo hoo! Bring on the tickets please!!

  407. Aimee M March 26, 2012 at 10:09 am #

    Life is about the moments that take our breath away; This performance will surely be one of those memories I would hold forever close to my heart

  408. Suzie Fujioka March 26, 2012 at 11:00 am #

    I have never been either. would be great!

  409. Jessica Sweeney March 26, 2012 at 11:08 am #

    I love Cirque du Soleil! Winning tickets would be a great way to kick off spring.

  410. Andrea March 26, 2012 at 12:15 pm #

    I would love to go! I went to a show many years ago and was absolutely stunned by how amazing it was. Would love to go again!!

  411. -j March 26, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

    Always wanted to take my wife here :-)

  412. Melissa March 26, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

    I am inspired by insects too!! Thanks for the chance for free tixx!

  413. Mel Jasper March 26, 2012 at 4:17 pm #

    I’ve never seen a Cirque Du Soleil show and have always been intrigued. Also, my birthday is in April and I would love to treat myself to a great night out!!!

  414. Ryan Cook March 26, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    I have only ever heard about Cirque Du Soleil and would LOVE so much to attend to this! PLUS, I have been looking for something fun and exciting for my boyfriend and I to do for a great date night!

  415. Chelsea March 26, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to go!

  416. Sean March 26, 2012 at 5:14 pm #

    Cirque du Soleil is one of my favorite events to attend of all time. My girlfriend has never seen one and I’d love to take her before she moves away for residency.

  417. Jennifer lively March 26, 2012 at 7:53 pm #

    Love cirque du soleil! I’ve gone 5 times now and always have a really awesome time!

  418. Sarah Amick March 26, 2012 at 8:20 pm #

    I love love love Cirque Du Soleil! I went to Kooza last year and it was my first performance I’ve been to. My mom, who is my best friend, is about to move away to California and she has always wanted to go to Cirque. I would love to have the oportunity to take her with me.

  419. Christina Peterson March 27, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    Would love to win these tickets!

  420. Baltazar March 27, 2012 at 7:26 pm #

    I would love to have the oportunity to take my wife she will love it! Thank you!!

  421. Ryan March 28, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

    I forgot valentine’s day and thus my girlfriend won’t let me live it down. This would help redeem myself. Any performance would work!

  422. Quincey March 28, 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    I am a Sophomore in college and have always wanted to see Cirque Du Soleil. I can’t really afford anything more than toilet paper, and I would love to take a break from school and be able to treat my mom to this amazing show! Thank you so much for the giveaway PDXPipeline!

  423. Leonard March 28, 2012 at 8:10 pm #

    Haven’t seen Cirque in years!

  424. McKillakove March 29, 2012 at 3:15 pm #

    Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go!!!

  425. Brian March 29, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    Last chance before our daughter leaves us for college

  426. ginger hall March 29, 2012 at 6:25 pm #

    I would love to see OVO with my son. He is 8 years old. Finding entertainment which he can enjoy yet not be overelmed can be difficult as he has Autism. The colors, movement of the performers and the story are probably amazing. Having sensory issues can be overwhelming for him. I thought this show may be a good fit. Ginger…

  427. Sarah Knapp March 29, 2012 at 9:55 pm #

    My parents have been talking about this show, but can’t afford to go. I would love to send them to see it!

  428. Ashley March 29, 2012 at 10:16 pm #

    I would love to see this show while it’s in Portland! I would take my housemate and her 5-year old daughter!
    thanks..

  429. Pam March 31, 2012 at 12:04 am #

    I just moved to Portland with my 10 year old sister from Massachusetts. We don’t know anyone on the West Coast but so far are loving Portland. Unfortunately times are hard and I can’t afford tickets to a show I’ve always dreamed of going to. This would be a nice break for the both of us, please :)

  430. Ed March 31, 2012 at 5:24 pm #

    I gotta go regardless, saw a show in Vegas and it was AMAZING!

  431. Patty April 1, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    I’ve never gone to Cirque de Soleil, but always have hopes of winning tickets when I see that giant tent pop up. I’ve heard the show an amazing experience that you have to see sometime in your life. Please take pity on an unemployed college grad!

  432. Jessica April 1, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

    I know the show is going to be Incredible It would be even better with free tickets.

  433. Hannah April 1, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    I’m turning 28 and need to know there is still joy in this rainy rainy city!

  434. Stephanie April 2, 2012 at 12:17 am #

    Like many others, I have always wanted to see a show! I have watched on TV but to see one live would be amazing! I have never heard of a bad Cirque show and this one looks very quirky and fun!

  435. Liza April 3, 2012 at 1:31 am #

    this would be awesome! Tickets please!

  436. Lisa April 3, 2012 at 9:34 am #

    Reason why I would like to win the tickets….
    Daughters birthday on April 10th and she would love to see this show! Tickets not in our budget. ;( nor many others im sure.
    Wish me luck!

  437. Lara April 3, 2012 at 9:35 am #

    Sounds better than a tilt a whirl

  438. devan April 3, 2012 at 10:57 am #

    i haven’t gotten laid in over a year. if i could get these tickets, my date just might put out

  439. Lauren April 3, 2012 at 9:27 pm #

    My roommate has never seen cirque de sole. We’ve been trying to go but tickets are a little out of our budget. I’d love to surprise her with free tickets!

  440. Cindy April 3, 2012 at 10:58 pm #

    Would love to be able to take my husband for our 27th wedding anniversary! Due to hard economic times for us, it will be the only way we can have a “date night”. Thank you for your kind consideration!!

  441. Jay-R April 4, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

    I have never been to a Cirque Du Soleil show. Would be so awesome to win tickets for my first time! :)

  442. Jamie Michaud April 4, 2012 at 7:09 pm #

    I love how Cirque du Soleil can make adults feel like wide eyed children in awe!

  443. Lisa April 4, 2012 at 9:26 pm #

    Please!?!? AM I too late. I have never been to a show like this…EVER

  444. Brian Vranizan April 5, 2012 at 9:50 am #

    If anybody is looking for tickets I have 2 VIP tickets for tonight which is opening night and it includes free food , parking and souvenirs including the show program and you can call or text me at 971-313-4278 and I am asking for $180 each which is less than what I paid for them . I can’t go because I work tonight

  445. Megan April 5, 2012 at 11:27 am #

    I have always wanted to see this show soooo badly!! I have never won anything or wanted to win anything so badly in my LIFE!!

  446. Laura April 5, 2012 at 2:54 pm #

  447. John April 5, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

  450. Jenny April 5, 2012 at 4:43 pm #

    My boyfriend just recently told me that it’s been on his life-long wish list to see Cirque Du Soleil. It just so happens that this performance is the same week as his birthday. It might be kismet!

  451. Drew Panda Chandler April 5, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    I want to impress a girl….. Need I say more?

  452. Andrea April 5, 2012 at 4:53 pm #

    I seriously need to take my niece to see this show. She would get me a kick ass birthday gift if I did!! Please?!?!

  453. Julie April 5, 2012 at 6:29 pm #

    I love the artistry of Cirque makeup and would love to see a live show!

  454. Toby April 5, 2012 at 6:33 pm #

    Because this would be awesome!

  455. luanne bonich April 5, 2012 at 6:41 pm #

    I’d love to see this! I’ve never seen before….winning tickets would rock!

  456. Michelle April 5, 2012 at 7:13 pm #

    I would love to win this because I lived in Vegas for 11 years and always worked and never had time to see a show. Now I am here and can not afford one. I have spent my life caring for others and would love to do something that I want to do.

  457. josh April 5, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

    me me me ,pick me just kidding i probably dont deserve it

  458. Jen April 5, 2012 at 7:42 pm #

    I have always wanted to go to a Cirque Du Soleil and this looks like the coolest one yet!

  459. Tia April 5, 2012 at 8:01 pm #

    Greetings Fellow nerds and geeks! Yes, you, the ones who would obviously rather go to a show where people dress as bugs for entertainment than say….a music show with free beer….because we like to stimulate our minds! Fantasy, insects, omg the elaborate costumes, theatre and a beautiful LOVE STORY. I wanna
    And it’s my birthday on April 12th…..twould be a lovely gift….

    Hope to see you there!
    -Tia-

  460. Matt April 5, 2012 at 11:34 pm #

    Cool! Le Cirque du Soleil and their insects sound positively weird…

  461. HGV April 6, 2012 at 1:54 am #

    my 16yr old nephew told me about this show & its creation and with his obsession with everything reptilian, I want to take him to this show and would LOVE free tix :)

  462. Tom April 6, 2012 at 7:02 am #

    Because Cirque du Soleil is the most amazing show ever. I just want to watch the human body do things it’s not meant or supposed to. Bonus is they do it all with no animals.

  463. Alberta April 6, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    My husband & I are celebrating our 25th anniversary this year and this would be wonderful to see, as we have never been able to see this show.

  464. steve parker April 6, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    Seen Cirque on tv but never live because they were either sold out or I couldn’t get the $$$ together at the time. Would be great to enjoy a live “insect” experience.

  465. Kelly Andrews April 6, 2012 at 11:01 am #

    My wonderful high-school-Language-Arts-teaching/free-lance article writing/1927-kitchen-remodeling/fun-loving/laughing/dancing/joking/constant-noise-making husband is turning 46 on Monday and I would be thrilled to be able to surprise him with the gift of a Cirque du Soleil performance. This would rock his world………..

    Thank you for making this dream come true for some lucky winner!

  466. Lauren April 6, 2012 at 11:07 am #

    I want to attend because my boyfriend and I are in desperate need of a date night (his parents have been in town for a month!!!!)!

  467. Emily April 6, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

    I would LOVE to see this amazing show! I thought the free tix had already been given away though?? I hope not!

  468. mimi April 6, 2012 at 2:38 pm #

    Would just love, love, love to go. Never been…too expensive…

  469. Addie April 6, 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    I want to take my good friend who is visiting me from Seattle. Boom. Beat that!

  470. matthew cleveland April 6, 2012 at 10:36 pm #

    my son loves bugs and the first time he saw an ad for this event in portland his jaw dropped and he just stared, i have never been able to take him to anything like this due to how hard it is to come up with the money to buy these tickets. I know he would love this to the point that he would never stop taking about for time to come.

  471. niki April 7, 2012 at 9:31 am #

    I’m in love with insects and have never been to a cirque show!

  472. Hania April 7, 2012 at 12:04 pm #

    When I heard there was a possibility to win free tickets to Cirque du Soleil at Saturday market I was thrilled. My partner won a $25.00 gift certificate to the market and I was shocked not to win the tickets! This is my second opportunity to win the tickets and I am the right choice! See you at the theater.

  473. Bennett April 10, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

    There’s about 3 billion comments already. Help me PDX Pipeline…. You’re my only hope

  474. Michelle Warnke April 11, 2012 at 11:47 am #

    I would love to go this but just can’t afford it. Winning tickets would be amazing! And I could surprise my boyfriend who I was begging to take me.

  475. John Zeller April 12, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

    I want to bring my girlfriend to see this amazing show!!!

  476. Michelle April 12, 2012 at 11:11 pm #

    I L-O-V-E Cirque Du Soleil!! Every time I see an add, I sigh. With our four kids and limited finances, we can’t afford tickets, so I would be extremely excited to win them!!!! :)

  477. David April 13, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

    My wife and I would love to go. She has never seen a cirque du soleil show!

  478. kathy April 17, 2012 at 9:42 am #

    I would be so blessed to win ticket to Cirque Du Soleil!! My Husband and I would have a blast.

  479. James Iyoda April 24, 2012 at 10:37 am #

    I have seen Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas, and they are incredible! I would love to see it again while they are in Portland area!

  480. kirsten hart April 26, 2012 at 10:35 am #

    I have never seen a show like this and would love the opportunity.

  481. Ben December 20, 2013 at 8:13 pm #

    Cirque du Solei is awesome, and so are insects! They both can do fantastic things in the air. That’s why I’d love to see this show.

  482. Ilesha January 10, 2014 at 9:42 pm #

    I have no idea how these cirque de solei people do it… Gotta see it!!

  483. Beth February 18, 2016 at 9:49 pm #

    I have never seen them & it has been on my bucket list for over 30 years! Too expensive for my budget, but hoping to get lucky!!!

  484. Joseph March 19, 2016 at 9:45 pm #

    I would love to surprise my wife & mother of my two children with these tickets for Mother’s Day!
