Many people dream of visiting Europe one day and immersing themselves in its culture. You will have the chance to experience a traditional event enjoyed in every village, town, and city across the “Old World:” A GENUINE, EUROPEAN TRAVELING CIRCUS WITH A UNIQUE FEATURE NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE IN AMERICA. Cirque Italia has gathered circus performers from around the world for this year’s production. The Cirque Italia owner decided to start a NEW CONCEPT in America with a TRAVELING 35,000 GALLON WATER STAGE!!!
This 40 foot Broadway circular style stage is 4 feet high and contains 35,000 gallons of water inside. During the show, audience members will be surprised when the lid lifts up to 35 feet in the air while a CURTAIN OF RAIN AND FOUNTAINS DANCE WITH EACH PERFORMANCE MOVE!
Some of the performances include: COCO THE CLOWN from Argentina who rides the WORLD’S SMALLEST BICYCLE; contortion on top of a 8 foot coat rack; a HULA HOOPING Balancing Act AROUND A RING OF WATER; Juggling Fusco Twins, Guinness Book World Record Juggling five clubs for the unsurpassed time of 57 minutes; A MERMAID that will dazzle little girls’ hearts while swinging above their heads; a Verticali Act ALL THE WAY FROM ITALY singing UPSIDE DOWN and more generations of circus families sharing with other families their talents from around the world. You won’t believe your eyes when you see the 360 LASERMAN ACT! A truly magical illusion! Blades of laser light are hand-manipulated right in front of your eyes! Watch the laws of physics crumble when the performer actually “holds” a beam of light in his hand, splits it into two, then bends it and spins it around like a light saber! He even throws the beams over your head, up into the tent, and creates blasts of excitement!
Come spend TWO hours with this exciting SPECTACULAR WATER AND ARTIST CIRCUS COLLABORATION! CIRQUE ITALIA is presented under a magnificent White & Blue Big Top Tent that is 110 feet in circumference and soars 70 feet into the air, where every seat is so close you’ll think you are in the Circus. It’s truly “Memories for a lifetime for Children of All Ages”.
