The Great Moscow Circus

The Great Moscow Circus Russian Bar Troup

Acrobats, a flying trapeze, clowns, animals and dare devil motorbike riders. The Great Moscow Circus is back in town, and it’s bigger and better than ever.

The production, brought to Australia by Michael Edgley, has spent the last three years travelling through Australia, raising nearly $500,000 for Australian charities.

It will finish its tour in Sydney, with a run of performances that will thrill and amuse audiences of all ages, from toddlers to the golden oldies.

Their infamous Globe of Death act has been updated, with five motorbikes now whizzing around a globe that miraculously splits in two, making it scarier than ever before.

With twenty sensational acts from Russia, and guest performers from all over the world, the circus promises to ignite the audience’s imagination with a two-hour show full of stunning visuals, high-tech lighting and elaborate costumes. (SOC)
