Description

The Big Apple Circus dares you to Dream Big

The world’s greatest circus artists are presented under an intimate Big Top, and no seat is more than 50 feet from the ring! Let your imagination soar and summon the most amazing acts — a juggler with a suit to fit his sweet feats of fancy handiwork! A mechanical doll who comes alive in a sinuous balancing act! Spirited horses, frolicsome dogs, and a capybara and porcupine to perk up the sawdust party! Audacious acrobats who astound with athletic grace! Comical conjurors with magical moments of grand illusion! The aerial daring of the trapeze flyers! A singing Ringmistress and the Big Apple Circus Band creating the ringing melodies of memories to last! And Grandma! Yes, Grandma, apogee of comical aspiration and mirthful joy! Your dreams will inspire a Big Apple Circus of living thrills and marvelous delight — a celebration of the imagination — an astonishing circus world of wonder! 

Renaud Doucet, who has performed as an actor, solo dancer, ballet master and choreographer in international dance companies, joins this season’s creative team as director and choreographer. 

The Big Apple Circus annually presents an all-new show featuring renowned circus artists from around the world. This year’s performers come from America, Bulgaria, China, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mongolia and Russia.

The show is 2 hours in length, including a 15-minute intermission.
