The Great Moscow Circus

By | May 31, 2009

Last night Chell and I took the kids in to see The Great Moscow Circus. The show started at 7:30pm so we decided to leave at 6:45pm to make it to Riverway on time (we live about 5 minutes away).

When we arrived the line up was crazy busy and we thought it would take AGES to get in. It took about 15 – 20 minutes or so to get inside and than we had to sit there until about 7:40pm for the show to start.

The show was amazing with so many different acts. There was acrobatics and balancing and contortionists bending in ways you wouldn’t think is possible. There was a clown that had got people out of the crowd to help out with acts, juggling acts with rings and fire and a magic show which was amazing and still has me spellbound.

There was an act where the ringmaster was drunk and jumping around on his trampoline, it was quite funny and a must see.

There were miniature ponies which were very well trained and two brothers on the wheel of death which is a big rotating wheel in which they perform acrobatics on, it was unbelievable. The finale was “The Globe of Death” which involved 4 motorbike riders riding around in a cage which was 4m in diameter, it was crazy.

I recommend anyone thinking about going to see The Great Moscow Circus to go and see it, it is an event that you will never forget!
