The Moscow State Circus returns to the UK with this once -in-a-life-time opportunity to see this award-winning show Legenda.
Bringing with it a huge cast of Russia’s greatest and most flexible circus performers, many of the critically acclaimed acts are pushing the boundary of human physical ingenuity to its limits. However, this time the greatest show on earth has had a face lift and been revolutionised. The world’s most famous circus collides with the legendary Russian folklore figure Rasputin to create a sensational show that combines contemporary & classical circus at it’s very best.
Rasputin was often described as a romantic, a mystic and a visionary. Words that could easily be used to describe this new spectacle. Entitled Legenda, his vivid dreams will form the theme of the show, entwined with the pride of Russia’s most magnificent circus artistes and state of the art special effects.
The newly devised show includes:
- The Didyk, a double Russian swing troupe acrobatically catapulting themselves high into the big top & across the ring.
- Gregory’s Girls suspended in mid-air on floating silks.
- Doctorov’s unbelievable Human Statues and breathtaking balancing action which defy gravity and the laws of physics.
- Bortnikova body twisting contortionists.
- Award-winning clowns,Valik & Valerik, who have perfected the art of slapstick and Buster Keeton style cunning capers.
- Kvlividze Troupe on the rotating Wheel of death
- The unbelievable crossbow act of The Popazovs – you will see a wife shoot an apple off her husband’s head from 7 simultaneous crossbows!
And it will all be hosted by Andre Voronin as Rasputin
The entire show is housed in a specially designed chapiteau big top and is uniquely domed to accommodate the complex rigging for the aerial acts, it is supported by only four “king” poles so as not to obscure the audiences view.
