In association with the Russian State Circus Company and Moscow’s Nikulin Circus, Australian producers Andrew Guild and Simon Bryce are bringing ZIRK! – Russia’s Big Top Circus Spectacular to Australia in 2019. 

The show combines the thrills and fun of a traditional circus with some edgier, surprising performances. 

Hold your breath watching the jaw-dropping ‘Double, Double Giant Wheel’. 

Marvel at the agility and precision of the ‘Fast Track’ Russian acrobats and gasp at the death-defying aerialists. 

There’s also comedians, contortionists, jugglers, trampoline masters and more.

Showcasing the best of Russia together with a collection of internationally celebrated circus stars from Cuba, Germany, Colombia, Australia, Canada, Mexico and the USA - many of the ZIRK! stars have worked in the best circuses around the world. 

Which means they really know their stuff. So prepare to have them blow your socks off. 

“We wanted to create something that highlighted the best of Russia’s 140-year circus traditions and marry those with the expectations of a 21st-century audience,” producer Andrew Guild said. 

“It’s fast-paced, family friendly and includes some of the most electrifying acts you will see under the Big Top Chapiteau. For children it is a show they will never forget... even more so for adults!” 

The Big Top Chapiteau tour will commence on 14 June, 2019 in Canberra at Majura Park Showgrounds, followed by a Sydney season at The Showring, the Entertainment Quarter on 5 July 2019, with other cities to be announced soon. 

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 27 March 2019. Join the waitlist now.
