The Big Apple Circus presents Legendarium, where you will experience the nostalgic thrills of bygone big tops and get a first-hand view of beauties, daredevils, and clowns from another era.
Travel back to when circus traditions were born and witness incredible acts that would have had the villagers chattering for days.
The courageous mid-air flips and catches of a man on the trapeze, a captivating contortionist whose flexibility is as impressive as her steadfast poise, an agile, adept acrobat and her strapping suitors, a swaying wire act of sure-footed strength and stability!
The dizzying delights of a daring inventor in his tumbling, twirling hoop, the stunning, soaring beauty of a pair on aerial straps and a woman held aloft by hanging silks, a jaw-dropping juggling tango team performing to passionate rhythms!
Bicyclists whose spinning wheels turn smooth and speedy stunts, majestic horses with graceful gaits and playful pups with teasing tricks, and what circus would be complete without bumbling clowns who bring the spirit of timeless comedy?
It's all led by an affable ringmaster and the great Big Apple Circus Band playing the iconic songs of yesteryear. So run away with the Big Apple Circus and relive big tops of old in a memorable one-ring show for the ages!
